Coby the Devon Rex

This handsome boy finds himself here after his owner had to move house and sadly couldn’t take him with her. He is friendly and enjoys a lap to sit when he’s in the mood. He does not like other cats so has found it difficult adjusting to life at the centre. As you see he’s a stunning Devon Rex, he is looking for a home with someone who has knowledge of the breed so they can meet all of his needs. This may require living as an indoor cat to protect his coat from the elements.

Coby is 6 years old

The Devon Rex coat is soft and silky

Devon Rex are friendly, extrovert, lively, playful and attention seeking. They need a warm place to sleep due to their type of coat.

If you are allergic to cat hair, a Devon Rex may be a suitable cat for you as they have little fur compared to most other types of cat.

The Devon Rex is a breed of intelligent, short-hair cat that emerged in England during the 1960s. They are known for their slender bodies, wavy coat, and large ears. These cats are capable of learning difficult tricks. They are even known to recognize their owner's name, just as they do their own.
The Devon Rex is a breed of cat with a curly, very soft short coat similar to that of the Cornish Rex. They are often associated with being one of the most hypo-allergenic cats available because of their type of coat. However, they are technically not hypoallergenic.

A few days ago, we gave Coby one of new toys from our Amazon wish list. A cat it 'Play & scratch' toy which he really enjoyed, especially as it comes with a small bag of catnip to sprinkle on to the cardboard scratch pad.

Coby really responds to catnip and proceeded to sniff it, eat it and play excitedly with his new toy.

Here's a short video of him on our You Tube page..

After he'd finished playing

If you are able to provide Coby with a suitable home, with no other cats, please come and meet him at the centre. You're sure to be charmed by this special cat.
