The gene responsible for curly fur is dominant, What can establish a broad gene pool and, at the same time, create rex cats. This breed is provisionally accepted in records around the world, the crosses are allowed in without pedigree cats, and in Great Britain, in several basically Oriental breeds.

This was the first long-haired rex breed and has managed to have a significant recognition. Other examples of long-haired rex registered are mutations of established breeds, as the bohemian rex, a variant of the Persian, or the maine wave, a variant of the maine coon. They have failed their acceptance in the field of politics nor in the health.
