About The Cornish Rex The Cornish Rex breed has soft, wavy, curly hair -- even the whiskers curl! The coat feels like crushed velvet encasing a racy, sleek body. They are bred in a wide variety of colors and patterns.

A Cornish Rex has never met a stranger. They love people and other animals, and are best kept in pairs, or at least with another cat of their own activity level. Cornish Rex love to climb and be up high as part of their daily play, so expect high-flying acrobats in your home when you live with a Cornish Rex. Don't expect them to slow down with age; they remain kittenish and playful well into their senior years.

Cornish Rex are not hypoallergenic, but some people with mild allergies can tolerate them better than other breeds. They are minimal shedders but still produce some dander.
Did You Know? All Cornish Rex can trace their lineage back to a curly-haired cat named Kallibunker, who born in 1950 in a barn in Cornwall, England.
