Ole Sam and Spook were sent a video, filled to the brim with antics, unbelievable Spartan feats and dubbed with children's laughter and squeals of delight as background audio. The cat was by any measure not your ordinary tabby cat found in most households. The cat was a Cornish Rex.
|Wishing to determine whether that what we had seen on the video was authentic or not, we turned to Linda Smith who features the Cornish Rex and a plethora of information about responsible cat stewardship on her theme based AP-Penmarric.|
In spite of the Cornish Rex's resemblance to ancient Egyptian statues, they actually first appeared in a litter of barn cats born about 1950 in Cornwall, England. They are very active cats whose kitten-like antics last their lifetime who love to play games like fetch, catch and throwing the discus.
|Yes what we had seen on the video was true and Linda's comfort in having a high of 19 cats, the laughter they evoke in times of stress with their antics and solace in being rubbed and rubbing themselves, the love and respect which is returned ten fold is evident. Not only in her carefully crafted web site but also in the joy of finding a theme based award program, to both teach and provide a learning experience for a visitor.|
When Linda's husband retired he had always had a mild allergy, which exploded into a full blown allergy because he was then always around their cats. No Linda has no cats but their family's love of cats has not diminished and they will hopefully one day have cats in their home again.
So dear reader be thankful along with Ole Sam and Spook, that a love for the Cornish Rex continues to be a source of excellent readership on the world wide web.
