This is our 3 year old Grandchild with our Stud cat Taygan
You want GREAT PERSONALITY in your Devon kitten/cat Most of ALL.
Here are some examples of the Pitfalls and the Sucesses of purchasing Devons:
Ask your Breeder of the Kitten that you want to purchase,
about a health Guarantee. Good Breeders back purchases of any Genetic defects (Breeders might not know their line carries
a trait until a kitten comes up with one, especially if it is a Genetic recessive trait) Also; general health, if when you
get the kitten home, your kitten is unhealthy, what will they do for you? Any problems that you have MUST be backed by a Veternarian's
diagnosis sent from the Vet to the Breeder!! Be sure within the First week to take the kitten to the Vet for a Veternarian
Check (some Breeders require within 72 hours)
I just wanted you to know that we picked up the kitten last night and love him to death already! He is such a charmer
and good natured cat.
I just e-mailed BJ about our learning experiences with litter boxes and the "reach" of a cat. Nothing is out of
their reach! Jeff, the girls and I are learning, sometimes slowly, but we're learning.
We couldn't have asked for a better cat. He's already relating to all of us, including our dog. That relationship
will take a bit to nurture, but we're letting that happen naturally. This morning he spent on my daughter's lap, curled
up and sleeping. My daughter was in heaven. Waiting 4 years really paid off for her.
The girls named him "Spot". There was no talking them out of it, so it will be Spot!
Thanks again for all the information and contacts. The Devon Rex is a wonderful breed and I can tell that just
from one night with the little guy!
Thanks from the entire Ruedinger Family!
This is from people that received a special needs kitty from me. He was a blue eyed deaf boy. (the only kitten
I have ever had that was deaf. (these words were from two different posts of hers:
Maybe I'll write a book about him someday????
Anyway, I bet you hear these stories
from everyone and they are probably all the same. Mushy stories about how their
baby is the smartest, cutest, bravest, etc., the only difference with ours is, is that Thumper really is all those things
and more! His hearing loss is not a disability for him, its an advantage for
him and he takes full advantage of it! Oh, to only sleep like he does!!
I just cant
believe how much we love Thumper. And he thinks he is a special half humanhalf cat. He has to drink out of a glass,
and he lets you know when it needs to be tilted more. Its hard to explain. He gets me up in the middle of the night when the other kitties are hungry. He sleeps under the covers with me. He knows everything that
goes on in this house and immediately identifies anything new. Plus hes our watch
cat. Hes truly amazing! Hes simply gifted and is so loving with the little
throwaways we find. Although this last one started to nurse him and he didnt
really go for that.
I still cant thank you enough for bringing him into our lives.
devoted fans in South Texas,
Maureen & Thumper
Here are some suggestions that we Breeders have for you: Feed the Kitten what we recommend
for its transition into your home (some of us will send along food for this)
Please don't expose the kitten to other
cat/kittens right away, as kittens do not have fully developed immune systems. (Breeders will help you with their experience
about how to make this transition) this can help make you and the kitten happy
Do not buy a kitten that is not weaned
properly, is too young, or does not have all of its shots
Ask for REFERENCES from past buyers EXample: Have People come Back for another kitten
from the same Seller???
Here is a reference from one of my Kitten buyers: (this was an older Kitten)
Hi Sheila. Just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for choosing such
a wonderful kitten for me. He is just
the sweetest cat I have ever known
and we all love him already. He is such a loving kitty, always wanting to
our laps and snuggling against our cheek and purring. He is just the
best. He is going to work out very well with our
family and the kids love
him so much already. Me too! Thanks again for letting me have him....we
have finally decided
on the name Snickers.
