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.
The Annual General Meeting will be held at Quinton House School,
Upton Hall, Upton Lane, Northampton, NN5 4UX, on Sunday 24th June
Lunch will be at 12 noon and the meeting will commence 1pm.

Memory of Chris Pape
It is with great shock and sadness the Cornish Rex Cat Society
have to inform members of the Cat Fancy of the passing of our
Welfare Officer Chris Pape, who passed quietly to the other
side in the early hours of Friday morning 30/12/2011
Chris Worked tirelessly for the Cornish and Devon Rex cat for
many years, breeding and showing under her prefix of Nelshan.
For many years Chris worked hard as Welfare Officer with the Rex
Cat Club and later with the Cornish Rex Cat Society.
Always her work was done quietly with the upmost discretion at
all times. Her main thought was always for the cats.
I personally will miss my friend and mentor, who over the years
has taught me so much and with whom I shared many joys, giggles and
