Cornish Rex Cattery Breeders of Award winning quality cats since 1990
Member of the Canadian Cat Association
The Cornish Rex is a unique breed of cat. Not only is it different looking but it is also different in its fur. The Cornish Rex cat has only one of the three hair types found on most other cats. It lacks the outer coat and the guard hairs. It only has the down coat, which is real hair. Because of this type of hair the Cornish Rex does not moult. It does have hair coming out like you or I do when we brush our hair. Most people think this is good for allergies. Yes and no. The no shedding does relieve you because of no hairs lying around the house. One thing you must remember the Rex can produce allergic reactions just as severe as a regular cat.
