Cornish Rex Breed

The Cornish Rex cat breed originated in Cornwall, England, in 1950 and arrived in the U.S. in 1957. The breed was accepted for championship status in CFA in 1964 and TICA in 1997.

The Cornish Rex is a curly-coated cat breed. Cornish Rex cats have a soft down coat without any guard hairs or mid-coat. The coat develops curls after about 4 months of age, falling in tight rows of marcel waves.

This elegant breed has an arched body with a tuck-up at the waist, with a long tapering tail, long fine-boned legs and small dainty paws. They are muscular, athletic and built for speed like a Greyhound dog. Cornish Rex cats are one of the most petite of the cat breeds.

The head is egg-shaped with large ears positioned toward the top of the head. The ears and eyes look like they are designed for mind control.

The genetics of the Cornish Rex cat breed is different than the genetics of the Devon Rex, Selkirk Rex and LaPerm cate breeds.

Cornish Rex cats do not shed much, but they are not hypoallergenic. No cat is truly hypoallergenic, as the Fel-d-1 allergens are in the cat's saliva and dander, not the fur.
