Extended Family

Here are a few Boskas and friends:

My personal cats, CH, GP Quails Nest Blue Nerissa (aka Nerissa aka Nerissa-Cat) and CH Boska Gravity’s Rainbow (aka Pinchy)

Nerissa, born on January 5, 2000, was my first Cornish Rex. She had a huge personality wrapped up in a five pound bundle of energy and purrs.  Nerissa passed away at age 17 1/2.  We miss her more than can be expressed.

Affectionate and playful, Pinchy kneads us and licks our faces. She loves to dive bomb people from her perches on top of the kitchen cabinets. She’s a true shoulder monkey:


GC Quails Nest Pumpkin Spice Martini of Boska (aka Spicy)

Spicy is a sweet, active tortoiseshell smoke.  She loves to play fetch, jump, run and flip.

She is enjoying her retirement from showing in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Her humans have installed shelves to climb and perches to top for her enjoyment.

CH PR Boska Perfect Kiss (aka PK)

PK was the only kitten in his litter so he was spoiled with attention from his mom and from us. He was shown as a kitten and young adult. He’s now retired from the show life, enjoying the attentions of a family and a dog. PK loves to lick faces and jump into the arms of people.

Boska Rififi (aka Lucy)

Lucy is an extremely friendly, outgoing, affectionate and playful tortoiseshell Cornish Rex. She loves to be rocked like a baby and fall asleep in a lap. Active and intelligent, her favorite games are fetch and “climb to the sky”. She now happily lives with her family and dog friend in Southern California.

Grand Champion, Regional Winner, Boska 24 Hour Party (aka Pipsy) & Grand Premier Boska All Tomorrow’s Parties(aka Kali)


Pipsy (left) is a super-energetic girl that loved to show almost as much as she loves to play. She has retired from showing so can focus on being a beloved trouble-monkey to a humble human servant.

Kali is a super-sweet, adorable brown patched classic tabby and white. Like her sister Pipsy, she’s retired from showing. She’s affectionate, sweet and playful. She loves to keep her humans and other cats company. Here she is cuddling with her long-haird buddy Benjamin. With his size and coat, he makes an excellent heated cat bed!

GC GP RW Boska Infinite Jest (aka Rerun) & GC RW Kissing Time of Boska (aka Kissy III)

Rerun is enjoying her retirement from breeding and showing. She loves chasing around her Cornish buddy

Kissy III, Black Smoke Cornish Rex Female

Kissy and snuggling on her person’s heated waterbed. Kissy, also in retirement from showing and breeding, is incredibly so sweet, smart, affectionate and playful.  They both are beyond well-loved and spoiled.

Rerun is tortoiseshell and white.
