Maine Coon Rex

The Maine Coon Rex is a curly haired Maine Coon. The word "rex" is used in the cat fancy to describe curly haired cat breeds such as the Devon Rex and Cornish Rex.

The Maine Coon Rex popped up in the UK in the 1980s as a result of deliberate cross breeding with a curly haired cat or as a natural mutation.

The cat was considered deleterious to the Maine Coon breed and culled (breeding cats neutered).

Some people liked it and wanted to promote it. I don't think there are any pictures of this cat and certainly not ones that can be published under license. If you have one please tell me by leaving a comment.

You'll just have to visualize one! The LaPerm is probably a similar cat to be honest. You can see the LaPerm on this page.
