Acquired: Worked with pet (didn’t own)
Posted Jan 29, 2016
I partly own a business and it is a cat cafe here in the Philippines. For those who don't know, a cat cafe is like your usual coffee place but the only difference is that there's a separate room big enough to house lots of cats where customers can freely mingle and play with several cat breeds.
One of those cats is Luigi which is a Cornish Rex. He is the most active cat I've owned/worked with! She never runs out of energy, I mean literally! Red Bull runs through his veins! I like an active cat that's why Luigi is really close to my heart. Luigi is the type of Cornish Rex with very thin coat. This is the ideal cat to get if you live in warm places and you need to cover them with a blanket during the cold season or just adjust the air conditioning because this type of breed is very sensitive to cold. During cold nights, Luigi would find a warm place to sleep and that includes (but not limited to): near my laptop, near a television, against the kitchen wall where our stove leaning against, at the back of the fridge, etc.
Luigi is so active, the only way for you to stop him from running around is if you would carry him. Just look at the picture of me and Luigi.. so calm, so peaceful.. but once you release him, he would go rabid again haha. He is the first cat who would jump every time I pull out strings to play with them and when I'm done, he would bug other cats to play with him. Luigi's personality definitely adds life to the party!
By now you probably have an idea how active this breed could possibly be. If you are the type of person who likes more action and less maintenance, this is the cat to get!
