Welcome to KOSHKA. We are
situated in Melbourne, Australia, and have been breeding
Cornish Rex and
Russian Blue Cats for fourteen years. In recent years, Cornish Rex have been the
main focus of the breeding programme. We hope the information provided
in the following pages is useful and answers some often asked questions about this
wonderful breed of cat. Our main focus has centred on
producing healthy, genetically sound, well balanced, dense coated kittens. A
rex coat is of
prime importance in both show and pet cats.
An interactive, outgoing temperament is also essential. All KOSHKA
kittens are raised in the house to assist in the development of a well
balanced and trusting personality. This is important, not just for the
show bench, but essential for ensuring that each kitten adapts to,
and, becomes an integral and much loved member of the family it joins.
A number of our Cornish Rex
have been awarded the highly sought after titles of Cat or Kitten of
the Year, and every KOSHKA Cornish Rex cat or kitten exhibited at
local, national and international
Cat Shows, has
been awarded major titles that include, Supreme Exhibit in Show, Best
in Show, Best in Group and Best of Breed.
Take some time to meet the
Koshka cat family
and to visit the special KOSHKA info pages (buttons at the left) or
the links (below) to other Cat Sites, Breeders, lots
and humorous Funny Cat Pics.
Over time, we will endeavour to add a wide variety of interesting
links to provide information about Cornish Rex in particular, the
Russian Blue, cats in
general, and other items that may be of interest or assistance. We
will be updating regularly, please continue to visit.
