Excellent

I have purchased two kittens from Paula at Rexes and had great experiences with her. Anytime I had health questions she was available, attentive, and helpful. My cats are great. I purchased pure breeds for the personality and the lack of shedding. It helps with my husband's allergies. I have owned rescue dogs and cats and pure breeds. Pure breeds are always more susceptible to health issues. It's the downside to breeding. You take the good with the bad. With rescues, once you get past initial health needs, a mix breed is almost always healthier. Plus, you have saved a life. I only know Paula, but what I know of this breeder, she is good and kind and responsible. Money and breeding will not buy perfection. Get over it.

Thank you so much for your comment. However, I’m not a part of Texas Rexes. My cattery is Rexes R Us

Texas Rexes

I would pay 3 times their prices before I’d ever purchase from this breeder! Poor customer service, poor quality photos of kittens, very pushy. The mood changed the second my deposit arrived. Breeder rubbed me the wrong way, and was rude so asked for a refund, then breeder stalked my social media, commented rudely and picking a fight on anything i posted on Facebook, publicly posted bad about me on their Facebook page. Completely unacceptable behavior for a business. Again, I’d pay triple before i gave them a penny!

I know them and have been to both of their houses before I bought a baby, the only way these people would be rude, is if the client gave them a reason to be. They are protective of their babies, are wonderful to work with and won't sell them to anyone they dont think will give them a good home.

They are extremely knowledgeable about the breed and take excellent care of their cats and kittens, plus they also have several vet references, I know because I've asked for them and personally spoke to two of their veterinarians. As for fb, Ive followed their page and they never down on anyone, their fb is nothing short of %100 positive about the breed and people they deal with.

The breeder obviously didn't trust you with one of their babies.

We got our Cornish Rex baby from Texas Rexes in December of 2017. We are very pleased with our healthy kitten and our dealings with this breeder. Kitten was very well socialized and we would not hesitate to get another kitten from them.

I have gotten 2 beautiful cats from Rhonda. She is sweet, helpful, and very knowledgeable about the breed. I would definitely buy another Rex from her

DO NOT get a cat/kitten from TEXAS REXES

I have had the great displeasure of purchasing two cats from Rhonda at Texas Rexes. Not only did both of my cats test positive for worms (when first bringing them home) they both have little to NO curl in their coats. She says they offer a health guarantee but it is not in writing. They over breed all of their cats and are just looking to turn a profit. It is sad that this breed of cat is already going down this path. Skip texas rexes and rexes r us. The lady who is now breeding the rexes r us cats used to breed together. Look else where for a healthy cat!

Maybe my opinion doesn't count as much because I haven't yet gotten a cat from Texas Rexes. However, I went to my first cat show the other day, and met Rhonda and the two Cornish kittens she had brought.

I believe both placed well, and they were amazingly sweet and loving. We talked about her price (which is indeed INCREDIBLY reasonable), and the fact that she doesn't charge much because she does this for the promotion of the breed. Both kittens had lovely fur. (My only surprise at meeting them was that my research didn't show me how TINY Cornish Rexes are!) She was extremely kind to me, even though I explained to her that it will be a couple of years before I'll be able to get a kitten from her (or anyone else).

As for the breeder vs.

rescue war, I realize it's very bitter, but it's also very complicated. Every animal I have EVER had has been a rescue (and that is a lot of animals, through the years), and though I had planned a few years ago to get a particular breed of dog, I ended up getting another rescue instead. So I understand the importance of rescuing abandoned or otherwise unwanted animals. On the other hand, reputable breeders are NOT in it for the money; they are in it because they value the preservation of whichever breed they devote themselves to.

And THAT IS THE ARGUMENT - whether to support the preservation of the breed or to go with a rescue that needs a home. There are many, many strong opinions on both sides. The thing that really irritates me, though, is someone labeling someone's breeding program a "puppy mill" or "kitty mill," simply because they disagree with the idea of breeders, period. It is UNFAIR to label ANY breeder this way without doing your research, when your problem is with breeding purebreds instead of going the way of rescue animals.

Just because someone is doing something you don't like doesn't mean they aren't doing it the right way. These accusations don't help the rescue-animal cause; they simply hurt people who ARE reputable breeders and not "low lifes".

I adopted a cat from a local animal shelter that I suspect has a lung fungus and even though she is not showing symtoms of the fungus, she can shed it in her ***...my Cornish Rex just died from a lung fungus that I suspect he contacted from this rescue. NO MORE RESCUES!!!!

My rescue dog died of cancer!!! I will go to cat breeders to pick out my next companion; not Rhonda, of TexasRexas, my vet told me to stay away from her.

#1163420

so what if the curls arnt as curly as breed standard. adopt a cat and give it a good home.

just love the little darlings or pay the high price and get yourself a show quality cat, if looks are really that important to you :( we adopted 8 Cornish Rex cats from animal shelter at shelter price, very affectionate . two of our adopted CORNISH Rex cats are deaf, and one REX ONLY HAS ONE EYE.

YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF SO FOCUSED ON LOOKS. SHAME ON YOU!!!...

I would love to rescue a Rex from a shelter! Where is there a shelter who would have Rex’s?

#1129353

It is people like you that keep these catteries and dog breeders in business. If you would go to the rescues or shelters to get pets, these people would have to stop.

So getting mad because they do not have "curly hair" seems absolutely ridiculous! I blame people like you for these low lives in business.

Agree with the above poster. We too had a bad experience with Texas Rexes.

It's sad to see this majestic, unique breed taking a downward spiral in the hands of these "Kitty Mill" operations. .

Similarly, we also had a friend who purchased from Rexes R Us and encountered a multitude of health issues with their kitten. Devastating to see a family fall head over heels in love with a new family pet only to be confronted with serious and expensive health issues.

Agree. We have a beautiful Rex from Rhonda.

The coolest cat I have ever seem. Awesome personality.

Loves the dog and the grandkids. I will go to Rhonda first when the dog passes and the kitty needs a playmate.
