Even tough they look a bit weird due to their short hair, the Devon Rex Cat is not bold. It originates from the same breeder that created the Cornish Rex Cat and it is the result of a mutation that occurred during the creation of that species. The Devon Rex Cat has a shorter hair then the Cornish Rex Cat and it was recognized as a breed 10 years after more exactly in 1970 in Great Britain and in 1979 it was recognized as well in North America.

There doesn’t pass a moment when these cat doesn’t either jump in your lap or grab something to play with. Be careful what you let laying around since the Devon Rex Cat will not hesitate in playing with your sox or with your curtains. Since they have such an energetic spirit they should be played with a lot and they shouldn’t be left at home with the window or door open since they are really curious and they might hurt themselves trying to chase birds or insects.
The fur of the Devon Rex Cat is curly and short but not as curly as the Cornish Rex Cat. The body is bowed and thin, giving it an elastic and athletic look but still being better made then the one of the Cornish Rex Cat. The legs and the tail are long and thin further increasing the sensation that he was breed for acrobatic purposes. The Devon Rex Cat head is nicely rounded and not to big. The ears are long and straight and the muzzle is elongated with a prominent jaw and the almond eyes are nicely spread from each other.
