Breed Breakdown – Devon Rex

BREED: Devon Rex

APPEARANCE: Fine boned, small to medium cats, very short, curly coat almost looks ripply or crinkly, large wide ears. Can come in almost any coat colour or pattern.

TEMPERAMENT: Intelligent, highly energetic, playful, active, prefers company either human or animal.

AVERAGE LIFE SPAN: 12-15 years

MAINTENANCE: Low maintenance although active. Their coats only shed a little, but their large ears do need regular cleaning.

SUITS: Suited more as an indoor cat as they don’t like the cold. Prefer a household where someone is home the majority of the time or they have another cat for company. They are generally ok around children.

INTERESTING FACT: The Devon Rex emerged in England during the 1960’s. Their unusual coat is caused by a gene mutation.
