ALGEMEEN Uiterlijk The distinct feature of the American Curl Shorthair is their attractive, uniquely curled ears. Curls are well balanced, moderately muscled, svelte rather than massive in built. They are alert, active, with gentle, even dispositions.
Formaat Medium.
KOP Vorm Modified wedge without flat planes, moderately longer than wide, smooth transitions.
Formaat Medium in proportion to body.
Snuit Rounded with gentle transitions, no pronounced whisker break.
Kin Firm, in line with nose and upper lip.
Profiel Nose moderate in length and straight, slight rise from bottom of eyes to forehead, gentle curve to top of head, flowing into neck, without a break.
OREN Vorm Wide at base and open, curving back in smooth arc when viewed from front and rear. Tips rounded and flexible. Furnishings desirable.
Krulhoek Minimum 90 degree arc of curl, not to exceed 180 degrees. Firm cartilage from ear base to at least 1/3 of height.
Formaat Moderately large.
Plaatsing Erect, set equally on top and side of head.
OGEN Vorm Moderately large, walnut, oval on top and round on bottom, set on slight angle between base of ear and tip of nose one eye width apart.
Kleur Clear, brilliant, no relation to coat colour except blue eyes required in himalayan colour varieties.
NEK   Graceful.
LICHAAM Torso vorm Medium in size. Length one and-half times height at shoulder, medium depth of chest and flank.

Voeten Medium and rounded.
STAART   Flexible, wide at base, tapering, equal to body length.
Beharing Korthaar Same length as body coat.
