Devon Rex

The Devon Rex is a rare cat breed that can easily be distinguished from others thanks to its appearance. It was bred to have a flat skull shape with extremely large protruding ears and very big eyes. Whilst initial reaction to the Devon Rex was lukewarm, it later gained approval due to its very special physical features. Since 1968, these special cats with an unusual appearance have been recognised by the “Féderation Internationale Féline” (FiFe). Because of its pleasant character, the Devon Rex is a typical family cat and is also very well suited for being kept in an apartment. Perhaps you will soon make one part of your own home? 

Since the 20th century we have managed to create a large number of new breeds of cats by breeding the original domestic cat with other wildcat breeds. Other breeds are the result of continuously breeding cats that have a spontaneously occurring mutation. However, unlike dog breeds, different breeds of cats are much more similar in their size and look. This is because dogs have a variety of different functions, whereas cats only have two main functions: hunting and being an adorable pet!
