Practice safe Rex: spay, neuter and rescue.

In memory of Rex Q of Rexphiles. I rescued him the summer of 1997 and he died Jan. 19, 2011. He was the most loving cat I ever had. The above photo is of him shortly after I rescued him.

"I had read all about how social Cornish Rexes are, how happy they are to interact, how playful and active they are, but these are adults who've lived with one person their whole lives. I can only think that they were well socialized as kittens, and that the natural Rex personality is to not only accept any human immediately, but to shower them with affection. Clearly human interaction is far more important to Rexes than territory.

"I have had some very outgoing and social cats in the past. But this is different. And while this may seem like sacrilege to confirmed cat people, I must say these are the most dog-like cats I've ever experienced. I heartily recommend Cornish Rexes to anyone--and don't worry about adopting an adult, if you'd rather go that route. I'm sure some are less effusive than others, and some might require more time to adjust to a new household, but on the fourth day since adding these guys to my menagerie, I have to say I am absolutely sold on this breed."
