She doesn't beg for me to feed her own food or for me to give her my food. If shes doing something wrong just one "No!" and she stops, she stays off the counters, she walks on a leash outside with me. She talks to me occasionally. Shes perfect, except she doesn't want me petting her (it sucks because she is soo super soft! Just like a lilac point should be) or kissing her, I can hold her and carry her around but no loving on her! I plan on getting another Siamese one day because I love them and want another one.
But the Cornish Rex. Can anyone tell me about them? I have read (and met one) that they are similar to a Siamese, they are active cats. They are really affectionate is what I have heard, is this true? Would a Cornish want me to pet him and curl up on my lap and purr when I pet him?
Well, both me and my mom have cornish rex's. I have no idea if they act like siamese, because I've never met a siamese before. But my Bijou sure can talk like one! They are both very affectionate cats, sometimes to the point of annoying!
When they want to be held, there is nothing that you can do to stop them. If you have a blanket or a heating pad, they will be your friend for life. They are also both very active. Mine leaps and runs around the house all of the time at full throttle. My mom's cornie is older, (12) and has slowed down some. When mine isn't playing, she's sneaking around looking for warm spots lol. My cornie loves dogs, and acts like one herself. My mom's isn't so wild about dogs, but she does just fine when I bring my pug over to visit. They have huge personalities for such small cats. They are a little bit stuck up though!
My Bijou does NOT like other cats, but then again she has been living the single life for about ten years. We tried adding another cat to the mix, but she wasn't having any of that, so we had to rehome the new cat. My mom's lives with a 14 year old male ragdoll, but they grew up together.
Here is my cornish rex Bijou:http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=160285
Oh, and my cornish rex is FAR from perfect. She is a pig. I have read that they tend to get fat, so we have to really watch her weight. She will eat everything in front of her and look for more. She will steal food if you turn your back for a second. And she screeches at the top of her lungs for food all of the time. You would think that I was starving her! She also likes to hang out in wet sinks and showers for some reason. (she doesn't like baths much though) She has been known to rip apart hardbound books WHILE you are reading them. (She doesn't like to be ignored) And she likes to eat wicker baskets and shoes.
When Bijou goes to the bridge, I will definitely be getting another rex.
Are you thinking of getting one?
