Vandal House Cornish Rex
The story of this cattery started in 1988 when I moved 1200 miles away from home to take my first real job after graduating from college. I had no pets at the time, but as a life-long animal person, I soon realized just how much I missed having a furry companion.
As an allergy and asthma sufferer, I took note of an article in Cat Fancy magazine about cats and allergies. [Full disclosure: Cornish Rex cats are NOT hypoallergenic. I sought out this breed in hopes it might cause me less allergy trouble.] Be that as it may, I found an allergy specialist, took my shots and set out to find my first Cornish Rex. My first Cornish Rex lived to be 2 months shy of 20 years old. She was everything a great cat could be, soft, warm, loving, athletic, willful, comical, and more. She affirmed my love of the breed.
The idea to establish a cattery evolved after participating in Cat Fanciers Association and American Cat Fanciers Association events. My two main reasons to start a cattery are to preserve this relatively new breed by creating new lines, and by doing so, give more people the opportunity to add a Cornish Rex to their family.
Another of my great joys in life is throwing tea parties for my dear friends, so you’ll see a photo here and there of great times spent with my friends—and The Vandals.
