Informations about the Devon Rex
The characteristic head and profil of a Devon
Their coats sometimes are described as looking like a Persian lamb coat, but also may look more like the tousled curls of Little Orphan Annie.
Devon Rex is a breed of unique appearance. Its large eyes, short muzzle,
prominent cheekbones, and huge, low-set ears create a characteristic
elfin look. A cat of medium fine frame, the Devon is well covered with
soft, wavy fur; the fur is of a distinctive texture, as the mutation
causes its wavy coat. The first cat of this type was found 1962 in Devon
/ England. It was a boy called Kirlee.
It is a cat with a very people oriented disposition. They love to be with you, and to 'help' you do all sorts of activities, from reading to cleaning the house. If you are seated, you will generally have a Devon in your lap. If you are standing, you may have one on your shoulder, if you are lying down, you will generally have one keeping you company. They love to sleep close to each other and they are friend with other animals too. Many Devons learn tricks! Lots of them will fetch toys and are so obsessive about the game that you will tire before they do.
