The Oregon Rex was one of several breeds of domestic cat with the rex coat variation, which in the mid-20th-century occurred from spontaneous genetic mutation. After its acknowledgment as a separate breed, it enjoyed a short time of popularity among cat breeders in the United States. By now, due to crossbreeding with other Rex types, this breed seems to have merged with the other more popular Rex breeds like Devon Rex or Cornish Rex.
