Particularly intelligent, affectionate and fearless cats, Rexes have strong personalities, characterized by great independence of spirit. They are hardy, agile, and have a great sense of fun. A Rex enjoys its own company but can get on very well with other cats. However, it loves people and does not like to be left on its own for long. It is good natured, can be taught to walk on a lead, and is a good traveller. The Devon is particularly playful with a devilish sense of humour, and it is said to wag its tail like a dog when pleased. An outgoing and enterprising breed which make excellent pets for the whole family. Their fur tends to be low-allergenic, so they can often be tolerated by asthmatics & others who react adversely to cats.
