The beginning of
The pointed Ural Rex was supposedly extinct,
although the standard allows it. But the German URX
breeders did not want to give up on this beautiful
pattern. They applied for an outcross mating to Neva
Masquarade. The type of the Neva’s comes close to
the Ural Rex. The Siberian origin of both breeds
should be accountable for that.
The Neva was therefor the best suitable breed for
this plan. The German breeders received permission
for this experimental breeding.
One of the breeders (Sabine
cattery Vogtlandpfötchen's) started with the experiment and
nine weeks later, she got a huge surprise. A litter
of four kittens were born. One tortie
(Agathe) and three
“white” kittens. White was genetically impossible,
so they had to be pointed. And they turned out to be
so. One male (Albert) was seal point, one male
(Alfred) was red point
and the female (Adele) was cream point. All were hybrids.
With this outcome it was proven that the imported
Russian stud, Amur Runo Urala, was a carrier of the
pointed gene. This stud lives in Germany since 2011
and has never shown his little secret until this
experimental breeding. A DNA test confirmed that his
son, Ch. Iset’s Supurr Editchka, is also a carrier
of this trade. For sure there will be more offspring
that are point carriers.
Bottom line: in the future we will also have pointed
Ural Rex again. What a great surprise. And, the Ural
Rex does not have to be outcrossed to the Siberian
And the first
URX-point was born in 2015. The little boy

In St. Petersburg the Si-URX is bred
Breeder is Galina
Ivanova, cattery "Parnas".
We do not compare this cats to the
pointed Ural Rex from Germany. Both type and origin
are different. The Si-URX from St. Petersburg are
very Oriental in looks.
We distinguish: Point-Ural-Rex are the cats from
Germany and Si-URX are the cats from St. Petersburg.
