Nina Ennismore, the first owner of Cornish Rex cats, began to work intentionally to replicate this breed of the cat after seeing it producing a different and beautiful breed. Ennismore, who did this job in a completely amateur manner, succeeded in producing cats in the same way by chance, and the Cornish Rex breed soon became popular.

The name of the Cornish Rex breed comes from a different region-specific to the region, called the “rex rabbit.” This cat breed began to be recognized as a unique breed by all cat communities in 1964.
