About Cornish Rex cats

The Cornish Rex cat breed is often referred to as the ‘Greyhound of Cats’, due to their sleek appearance and active personality. Their distinctive coat is the product of a spontaneous natural mutation and was first recorded in the 1950s. Playful, intelligent and adaptable, the Cornish Rex makes for a spirited companion. A good choice for families with children, other pets or regular guests.

Benefits of fresh cat food for Cornish Rex cats

The Cornish Rex will receive a number of benefits when fed daily with fresh cat food, including:

● Better digestion

● Improved energy

● Shiny, healthy coats

Like other cats, the Cornish Rex breed are obligate carnivores, meaning they evolved to receive their nutrients from meat. Yet many well-known brands uses very little meat which is poor quality and cooked at high temperatures to last on a shelf for months, even years. This needs to change.
