The Rexphiles

Cornish Rex Friends was formed by a group of friends working together for rescue and protection of the Cornish Rex breed. The founding group consists of responsible breeders, exhibitors and pet owners that have united to work together for the Cornish Rex breed.

We aim to:

  • Share information and giving assistance with the care of rescued Cornish Rex cats.
  • Share information on food, care and medical treatment.
  • Help with caring for abused Cornish Rex cats.
  • Work as partners with animal shelters and government rescue organizations.

We welcome those with sincere interest in working together as a group to coordinate Cornish Rex cat rescue efforts including placement and fostering. We welcome those interested in providing secure and loving foster homes and those interested in providing secure loving permanent homes.

This group is not an extension of any other Cornish Rex cat organization. We are dedicated to the health, welfare and protection of the Cornish Rex cat breed. We have volunteers nationwide and are based in Southern and Central California.

Yoda, Philadelphia, PA (October 7, 2014) ADOPTED!

Yoda the Cornish Rex in Philadelphia

Yoda is just about to turn ten. He's a purebred, neutered Cornish Rex. He has been front declawed. His people are moving and cannot take him with them.

Yoda is very, very friendly--wants attention; sometimes will meow or otherwise try to distract you to get your attention; and he has no hesitation to sit in your lap. He’s an “inside cat” and has never been kept in an environment where going outside was remotely possible for him. He gets along well with another younger, domestic cat. He loves everyone; very happy to purr and be petted. He’s happy to sleep with you, including on you, and happy to let your hand rest on him while you sleep as well. He has also lived with a docile golden retriever five times his size and weight.

His health is good, except he’s overweight and could stand to be on a diet. He takes no medicines and has no medication allergies. He has good litterbox habits. Yoda is fine around kids. He’ll play and chase the feather or toy on a stick.

To be added to our general interest list for future rescues, submit an adoption application.

We have two Yahoo! Groups, CornishRexFriends, our rescue-focused list; CornishRxBC, our everything else list: stories, pictures, health and behavior discussions, litter announcements, etc.
