What is a Cornish Rex?

A Cornish Rex is an affectionate, people-oriented, active cat breed.


The most unique trait of the breed is its' incredibly soft, marcel waves.

It has an egg-shaped head with high cheekbones, a strongly bridged roman nose and large ears.

The body is similar to a Whippet - arched back, long legs and barrel chest.


This is a cat breed that actively and happily participates in family life.

We started showing in 2014, importing our lines from established catteries outside the USA.

Our goal is to produce healthy, socialized Cornish Rex kittens for our exhibitor program, and for loving pet homes.

All of our cats and kittens are registered and shown with CFA -

When are kittens ready for new homes?

Yarn Ball kittens stay with us until they are 16 weeks old. This is to ensure that they are healthy, and socialized by their mother and siblings.

When a litter is born, you will be contacted through the information you provided.

Do you spay or neuter?

Yes! All Yarn Ball cats and kittens going to pet homes will be spayed/neutered prior to going to their new families. A spayed/neutered cat or kitten is best for a pet home.

Do you allow declawing?

No! Yarn Ball Cattery is against declawing. All Yarn Ball cats and kittens going to their new families, sign an agreement that they will NOT declaw their new cat or kitten. No exceptions.
