The first Cornish Rex was born in 1950 in Britain of a litter of 5 kittens. This kitten had the features of the future Cornish Rex. Probably a genetic mutation made him a cat with soft and curly fur. To maintain this recessive mutation type, this male kitten was mated with his mother to create a new line. Couplings have also made with Siamese, Burmese and the British Shorthair. The breed was officially recognized in England in 1967.

It's a great cat, stirring, player, acrobat and always cheerful. It is renowned for being sociable with other cats and dogs. He hates loneliness that makes him a true pot of glue. It is an intelligent and very family cat. It is an excellent companion for children.
