History

Franklin Whittenburg discovered the breed when a normal stray cat came into his life. He called his new pet Satin Surprise, and it gave him a real surprise.

Soon she gave birth to a litter of beautiful kittens, pero dos tenían un aspecto muy diferente. Two red kittens were born with him curly hair, y parecían tener un brillo en el pelaje. El brillo no se podía lavar de los gatitos, and the shine of the kittens gave the fur a satin look.

Franklin nunca había criado gatos, pero sabía que había algo único en los gatitos. Se puso en contacto con algún criador de gatos, with a cat geneticist, with the TICA and with some breeders about their kittens. After a lot of work and research, se llegó a la conclusión de que estos gatitos tenían un recessive gene único que provocaba no sólo un pelaje rizado, but also the satin effect of the hair.

The race Tennessee Rex había comenzado y un nuevo y hermoso gato se sumaba a la moda.
