Devon Rex

Devon Rex is a highly intelligent, unique-looking cat breed, known for its wavy coat and large ears. They have large eyes, prominent cheekbones and a short muzzle.

Their silky, wavy coat comes in a number of colour variations, including colourpoint, solid, shaded, tortoiseshell, calico, bi-colour, harlequin, smoke and tabby, though all colours are accepted. Their eyes come in all colours and variations as well.

The Devon Rex is a relatively small cat, with males weighing in at 3 – 4 kg while females weigh between 2 and 3 kg. Their lifespan is 9 – 13 years.

                      Personality and Temperament
The Devon Rex is an incredibly intelligent breed of cat, and is known for being playful and active – some have even referred to it as “a monkey in a cat suit”. They love to jump, so it might be a good idea to hide any breakables somewhere the cat can’t get to.

Unlike many cat breeds, the Devon Rex is highly trainable and can be taught how to walk on a leash, play fetch, and learn tricks such as sit and jump – much like a dog.

The Devon Rex is also known for being very affectionate – they love to be around their owners and can even be seen on the shoulders of their loved ones. They are attentive and sociable and are happy to follow their family around the house as they go about their day.

                         Devon Rex History
The quirky Devon Rex is the product of a natural genetic mutation, not cross breeding like many other domestic cats. The only human intervention was careful breeding to ensure this specific genetic mutation survived once it was found.

The first cat ever found with this mutation was a kitten called Kirlee who was born in Devon in 1959. There isn’t too much known about Kirlee’s specific heritage, but it’s believed that his parents were a stray cat and a tom with a curly coat. Their mating produced a litter which had one unique curly haired kitten that stood out from the rest.

Kirlee, who had a resemblance both physically and genetically to the Cornish Rex, became the progenitor of the now popular Devon Rex cat breed which was so named after its country of origin and the rex rabbit which has a similar coat.

The Devon Rex cat has a unique appearance which is often referred to as being like a pixie or an elf. This is on account of their long skinny neck, wedge shaped head, high cheekbones and large ears which are set low on the head.

The Devon Rex has a wavy coat that is absent of harsh guard hair and is especially thick in certain areas of its body like the back, tail, legs and sides. Some will have a coat of loose, shaggy curls whilst others can be thin and suede-like and it can come in any genetically possible colour and pattern.
It first made its way to the US in 1968 and was officially recognised by the Cat Fanciers Association in 1979. As of 2013, the Devon Rex is the 10th most popular breed in the US.
