Coloring – Devons sport a variety of coats that range from the ideal full-rolling loose uneven wave through lessening degrees of density that support a tighter rippling effect all the way to a thin suede-like cover.
Eyes – Any eye color is acceptable (although colorpoints generally will have blue and minks generally will have aqua eyes).
Overall Appearance – The 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.
Personality – Devons love to play but their natural preference is to sit cozily in your lap. Devons are, above all else, people oriented. Their human companions are the focus of their boundless interest and love.
Interesting Breed Fact – In 1960 in Devonshire, England, a spontaneous mutation caused British barn cats to conjure up their own version of the ultimate feline pixie; hence the Devon Rex was born.
