The subjects of the photos where specified are not all of the breeding Ciberex
GENERAL: the Devon Rex is a breed of unique appearance. Its large eyes, short muzzle, prominent cheekbones, and huge, low-set ears create a characteristic elfin look. A cat of medium fine frame, the Devon is well covered with soft, wavy fur; the fur is of a distinctive texture, as the mutation which causes its wavy coat is cultivated in no other breed. The Devon is alert and active and shows a lively interest in its surroundings.

HEAD: modified wedge. In the front view, the wedge is delineated by a narrowing series of three (3) distinct convex curves: outer edge of ear lobes, cheekbones, and whisker pads. Head to be broad but slightly longer than it is broad. Face to be full-cheeked with pronounced cheekbones and a whisker break. In profile, nose with a strongly marked stop; forehead curving back to a flat skull. Allowance to be made for stud jowls in the adult male.
MUZZLE: short, well-developed. Prominent whisker pads.
CHIN: strong, well-developed. In profile, chin shall line up vertically with nose, being neither undershot nor overshot.
EYES: large and wide set, oval in shape, and sloping towards outer edges of ears. Any eye color is acceptable, as no points are assigned to eye color (although colorpoints generally will have blue and minks generally will have aqua eyes).
EARS: strikingly large and set very low, very wide at the base, so that the outside base of ear extends beyond the line of the wedge. Tapering to rounded tops and well covered with fine fur. With or without earmuffs and/or ear-tip tufts.
BODY: hard and muscular, slender, and of medium length. Broad in chest and medium fine in boning, with medium fine but sturdy legs. Carried high on the legs with the hind legs somewhat longer than the front. Allowance to be made for larger size in males, as long as good proportions are maintained.
LEGS and PAWS: legs long and slim. Paws small and oval, with five toes in front and four GO BACK TO LIST.
TAIL: long, fine, and tapering, well covered with short fur.
NECK: medium long and slender.
COAT: Density: the cat is well covered with fur, with the greatest density occurring on the back, sides, tail, legs, face, and ears. Slightly less density is permitted on the top of head, neck, chest, and abdomen. Bare patches are a fault in kittens and a serious fault in adults; however the existence of down on the underparts of the body should not be misinterpreted as bareness. Sparse hair on the temples (forehead in front of the ears) is not a fault. Texture: the coat is soft, fine, full-bodied, and rexed (i.e., appearing to be without guard hairs). Length: the coat is short on the back, sides, upper legs, and tail. It is very short on the head, ears, neck, paws, chest, and abdomen. Kittens may have very short fur all over; even if not long enough to wave, it must cover the kitten evenly, so that no bare patches are evident. Waviness: a rippled wave effect should be apparent when the coat is smoothed with one's hand. The wave is most evident where the coat is the longest, on the body and tail.
PENALIZE: narrow, long, round or domestic-type head; extremely short muzzle; misaligned bite; small or high set ears; short, bare, or bushy tail; straight or shaggy coat; bare patches.
DISQUALIFY: extensive baldness, kinked or abnormal tail, incorrect number of toes, crossed eyes, weak hind legs. Any evidence of illness or poor health.

above the CFA Breed
after automatic translate from inseparabile.com
The first Devon nacque in 1960 from one the domestic gattina of propriet of
mrs. Beryl Cox in the Devon.
Kirlee, this the name given to the micetto, was all black,
with the goffered hair and of the great orecchie.
The father was probably a cat a po' strange who went around itself in the mines
of branch close to the room.
In that period the Cornish Rex gi was known and began first
successes in the selection of its race.
Mrs. Cox contatt one of the known devout breeders of Cornish:
Brian Stirling Webb the which, enthusiastic one to have an other cat with which
to continue its studies, was made to send Kirlee.
Fact came to couple with various gatte Cornish, but nacquero only puppys
with normal hair.
CAP therefore that the recessivi geniuses that caused the hair goffered in the Cornish
Rex and in Kirlee was not equal.
The geniuses came therefore differentiate to you:
if the gene of the Cornish called RexI,
that one of Kirlee came called Rex II.
The two breeds they came cos distinguished and raised separately.
One of the gattine been born with the normal hair, call Broughton Golden Rain came
made to couple with Kirlee.
Nacquero two gattini with the normal hair and one female blue-cream with the hair
goffered like Kirlee.
These first puppys gave to beginning allun breeding of the Devon Rex.
In 1967 in England the acknowledgment of the distinction between the two is had
breeds, the Devon Rex and the Cornish Rex.
The CFA recognized the Devon like single race to part in 1979
allowing of the championship to leave from 1983.
Laspetto of the devon rex tuttaltro that common.
And inusuale, strange and grotesque!
The short and curly, soft hair like the velvet.
Many think that the devon rex it does not have the hair.
This not absolutely true!!!
A devon rex adult it has a hair a lot folto, soft curl and. Only in i
puppys have some periods in which the hair little or nearly absent.
