Cornish & Devon Rex

By Johan Lamprecht

When you mention “Rex”, the majority of people in the cat world will immediately know about and think of both the Cornish and Devon Rex breeds.

"History
Munchkin is a naturally occurring, domestic cat breed characterized by unusually short legs. These short-legged cats have been documented in 1930s in England. But World War II took its toll on the cat and threatened the extinction of this species. These cats were rediscovered in Europe in 1980s.

Just because it is a natural mutation does not make it okay. If a human was born with no limbs, is it natural? Of course. But it is still…

Many of the things you are calling "deformed" are harmless, natural mutations. The Manx cat is a naturally occurring breed from the Isle of Man. Spynx and Peterbalds are also naturally occurring - and harmless. The Spynx, other than being cold, is a very hardy cat. The Scottish fold is another naturally occurring mutation - as is the long haired gene! These breeds you site are not unhealthy, so you're really misinformed. They carry no higher risk of illness than any other breed or domestic short hair. What does a folded ear, for instance, have to do with healthy kidneys, or…
