    Skin problems are most often related to diet in this breed. A deficiency in vitamin E can cause eczema, rashes, and even hair loss. Some Cornish Rex Cats also need regular bathing. Cats have normal oily secretions on their skin. Like all cats, the Rex can get a buildup of sebaceous secretions, but its hair is too short to absorb them as with ordinary cats. It can make the coat look greasy and can cause skin problems. The amount of bathing varies with each individual, some need a weekly bath while other can go for months in between baths. Hope this helps.

I adopted a 2 year old cat from rspca 8 weeks ago,he is very vocal he hates being left alone he doesn't like staying outside for long he only stopes crying if you let him sleep on bed with you he is black ,but also looks quite brown especially under his legs & underside .the rspca couldn't tell us much about him as he had been abandoned but they said they thought he looked oriental ,his head looks simular to a siemese he has quite thin legs compaired to other cats we've had his tail is also thin & has a kink to it ,he also has long sharp claws ,as soon as you sit down he edges his way onto your lap if you are reading he sits on paper ,I am concerned if he is an oriental cat does he need looking after any different from other cats ,as my others have all been independent & loved going out doors.

I rescued a kitten on the road in India and I've adopted him as my own.
Is it possible that he is an ocicat coz he is ginger and brown and spotted and fits all the categories. Is dis possible that he is an ocicat ???

    I live in Southern Indian(Puttaparthi AP) and have had three feral kittens become family members. They all looked like ocicats. There are many such cats in this area that favour that breed. Personally I think they are simply what nature intended them to look like. They all have very outgoing and in charge personalities...make for great pets, assuming you don't mind the usual expectations that his the master and your there to serve😻 Enjoy Jayashri

We got Chase 8 years ago from the ASPCA. He was just a tyke and running around with his friend and so we planned to take both, but couldn't :( Well, we got Chase home and he immediately got us wondering why we hadn't gotten a cat sooner. At the time we had a mouse problem and Chase earned his name because he snatched them up, brought them to us, which ALWAYS scared me to death, but he was always so proud! Needless to say, the Misee problem cleared up quick-fast! After a few months a friends cat had kittens- so in order for Chase to have company, we got Little, a female tabby. Chase was amazing with her. He accepted her immediately and whenever w couldn't find her, we asked Chase and he always led us to her. In July I got a daschund puppy for my daughter birthday. Chase once again showed he's a hospitable guy and welcomed her. She has since grown and has tried to prove her dominance as a dog, but Chase remains the true alpha male. Its the cutest thing, because Mocha is much smaller than Chase (she's a mini), she does a barking dance around him while he just sits. When he gets up, she runs sooooo fast. Chase has been the most loving, personable, beautiful cat. I can't imagine ever being without him. Yes, he's finicky-he refuses to eat hard food, but he's worth all the fancy feast in the world. He loves to be petted and told how beautiful he is, and he is! I massage his lush mane and tell him that he's my 'big handsome'and he loves that. People love to come see him and take pictures because he's so big and good-looking, easily the 'prettiest boy' they've ever seen. When he talks to me its with the teeniest voice, yet I love to hear that, as well as his big bear snore while sleeping. I know this is long, but as I type from my bed, Mocha is sleeping to my right, and my Big Handsome is sleeping on my left. I can't tell you just how much Chase is loved by the entire family.

I've never really had pets in my life, until my family decided to adopt a tabby/siamese. I thought she was great, until I met my baby Santana! She was less than a year old when I adopted her from the shelter. She was rather shy and wouldn't acknowledge me, until I got her home. She's the prettiest gal I've ever seen. She's been very patient with me, starting my first semester in college, and moving out into an apartment. She used to go outside a lot, but as soon as I brought her to our new place, she knew she owned it (even though I don't quite trust her when it comes to the 3rd story windows). She wakes me up every morning with kisses,and crawls on my chest before bed or when I'm on the couch. When she gets fiesty she bites and claws at my hand for a brief period, then decides to wrap her paws around it and cuddle to sleep. She waits at doors for me to, and has the cutest chirp. At this point in my life, I can never see myself having any cat besides one of these big lovebugs.

    We currently have 5 cats that we love and will take care of for the rest of their life... A year ago however, cat number 6 passed away. He was a Maine Coon named China. He was the most beautiful tabby coon cat in the world! He was Adopted from a Maine Coon rescue group/shelter. He ended up saving our children on several different occasions from scorpion bites, he found them, killed them and then he would alert us of their location. p.s. we live in Arizona. #RIPChina This post is in memory of China Doll our Big Coon daddy. We Love You Bear!

I had two of these cats growing up, at different times. Our original one was a female tabby who was said to have simply curled up in the stroller with me when I was 2 and hitched a ride home from the breeder's. She was very sweet, but an excellent judge of character and could be shy around people she deemed untrutworthy (we found out about them later). Hated my aunt's pomeranian though. She lived to 16. Our second one was a ginger male. He was rescued by us at our old house, but eventually got adopted by another owner.

We found a mouse at krogers a month ago it was cold so we took her home she was sooo hungry and she ate up all the food in our auto feeder...lol. I found out today she is a turkish angora. She's a wonderful lil kitty and she is a blessing in our home. The vet said she is about 8 mos old and is in great health. Her name is mouse because she's timid and cute. Shes not deaf and she's just wonderful! We love her so much I don't want to think what would have become of her had we not found her!

    Gads, I'm not sure but here's what I've found. Serval cats especially need extra calcium for at least the first 2 years of their lives, and basically supplement them just as you would a growing puppy.  A great source is a chicken leg quarter (with the bone) and this is said to be pretty well balanced in calcium and the most well absorbed form. Also adding a calcium powder to their food, like OsteoForm calcium powder works well, as does cottage cheese... an excellent source of calcium, phosphorus, protein and vitamins. Good luck!

I saw ad in paper about someone selling Bengals at $100. I called and went out to his place where he had a barn full of cats in cages. He had lots of cats and kittens they all appeared to be Bengals. He showed me 2 female kittens and the older female kitten for $100. They all seemed skittish and not friendly. He said they would get friendly as they were handled more often. Then I saw a white kitten and asked to hold it. He was a pale white male with beautiful blue eyes and pale spots on his back. When I held him he started purring and never stopped and stayed in my arms and never tried to leave. I knew he belonged to me. I bought him and called him Ram Z. When I was at the store getting food and litter I called the breeder to ask him what food he was feeding but he never answered my call or messages which made me wonder who he really was. He is from Michicot, WI. Does anyone know about him and his cats? I love my cat but wonder who he is and if he is honest?

    Something sounds real strange there.  The kittens should be friendly and i don't know if you saw Bengals.  You might think about calling Animal Control, checking to see if he is licensed.  You can ask them about the conditions as real suspicious sounding.
