So very sorry to read that you have lost a loved Selkirk. Yes we have quite a menagerie here, 2 BSHs both colourpoints and three Selkirks, short and long curly and our girl who is a variant. She is the youngest but beginning to rule the roost. Our Selkirks have such a fun nature, constant kitten like antics, hence one just coming out of a broken leg cast last week! You'll love it here, sound advise and caring people.
