Pet Information – Cornish Rex

The Cornish Rex is an eye-catching cat with its curly coat and long-legged elegance. This small to medium sized cat’s most distinctive feature is its fur, which is short with a distinct wave or curl and lacks primary guard hairs. The legs are long and straight, giving an impression of height, and the paws are dainty ovals. The tail is long, thin and tapered, while the back curves upwards slightly and is arched with a rounded rump. Cornish Rexe’s may be considered elderly at between eight and ten years old and regular veterinary check ups from this age are advisable.  A Cornish Rex is ideal for families where there is always someone at home, but it is likely to become unhappy if it is left at home alone all day.  This curious, fun-loving and intelligent breed is sometimes described as ‘dog-like’ in its behaviour, and visitors to the house will probably be thoroughly investigated.

Life expectancy: 9 – 15 years
Originating country: Cornwall, England
Temperament: Active, affectionate, intelligent
Interesting fact: All Cornish Rex cats are descended from Kallibunker, a wavy haired kitten born to a straight haired mother and unknown father on a Cornish farm in 1950
