6 – Cornish Rex
Possessing a very slender and delicate build, the Cornish Rex weighs well under ten pounds, with the toms only weighing between 6 and 7 pounds and the females even less. The Cornish Rex has narrow face topped by large ears and centered on large, expressive eyes. One of the most noticeable things about this breed is its coat, which is wavy, but very soft to the touch. Almost any color coat can be found in a Cornish Rex, with the calicos being among the most attractive.
If you decide you want a Cornish Rex, be prepared for a cat that is not only affectionate, but is also somewhat clingy. Your Cornish Rex will be happiest when it’s interacting with you, whether this involves sleeping on your lap, playing, or just talking over the day’s events. This is an even-tempered breed that will get along with everyone in the family.
