|Cornish Rex - Photograph copyright Helmi Flick|
A startling cat picture of the Cornish Rex purebred cat by the celebrated American professional cat photographer, Helmi Flick. This photograph would have been taken in America, perhaps at a cat show. This is not the sort of domestic cat that we are used to seeing. One of the Rex cats, the coat has a wavy, tight texture as you can see. The first Cornish Rex, Kallibunker, was born in the county of Cornwall in England in 1950. His mother was Serena. The town: Bodmin. This is a greyhound-like cat that is said to be acrobatic! A relatively rare cat breed. They come in a wide range of coat types and colors. The cat above is a black and white bicolor.

As for most purebred cats, the Selkirk Rex has been selectively breed to emphasize the physical characteristics of the founding cat.
