Devon Rex is a breed of intelligent, short-haired feline that emerged in England during the 1960s. They are known for their slender bodies, wavy coat, large ears and hypoallergenic fur. This breed of cat is capable of learning difficult tricks, they are even known to recognize their owner’s name, just as they do their own.
The typical Devon is active, mischievous, playful, and very people-oriented. They have been described as a cross between a cat, a dog and a monkey (or, more famously, as “a monkey in a cat suit”). They are high-jumpers and will try to occupy any space large enough to admit them. With this trait, they are often found in odd nooks and crannies of a closet, shelf, or laundry basket.
