| The Cornish Rex is known as the Greyhound of Cats due to its racing ability. The Cornish Rex lacks an outer coat of hair, having only the fuzzy down that exists as a base coat on most cats. The term Rex as applied to the Cornish Rex is used to denote unusual fur. Although they have less hair than other cats, Cornish Rexes still cause allergic reactions in people who are sensitive to cats.
