Associations: Devon Rex are accepted in all USA/Canadian cat registries.
About The Devon Rex The Devon Rex has large ears and bright eyes give the impression of a feline elf or pixie. They look delicate, but they're sturdy, medium-sized cats available in many colors and patterns. Their soft, curly coats can range from thick to sparse; light coated Devons may need more attention due to possible skin issues or excess coat oil.
Many Devons enjoy riding their people's shoulders, thriving on the attention and the nearness to their favorites. They prefer to have the company of both humans and pets of their own activity level as playmates.
Devon Rex are not hypoallergenic, but some people with mild allergies can tolerate them better than other breeds. They are minimal shedders but still produce some dander.
Did You Know? Although both breeds originated in England about ten years apart from one another, Devon Rex and Cornish Rex are not related. The genes for the curly hair are different and the breeds' builds are not at all the same.