To approximately a ET year the fur it would have for being complete.
To the contact the body of devon rex devout the warmth of a common cat and transmits
immediately one particular feeling much and pleasant one.
The small head, with the orecchie enormous and placed many lowlands on the head,
the eyes great and ovals with one expression much intense one.
The musino short, with zigomi wide and a fort stop (that is the change of
direction of the nose to the congiungimento with the forehead).
It has the mento strongly, two beautiful ones portabaffi, the long and esile neck like that one of
All full load of rughette cos like the testolina in means to the orecchie.
And those moustaches goffer, short or nearly absent to you to times.
Laspetto that one of an averse delicious small.
C not to be astonished that Steven Spielberg has drawn inspiration
from a devon rex for its ET!
The body of the devon rex tiny,
with piedini round and the long tail.
The hair must cover all the body and form of the beautiful waves of soft hair.
In the complex sure laspetto not that one of a common cat, indeed!
What devout he hits are the enormous orecchie, the typical hunchback who
back of the devon assumes when seated and its small aspect to be
strange and delicate (what that in realt not absolutely).
The strange character still devout dellapetto, and also us of which i
owners innamorano without possibilit of escape! Or even issue than
habit I would not know!
Devon rex an eternal child, always voglioso of coccole and game.
They are these in fact its two attivit preferred, and both demand
presence of a human being; -) In the case in which these he was not available
third attivit preferred one of the devon rex becomes that one to annoy the companion
human, what in which skillful master like every owner of devon potr
to confirm to you!
But we analyze in the detail these 3 aspects:
All the devon rex do not have the same character exactly, otherwise
it would lack leffetto been strange; -)
There are devon that they would pass the day is made to coccolare, preferring them to
game and to the baby food!
Others that would play all the day.
Gi usually obvious characteristics to the third month of ET! The greater part
of the devon rex they have a continuous need of human contacts.
They cannot less make of and for this a cat absolutely inadatto to living
alone without at least the company of an other cat, in the case in which not
you are to house good part of the day. It holds to us to being integrating part
of the family and not chip ax of being excluded from nothing. The night sleeps
rigorously on the bed, still better if under blankets coiled up I lean
to its human companion.
If the lavished coccole are not considered sufficient nellarco of
day you expect of being waked up nellarco of the night from one ball of
soft hair that ago fused and that it threads the head under your hand.
But you do not take care yourselves, with lesperienza is learned also to sleep caress
one or + devon!
The words that for first come to me in mind are psychosis, paranoia and
For less what it comes to me every time in mind that step unora and
average launch the topino or they beat (that one with the piume in bottom) to i
Average Unora and of:
Lancio-Corsa Affannosa-Riporto-Struscino with look recognizing (or risentito
if not thrown again after 2 the second ones and mezzo)-ulterior launch.
And cos via for the following average hour and!!!
Unfortunately to see with how much enthusiasm, true joy and felicit yours devon
dedicher with engagement and dedication to this attivit to prevent you to stop to you
before the sure crisis of nerves that to appear to the thousandth launch; -)
For devon rex the nobody attivit, and I repeat nobody, pu to justify the fact
that YOU are not making it the coccole Or making to play. The ritorsioni are
You will be astonished of the infinite resources to which pu also giving to bottom a devon rex of
to annoy to you and to convince to you to leave what been making for dedicargli one
po of time!
Tried as an example to clean up house with a devon that it tries to eat the broom
while the muovete for earth or to make attention the zampina of the devon that it is
changing the trajectory of your fork or it takes a bath you in
deprived of hope hope that no devon is thrown to us within or it falls to us for mistake
while sporge curious (the puppys are particularly inclined!).
You will continuously ask yourselves perch to rifare the bed is equivalent to say they
boys all under the sheet or perch to go in kitchen are equivalent to say they
boys, eat themselves.
You will be asking but perch not to close it in unaltra room.
Perch urla to them heartbreaking of poor devon an innocent one (from its point of view)
closed in unaltra room while you (cruel beings) dedicated to yours
matters difficultly bearable for devout of 5 minuteren!
I forgot one characteristic peculiar about this race.
The always present hunger, continues, not to believe to the own eyes.
To never leave one full pot in nanny of the devon.
Even if the cover seems heavy will know to you to organize itself sooner or later and
contained sar they!
NEVER distrarvi while cooked.
To never impietosirsi in front of those faccini imploranti.
To never think that sure a devon it cannot find the tops appetizing of
turnip left on the sink sgocciolare!
The devon rex the effects are members of the family to all! They always participate
to all daily yours attivit, they converse with you, you hold company,
indeed much company, and has the great power to render your house
without warning various, + live, pleasant +! And the beautifulst feeling of
deeply to be loved and to be understood from a small alien from the enormous orecchie.
An essential aspect that an owner of devon must have? The patience; -)
But you are sure that you will be exchanges again to you and loved in sincere way, for all the life
