The Cornish Rex is a lean, muscular cat of medium foreign type, it has a wedge shaped head, strong chin, large upright ears set high on their head and oval
shaped eyes. They have a flat skull with a straight profile.
They stand tall on long slim legs with dainty oval paws and have long tails expressing their every mood.
The most important characteristic is the coat, it has no guard hairs and is extremely
wavy and soft to the touch, like crushed velvet. The rexing should be all over the body, whiskers and eyebrows are also curly. The coat can vary from cat to cat ranging from loose waves to fine curls to deeply rippled waves.
The Cornish Rex can come in any colour or pattern including solids, smokes, bi-colours, tortoishells, dilute colours, tabbies and si-rex .
