Rex is a race of cats. Rex is a medium-sized race with slim, medium-length feet. One of the cats is very kind and quickly connected with its owners. One of the early Rex cats from Germany was Kater Munk, a female of Erna Schneider's household, who was borne in 1930 or 1931 in a small town near Königsberg, Germany (now Kaliningrad, Russia).
He was the offspring of a mahogany and a blue munk. One ( (some springs say two) other curled cat(s) in the throw, which was neutered early. Up until his deaths in 1944 or 1945, Munk distributed his genetics abundantly in the cattery. Schneiders appreciated the heavy hangover with a preference for fishing from the fishpond of the familiy for himself, not for his hair. He was, it seems, commonly known as Preußig Rex.
Rex scientists do not consider Kater Munk to be related to the Rex breed in Germany and claim that he was never born. Doctors called the pussycat Lämmchen (German for "little lamb"). Their assumption that it must be the outcome of a change proved to be true. Lämmchen was the first breeding Rex cats and the motherly forefather of all modern day Rex cats in Germany.
Her first two German Rex were two Rex cats from a 1957 four-puppy kitten, descendants of lambs and her just finished boy Fridolin, whom she had adopted with a roaming Scheuer-Karpin-blackie. Lamb dies on December 19, 1964 or 1967, suggesting that she was very young when she was first seen in 1947.
It bequeathed a number of Rex and crosses - the last of their progeny was borne in 1962 - most of which were used to enhance other races, such as the Cornish Rex, who suffered from dermatological disorders because he is derived from poor thoroughbreds.
The line continued the GDR kennel's endeavours from the ground up in 1968, which bought the last 3 Rex lamb offsprings not bought abroad and extended the line with European Shorthair and Mongrel. Some years later the race gradually became richer. Schnurzel, the tomcat, finally made a contribution to German Rex farming; it is not known how he was related to lambs, but he was probably a grandchild of her, since Scheuer-Karpin let her kittens wander through the Buch woods and orchards.
Also in recent years, the genetical heritage of lambs has manifested itself, if not Munk, occasionally found in Berlin, e.g. Pumina, as a stray dog of Preuss from Siegburg, who appeared in 1979 in Siegburg in the Rhineland, does not seem to be related to a German Rex; it is almost certainly not related to lambs.
Nevertheless, his offspring may have made a contribution to today's Rex line in Germany. It' s not known how lambs deal with munk, only that the Rex-Mutation ( "on the same genes as Cornish Rex") is volatile, only if both of them are "Rex", and that Munk is the first extensively recorded Rex-cat, although as tales about "children snuggling curly-haired kittens"[quote required], Rex-alleles appear again and again.
Munk probably produced many progeny with native kittens, none of which would have had a curled coat, as the Munk' s straighthaired companion Allel would predominate. The Wikimedia Commons has mediums related to German Rex. Resurrection of the German Rex.
