Cowboy Claws Cornish Rex Cattery
About Cornish Rex
The Cornish Rex originated in Cornwall, England, where they first appeared in a litter of barn cats born about 1950.
In appearance, Cornish Rex cats are a study in curves starting most noticeably with their coat, which ideally falls in washboard waves.
The coat is very short, lies close to the body and is incredibly soft to the touch, prompting comparisons to cut velvet.
In addition to the coat, this breed has a distinctive head and body type. Large ears are set high on a comparatively small,
egg-shaped head with high cheekbones, hollow cheeks, and a high-bridged Roman nose and strong chin.
In spite of their dainty appearance, they are extremely muscular & athletic.
The Cornish Rex is affectionate, loving, loyal and people-oriented.
They remain active, silly & playful throughout their lives.
They are perfect pets for the owner who wants active cats to participate in family life.
Because of their extremely short, fine textured coat with minimal shedding,
many people consider the Cornish Rex to be allergy friendly.
However anyone with allergies who is considering owning a cat
should handle the specific cat he’s interested in before purchasing.
