Life with a Devon Rex is never dull! I've had my guys for almost 2 years, and they have probably been the most sleep deprived, home wrecked but funniest years of my life! They really do live up to their reputation as monkeys in cat suits!!
If you're considering getting a Rex, I strongly recommend getting two, or have another animal like a dog at home to keep them company as they do not cope well with being left alone and are very easily bored!
They're not for someone wanting an easy going, independent cat as they do demand a lot of attention and need to be played with daily. They also have a funny habit of getting into EVERYTHING! I have basically had to child lock my fridge and cupboards.
Due to their thin coats and over friendly personalities, Devon Rexes should be kept indoors and only let out when supervised. I taught mine to walk on a harness so we go out exploring together at weekends which they love. During the day time when they're left at home, I leave them toys to play with and we have a good play session when I get home in the evenings too.
Despite being a high energy breed, they are the funniest, most loyal and cuddly cats I have ever met. They are fearless, cheeky and have a fantastic sense of humor, they make me laugh every day without fail. So if you're after a constant companion, who will play all day and snuggle up under the covers with you at night, look no further than a Rex!
