9 Exotic Cat Breeds You May Have Never Seen Before


2. Cornish Rex

The coat of any cat has three layers: the outer, the guard hair, then the middle, which is their “own” hair, and, finally, the lower layer, the down hair or fur. What makes Cornish Rex peculiar is that they have only down hair.

That`s why they are irresistible to touch; they are soft like teddy bears. Another unusual thing about them is that sometimes Rexes may have curly fur. But, notwithstanding their hair, this breed is not adapted to live outdoors.

They are always there where it is warm, by your side, on the couch, or your lap. You`ll notice them smelling like cheese; that is because these exotic cats have a gland in the paws, which other cats do not have.

These cats are playful; it takes them a little more time to become adults to behave like a kitten for some time. If you want to have this one, you have to be ready to see them running in a gallop. The cats of this breed are extremely active, even sporty, so they run, race, jump high, fetch, and sometimes contrive to do acrobatic jumps. They will be a real delight for a big active family, especially with kids.
