History: In 1950 in Cornwall, England, the first Cornish Rex kitten was born of a barn cat and an unknown sire. The parent took this curly coated cat into her home, named him Kallibunker, and began what became the Cornish Rex breed. 

     One year later, another wavy-haired female, Laemmchen, was found living on the grounds and in the basement of the Hufeland Hospital in what was then East Germany. Her parent also knew nothing about her background. In the late 1950s, Laemmchen had a litter with two curly coated kittens, even though she had nothing but straight-hair kittens in several earlier litters.

     The German Rex were first shown in 1960, and quickly spread from Germany to France, England and the United States.

Fun fact: They tend to be lively, playful, and intelligent.
