More details about the Californian Rex

Californian Rex: Origins and history

The Californian Rex was first developed in the US in the 60s, as a long-haired variant of their Cornish Rex cousin. A number of feline associations didn’t recognise the Californian as a breed in their own right, but rather as a distinct variety of the same breed. These cats remain rare and little-known to this day.

Californian Rex: Purchase price

We do not have enough data to set an average price for a Californian Rex, but the price often varies depending on the lineage, breeding, age or even the sex. Given the rarity of this breed, there is no definitive data on an upper price limit.

For your monthly budget, you will need around £35 per month to meet their needs, by offering them a quality diet and ensuring to keep them in good health.
