Bohemian Rex is a little known breed, was never furthered and founded in the Czech Republic. I was lucky to find such a good photo. As you can see it is a traditional but curly Persian. It was discovered in 1981 in Liberac... Breeders did not recognise the mutation to be a new variation until 1994 after several breeders found curly coated kittens appearing in their litters....The kittens parentage was traced back to a pair of blue Persians imported into the Czech Republic from Germany. It has never been ascertained whether the rex gene in the Bohemian Rex has evolved from the Persians from Germany being used with the German Rex breeding programme in the 1970s or whether it is a spontaneous rex gene.Whichever way the curly coated kittens that were born to the Persians have a recessive curly gene as the parents were both straight haired.
It may have been the recessive gene or just the lack of breeder interest that caused this breed to fail, however their is now renewed interest due to the popularity of the Selkirk Rex.Penny :D
