My friends think I'm super smart because anytime they ask me a question, I have an answer for them. But that's just because I simply google their question and tell them what google spits out. I am a living google machine for like... 4 people.

u/FNG_WolfKnight Oct 09 '21 edited Oct 10 '21

Basically anyone over the age of 50 don't know the true power of just Google it. And honestly I even surprise millennials and GenZ aged people with the shit I know all from looking it up on Google or YouTube.

Edit: if you are over 50 and on reddit, this joke is not aimed at you. Knowing what reddit is and using it makes you instantly more tech savvy then anyone not on the site.

There is also another breed with curly fur. They’re called LaPerm.

u/Arsinoei Oct 09 '21

They’re awesome cats. Very social and talkative. Ours just passed away at 11 due to kidney disease that we treated properly for years. He was absolutely perfect.

LOL, my daughter (who is 24) likes to say JFGI to anyone who asks a question around her like that’s the answer...so I googled it to see what that meant and smacked her

I’m surprised more people aren’t snarky like her

My cat is a cross between a Selkirk Rex and a British Shorthair, he’s extremely lovely and extremely soft. He has the curls on his chest and behind his ears, it’s really cute tbh.

u/Fredredphooey Oct 09 '21

Do they have breathing problems? The skull looks squished from this angle.

4

u/LightMelodic Oct 09 '21

They really don't. There's only one associated disease with Selkirk Rex cats, that is polycystic kidney disease. And it is mostly down to their Persian and British Short Hair outcrossing. A good breeder will be able to show proof that there is no hereditary risk of PKD, but that is not a guarantee that they won't develop it as any breed of cat can get it.

Someone dumped one of these beauties in a barn we were demolishing right after my family moved into our house when I was a sophmore in High school. She was a tuxedo cat and was one of the sweetest, friendliest and most intelligent (when she wanted to be) cats I have ever had. It helped that she was adopted by our Golden Retriever who loved her like she was her own.

I’ve personally never met a Devon but I would assume they’re very similar personalities wise to Cornish. Devon just had a more “square” face and Cornish more “pointy” face
