German Rex History history

German Rex is a breed of cat that began with the male cat Munk, in 1930-31 in Königsberg, in what was then East Prussia, Germany . Munk was the son of an Angora cat and a Russian Blue. There were two other curly brothers in the litter, but they were castrated early. Munk spread his genes plentifully through the town's beautiful lady cats, but for his owner his value was as himself, not for his curly coat.

In the summer of 1951, a doctor, Dr Rose Scheur-Karpin noticed in the hospital garden a black, curly coated, cat. The clinic's personnel told her that they had known the cat since 1947. The doctor named the cat Lämmchen (German for little lamb). Her supposition that she must be the result of a mutation, was shown to be correct. Thus Lämmchen was the first breeder-owned rex type cat and the maternal ancestor of all the current German Rex.
