Short description

Characteristic for the Devon Rex cat is her wavy, curly coat and her big ears. She is curious and feisty, loves to cuddle and play. However, she does not like to be left alone. She likes to climb and is very adventurous. As she likes to be mentally challenged, she loves to learn new tricks.
