The Devon has very shallow, wavy fur. There is usually a greater amount of hair on the back and ears. Its fur is fine, soft and short and some specimens only have down on the abdomen. Hair growth is slow and all colors and patterns are allowed, with or without the presence of white.
The Devon Rex would definitely prefer the warmth of its bed to being in a cold place. He loves heat and you will certainly find him in the sun, on top of the fridge, notebook or even near the television to enjoy that warm one. Therefore, it is not so recommended to have it in colder cities and, when it gets cold, offer warm clothes and a fluffy blanket. Brushing their coat with brushes and a slicker is not recommended. Use a glove with rubber bristles to remove excess hair. This kitten usually needs baths, as it ends up accumulating excess oil on the skin, however, it is very important that you consult a veterinarian before including bathing in your pet's routine, as it can be a very stressful event. A problem faced by the breed is the accumulation of wax in the ear, requiring more frequent cleaning. A good diet, periodic consultations with the veterinarian, worming and vaccination up to date are extremely important to keep your Devon healthy.
