Devon Rex Cat Breeds
The Devon Rex is small to medium in size and boasts having a well-muscled body and rather slim neck. They have short, broad, wedge-shaped heads with very pronounced cheekbones, strong muzzles and nice, firm chins. They have short noses with a very definite stop when seen in profile. Devons have distinct whiskers and eyebrows which are often referred to as being their “designer stubble”. This stubble is quite delicate and has a tendency to snap and break off. They have large ears that are set wide apart and low on a cat’s head which all adds to their pixie-like looks. Devons have oval-shaped eyes that can be of any colour.
As previously mentioned, they have slender necks and well-muscled bodies. Chest are broad and legs are long, slender with their back legs being slightly longer than their front ones. Paws are oval-shaped and small. The Devon has a long, tapering tail that well covered in short hair.
When it comes to their coat, the Devon Rex boasts having a short, dense, soft coat that consists of loose curls, ripples and waves that is extremely velvety to the touch. The ripples tend to be more pronounced on a cat’s back, their flanks and tails although their wrinkles can also go down their legs too. Their eyebrows and whiskers are moderately long and crinkled although because they often break off, these tend to be stubbly. Their coats can be just about any colour with or without any white markings and just about any sort of pattern.
