But this new breed, the Selkirk Rex
aka Poodle Cat?
Other flat-faced breeds are the British Shorthair, Scottish Fold, Munchkin and Selkirk Rex
. Their prominent eyes put them at risk of eye trauma when they run into an object or a sharp paw in a scuffle with another cat.
Officially called the Selkirk Rex, scientists at University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna, confirmed the breed's existence in a study published last year.
The Selkirk Rex has been known by cat connoisseurs and has been an accepted cat breed by the (http://www.tica.org/public/breeds/sr/intro.php) International Cat Association since 1992 and other major feline associations -- science only confirmed the cat breed in (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22837475) a study published in October 2012 .
La enfermedad del rinon poliquistico o PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) afecta al 38% de la poblacion mundial de gato persa y exotico, apareciendo tambien esporadicamente en otras razas que se han originado por cruzamiento con aquellas, como Selkirk Rex
