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, karakul lamb, rabbit fur or silk. In
fact, it feels like a Cornish Rex coat and nothing else is the same. There
is even variation among individuals within the breed.
In addition to the coat, this breed has a distinct 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.
The body has been compared to a Whippet dog’s because of its arched back,
barrel chest, small waist and very long, fine legs. In spite of their
dainty appearance, these small to medium sized cats are extremely
hard-bodied and muscular, using their well developed hips and long legs for
fast starts and stops, quick turns and high jumps.
In personality, the Cornish Rex is extremely affectionate and
people-oriented. They are also active cats whose kitten-like antics last
for their lifetime and who can be very inventive in their play. Favorite
Cornish Rex games are fetch, catch and even “discus,” in which the cat uses
its hand-like paw to pick up and toss a small object. In spite of their
sophisticated, elegant appearance, Cornish Rex cats are anything but cool,
aloof or dignified. They are perfect pets for the owner who wants active
cats to participate in family life.
