50-pictures-with-devon-rex-a-cute-short-hair-cat

The Devon Rex cat did not live among humans until 1960. The father of the Devon Rex cat was a wild, curly-furry cat that lived near abandoned mines near Deveonshire, England. He mated with a female that did not belong to any breed, resulting in a lot of kittens living in the garden of breeder Beryk Cox. One of the kittens, a black-brown cat named Kirlee, inherited the curly fur from his father, but its length was shorter.


1.


Animal breeders believe that the curly-haired cat and the female with whom it mated had a blood relationship, as the Devon Rex gene, which gives curly fur, is recessive and must be present in both parents to appear in offspring.


2.


At first, Kirlee was considered to be a Cornish Rex cat, but subsequent matings between Kirlee and cats of this breed resulted in straight-fried chicks. This was proof that Kirlee was part of a newly discovered race. The two races, Cornish Rex and Devon Rex, have nothing to do with each other.


3.


The Devon Rex cat has a unique appearance. Big eyes, a short nose, prominent cheekbones, curly mustache, and big, bent ears make Devon Rex look like a leprechaun. The feline is of medium size, even small, the females weighing 2-3 kg when they reach maturity, and the males 3-4 kilograms. Although it looks like a fragile cat, it is robust, agile and covered with muscle mass.


4.


A unique feature of the Devon Rex cat is the curly fur, which varies from one individual to another. Devon Rex cats have short, wavy fur, either falling in waves or forming small knots. The fur is soft and fluffy, but there are also some rebellious threads that spoil its uniformity. These rebellious threads are softer than the rest of the fur.


5.


The fur of the Devon Rex kittens grows several times during childhood, but the curly appearance is maintained even as an adult.


6.


The Devon Rex cat has fur in a variety of colors, presenting certain patterns such as: sharp, solid, erased, turtle shell, bi-color, harlequin, but also striped. Regardless of the colors of the fur, if the other characteristics are reached, the cat is recognized as part of the Devon Rex breed.


7.


The Devnon Rex cat needs little "maintenance". Occasionally, large ears should be cleaned. Otherwise, a simple bath and nail trimming are the only care activities the Devon Rex cat needs.


8.


Although the body temperature of this cat is the same as that of the other cats, the Devon Rex cat seems warmer to the touch, due to the shorter and rarer fur. For the same reason, these cats are always looking for warmth, they live better if they do not have access outside at all.


9.


The character of the Devon Rex cat is truly remarkable. She is alert and active and very curious about the things around her. They like to be surrounded by people and bring the objects they throw. She is also very agile and very inquisitive, wanting to explore every corner of the house.


10.


Devon Rex loves dogs and follows the people around her in every room, asking her to be involved in any activity. She prefers to sit on her shoulders, or in the arms of her masters, and if they are left out of an activity they will protest vehemently. Feline is intelligent, obsessively affectionate, loyal and fun.

50-pictures-with-himalayan-cat-the-fluffiest-creature-ever

This adorable breed of cat from England is the result of crossing a Siamese cat with a Persian cat. The distinctive sign of his face comes from the Siamese, and the fur and color is that of the Persian. Occasionally, it is called Persian. Some describe the Himalayan cat as an independent breed, while others consider it a special variant of the Persian cat.


1.


In the 1920s, cat breeder Virginia Cobb and a researcher at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Clyde Keeler, laid the groundwork for a new breeding program. Dr. Clyde Keeler investigated the gene responsible for color spots in cats.


2.


The purpose of the breeder and researcher was to raise a cat with the fur of a Persian and the blue color of the eyes and signs of a Siamese. This is how the Himalayan cat was born.


3.


The Himalayan purebred cat is medium to large in size and its body is short, which is called a cobby.


4.


The legs are short and wide, and the bones are quite strong and heavy. Himalayan cat skin is rather chubby. He has big legs, a wide chest and back. The weight of this unusual breed tends to be high: males weigh up to 10 kilograms, and females about 8 kilograms.


5.


The head of the Himalayan has a round shape. The nose has a characteristic mask (known as a dot) and is short and flat. The ears are small and round. The large, bright eyes are also round and quite separate.


6.


The hair is long, silky and has a dense overcoat. The Himalayan cat can be colored tortilla, seal dot and blue dot. The tail is strong and bushy and is in balance with the rest of the body. The Himalayas have hair as long as Persian cats and special marks (dots) on the face, ears, legs and tail like the Siamese.


7.


Some Himalayan fans call these flat-nosed cats dressed as Siamese dressed as Persian cats. Although the Himalayas are included in the Persian standard, its nature is similar to that of the Siamese. The character of the two breeds of cats with which the Himalayan cat was created differs greatly. Siamese give it a cheerful character, while the softness and comfort come from the Persian's personality.


8.


Himalayan cats show affection for the people they trust and the ones they want. So they are quite selective for who is worthy of their love. With those who have won their hearts, they are very affectionate and kind. In general, he is very close to his human companions. Remember that you should also entertain them with different cat toys. Noisy environments and homes where there is a lot of hassle do not like this sensitive mustache. Its nature requires a quiet environment with people who behave more quietly.


9.


Breeders and owners of this breed are satisfied with the nature of pets for cats, because they are distinguished by a soft, calm and balanced mood. Cats are very loyal to the owner, they like to be constantly by his side, especially on his knees, requiring affection and attention. But they can be jealous of the owner, not allowing people and other pets.


10.


Although they get along with other animals quite peacefully, loneliness is very poorly tolerated. You really feel the mood of the household, trying to adapt to it. These cats can be left safely with children, they will actively participate in games with the child, but due to their short legs and bushy body, jumping is not easy for them and they will not be able to jump up. Kittens can play fun even with plain paper. From an early age, these pets are obedient and unworthy.
