Welcome to CRCS
The Society was formed with the
'To work for a wider
recognition and appreciation of
Cornish Rex cats by owning, breeding and exhibiting
these cats and recognising the role of the
Cornish Rex Variant in the development of the breed.'
In other words, we want everyone to love and appreciate these
beautiful curly cats. There are already four other clubs catering
for Rex cats, but none of these are specifically for the Cornish Rex
and Cornish Rex Variants. A group of enthusiastic owners got
together and said 'let's do something to promote the Cornish Rex as
we feel they are often put to one side in favour of the Devon Rex'.
So here we are with our own club.
We appreciate the need for outcrossing to strengthen the lines of
the Cornish Rex and so as a Society we would like everyone to help,
wherever possible, the few breeders that are able to undertake an
outcross programme. This does not mean that we expect everyone to
outcross, this is not always possible, but please support those that
do. It is often difficult to home the lovely variants that are
produced, but with everyone's help life can be a little easier.
We would like to make this Society as friendly and informative as
possible, so please feel free to contact us, by writing to the Hon.
Secretary, with any views and suggestions you may have.
We look forward to
seeing this Society grow and this in turn will generate more
interest in our wonderful Cornish Rex.
Would you be interested in playing an active part in the Society?
e.g. helping with Society tables at Cat Shows - either manning or
providing items for sale; fund-raising; help with the Magazine and
other literature; GCCF Delegate or BAC representative etc. If so,
please contact us.
2014 2nd Championship Show
Our next show will be held on Sunday April 6th
2014 at Aldersley Leisure Complex, Aldersley Road, Wolverhampton,
West Midlands, WV6 9NW where we will be sharing the hall with not
only the Shorthaired Cat Society but also the Midland Cat Club as
well as the other single breed shows.
This will mean that you will have the choice of
three shows to enter, your own clubs show and one other with the
same cat; however you can
enter all three with different cats.
For the purpose of show clarification important for
Olympian contenders, the Shorthaired CS is classified as a breed
club but the Midland of course is an all breed.
Fingers crossed we’ll have some nice spring
sunshine, but I’ll settle for a fine dry morning.
However if you are unable to attend perhaps you'd
like to support the club show by sponsoring rosettes (all of which
will be acknowledged at the head of your chosen class), taking an
advert in the catalogue, offering specials, raffle prizes or just
making a donation to show funds.
May I take the opportunity of wishing you all the
the very best for the New Year and look forward to seeing you all on
6th April 2014….......make
sure you put that date in your new diary!!
Stay safe and happy until then
Show Manager, Cornish Rex Cat Society
