The Devon Rex is a breed of cat with a curly, very soft short coat similar to that of the Cornish Rex.
They are often thought of as one of the most hypoallergenic cats available because of their type of coat.
The first Devon was discovered by Beryl Cox in Buckfastleigh, Devon, UK, in 1959.
The typical Devon is active, mischievous, playful, and very people-orientated.
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").
Most Devons also have one central person to whom they devote their love, and on whom they will most often lie and rub.
They like to playfully nip, and love to play throughout their lives.
