Cornish Rex

Day 26 of 365 days of photos

This is a Cornish Rex Cat, and he loves to drink from the faucet.
As the name suggests, they come from Cornwall in England. As a matter of fact, the Cornish Rex cats are a genetic mutation that originated from a litter of cats that was born in a barn in Cornwall. The male offspring was bred with the mother to produce two more kittens and the male amongst these two kittens was bred with a Siamese cat. The offspring of this pair are the foundation of this breed. Just a bit of history of this soft sweet cat.
