Know of a Cornish Rex in Need?

Cornish Rex Friends was formed by a group of friends working together for rescue and protection of the Cornish Rex breed. The founding group consists of responsible breeders, exhibitors and pet owners that have united to work together for the Cornish Rex breed.

We aim to:

  • Share information and giving assistance with the care of rescued Cornish Rex cats.
  • Share information on food, care and medical treatment.
  • Help with caring for abused Cornish Rex cats.
  • Work as partners with animal shelters and government rescue organizations.

We welcome those with sincere interest in working together as a group to coordinate Cornish Rex cat rescue efforts including placement and fostering. We welcome those interested in providing secure and loving foster homes and those interested in providing secure loving permanent homes.

This group is not an extension of any other Cornish Rex cat organization. We are dedicated to the health, welfare and protection of the Cornish Rex cat breed. We have volunteers nationwide and are based in Southern and Central California.

KOSH, Champlain, NY (updated July 30, 2018)

Kosh the Cornish Rex

Kosh the Cornish RexKosh is a sweet, sensitive,  seven year old neutered male.  He is a very playful, headstrong, adventurous boy who loves to run, jump and climb.  When it's time to relax, Kosh snuggles up in his human's lap for cuddles.

Several changes in Kosh's life has stressed him, causing him to mark outside of the box.  In addition to moving to a new home, there's now another person and a toddler.  He is no longer getting the positive attention he deserves. 

He will need time, patience and someone with the appropriate space to try retraining techniques. Ideally, he'd start off in a small, contained area and gradually be given more space as he continues litterbox use.

Kosh would have the best chance of success in a calm home where he would be the only pet.  He hasn't ever lived with a dog.  If he were to go to a home with another cat, he would do best with a laid-back,  non-dominate feline.

Cornish Rex Friends would like him to first go to a home on a foster basis. Our organization will cover approved vet expenses and are we are available via phone/email/text for questions and advice. If a great match, fosters get priority in adopting.  We will first consider homes within a day's drive of Champlain, NY.  We will consider a further home if it is a perfect match.

For more info about Kosh please contact Lisa at or submit an adoption application.
