Cornish Rex Standard and EMS Code


Standard CRX

General

 



The Cornish Rex is distinguished by its slender and graceful appearance. It is surprisingly heavy due to its strong muscle tone. It is covered in characteristic wavy, soft coat and gives an overall appearance of being high on legs.


Size


Medium.


Head

Shape


Viewed from above: egg shaped, slightly longer than wide, of equal width from cheekbones to the end of skull; viewed in profile: flat skull, straight nose, strong chin.


Whiskers / Eyebrows


Crinkled or curved.


Neck


Elegant, slender, in proportion to body.


Ears

Shape


Large, wide at the base and tapering to rounded tips, well covered with fine hair


Placement


Set high on the head, held alert.


Eyes

Shape


Oval shaped slanting slightly upward, medium in size

Long, fine and tapering; covered with wavy hair, preferably without bare patches or being bushy.
