    I know these cats are not ugly but they are definitely unusual looking. They have a very loving temperment and a regal nature. They are so warm and they are curious and into just about everything and they love their humans. I think this is a great breed and am just crazy about them. I love their funny little meow and they are so expressive. Unusual looking yes - ugly - no way.

I think my Cornish rex has more bald spots right now than before, has this ever happen to you? do you know the cause?

    My vet told me that due to the fact that rexs are missing that extra layer of fur, when they go through normal shedding cycles, it is much more noticeable to us. Wait and see if it doesn't grow back in. My newest rex was practically bald as a kitten, then had fur, and as he ages, seems to be going back to the sphynx look, with a mohawk across his back. Odd, but cute. I feed him the best so guess it's just his pattern.

Our little Devon Rex is just 7 months old now. She fits right in with our 4 dogs, 2 other cats, and 6 grandchildren. I wanted a kitten that didn't shed much and researched personalities and care before choosing this breed. Our 'Sugar' is our joy! She is unlike any other cat we've ever had. She is friendly with all, but strongly bonded to me as she sleeps cuddled up to me every night. I have a lung disease and have to take medicine early in the morning and wait an hour before breakfast. My cat wakes me up to take it and then she nuzzles my neck as we go back to sleep. My husband wants his 'own' devon and we plan to breed her in the summer before we spay her. I just hope we can bring ourselves to part with some of the kittens!

    Skin problems are most often related to diet in this breed. A deficiency in vitamin E can cause eczema, rashes, and even hair loss. Some Cornish Rex Cats also need regular bathing. Cats have normal oily secretions on their skin. Like all cats, the Rex can get a buildup of sebaceous secretions, but its hair is too short to absorb them as with ordinary cats. It can make the coat look greasy and can cause skin problems. The amount of bathing varies with each individual, some need a weekly bath while other can go for months in between baths. Hope this helps.

We have two Devons (boy & girl - siblings) and I honestly don't know why anyone would want any other type/breed of cat, dog (or animal for that matter). They're amazing. The cutest, most loving animals I've ever come across. We absolutely adore ours. They are naughty - kitty in monkey's clothing is right, but that's part of their appeal and I defy anyone to get even slightly annoyed with something jumping on your table that's that cute! They are VERY smart...so they know exactly what they're not allowed to do (whether they care is another question:). I was always a dog person & now I honestly can't explain why. These guys are awesome. Besides not having to potty train or bath them constantly, they're just as loving & human oriented. The boy especially (although the girl is super smoochy also). He's a lap slut lol If you even half-sit down, he's on it, hanging around your waist if you haven't quite got there. And he gets so smoochy sometimes, he properly hugs you (paws around/nuzzling into your neck). Also loves visitors (more laps to sit on). The girl (who's the most beautiful creature I have ever seen - white with chocolate points, she looks like a little curly-haired mini-sheep & has a coat softer than angora) loves my husband. Follows him around like a love sick teenager, meowing at him until he picks her up. Oh - and they also fetch & love paddling in water (in the sink) :-) They're cats - how brilliant is that?!!

We have two Devon boys both brothers, but so different in their natures. One loves to be with you in the toilet, cooking, washing and in your bed. The other brother wants to be outside all the time and cries till you let him out. Which could be 2am or 4am!!! They love to talk to you. My children think it is funny. They expect their food to be there in the morning when they get up, if it's not there they will come looking for you to ask why it's not there for them. Then they jump at you to make you get their food. They are fussy eaters only like tuna. One loves raw meat and the other cooked meat. It's funny they are like chalk and cheese. The one boy loves to get into our bed and sleep under the quilt, the other cat loves to be with my 11 yr old daughter he just loves her(that's the one who likes to be outside) they sleep together, he has his head on her pillow and his body under the quilt. The one who loves to be inside loves to give you love bites on your hand or cheek and gives us smooches at 2am!!! There is so much I could write about them, great family cat if you have kids, we have 4 so they get lots of attention.

ROSIE - 2008-04-06
I have two Scottish Folds who are brothers. They are both neutered. One of them has the folded-ear gene (Milan), and the other has normal ears (Lenny). They are extremely sweet and playful. Lenny is a lot more "hyper" and active than Milan. Sometimes Lenny bullies Milan, which makes me sad, but for the most part they get along well. They will play together and take naps together. Getting two littermates was the best decision I have ever made because they keep each other company while I'm at work. They are both pretty needy and require a lot of affection and time with their human. My only problem is that Milan has the stiff back as a result of faulty breeding. I bought them from a breeder who was a retired veterinarian, but I guess that doesn't guarantee quality breeding stock. They cost A LOT of money, but they are the sweetest guys ever. I highly recommend the Scottish Fold breed.

    It doesn't matter how much they cost , they're worth it!
  • Catherine - 2012-05-04
    I'm thinking about getting myself a fold quite soon. I was just wondering why do you say they cost a lot of money.
  • linda - 2012-05-21
    there are sadly some people that dont take breeding seriously, and a breed like scottish fold are only for people who realy care for their health, only using the healthiest cats in mating and NEVER uses fold on fold. here in norway there are about 16- 17 scottish folds in the country and all are very healthy:) and they will stay that way as long as we plan the mating carefully , and uses the best lines:) you should never buy a fold to a low price that is under the normal price, that can mean the kitten has bad lines. my breeding kitten from germany cost me 1200 euros pluss some money for the flight ticket. but l got 200 euroes diskount, because we were two from same country who wanted to buy;)

I've had my devon rex for 10 years now and "Tara" my rex still runs around and plays like you did when she was a kitten. She loves to go where I go and sleep under the covers. She is always there and always knows when I'm upset. I just don't know what I would have done without her these past 10 years.
