I am new to Devon zone, and am thrilled to find such a fabulous forum to share with others who love Devon's as much as myself. We have waited quite some time to get our Devon Rex, which we appropriately named Gizmo. I really did want "Jinx" but my son thinks otherwise, so Gizmo has stayed.
I have a couple of questions and even though have googled, I get contradicting answers, so am unsure. Gizmo has very little hair, actually he is quite bald. Is he likely to develop a further coat? He will be 5 months old on the 6th of August.
I also would like to know what colour he is? He has fawny/cream coloured front paws, but looks like a red tabby in his tail and face. There is no colour to the rest of him (what fur there is), just a creamy colour. There is a photograph of Gizmo in my profile picture.
We have only had this precious boy for 3 weeks and he has settled in very well and is the most adorable cat, in every way possible. He loves using my leg as a scratching post though and I hope to get him out of that, as my poor legs are looking rather injured!
When he first arrived, we took him to the vet as he was sneezing :-( he had cat flu, which transferred to our other cat, Malinki who is a brown Burmese. Thankfully, Malinki has had all her vaccinations, but alas she still managed to pick up the virus and needed treatment. Now I am aware they have both had cat flu, it will be a reoccurring event when stressed. This saddens me.... and I am so disappointed to be sold a not well cat - but of course wouldn't swap him for the world.
