Cornish Rex - r

Cornish Rex has awn hairs and down hairs, but have no guard hairs. The coat hairs are shorter than normal and wavy. The whiskers are also shorter than normal and often bent. This rex gene, which is recessive, appeared in 1950 in Cornwall, England. The curly coat of the German Rex seems to be caused by this gene too.
