| American Wirehairs are considered to be the rarest cat breed by numbers registered with the CFA. American Wirehairs were first produced by an accident of genetics in a litter of barn cats. The first American Wirehair was purchased for $50 by Mrs. William O'Shea, who continued to breed the cats. American Wirehairs come from upstate New York. American Wirehairs have been exported to Germany and Canada.
