AP Devon Rex Kitten
  • How will I get my kitten?
    Kittens are ready to go to their new home a few days after reaching 16 weeks old. Prior to leaving, they will have been spayed/neutered, de-wormed, microchipped with prepaid lifetime registration, and kept up to date on all age-appropriate core vaccines, including rabies. Once your kitten is ready to go to its forever home, we will initiate planning approximately two weeks in advance to arrange for pick-up or transportation. We offer worldwide shipping, but please note that shipping expenses are not included in the kitten's price, and the buyer is responsible for all shipping-related costs. For more information on our delivery methods, please refer to the "Shipping" section in the menus.

  • Will I get a health guarantee for my kitten?
    Yes, kittens at AP Devon Rex come with a two-year genetic health guarantee. Our priority is to maintain a clean and hygienic environment for our kittens, and we follow a rigorous daily cleaning and disinfection routine. To ensure the health of our breeding cats, they undergo genetic disease testing for FELV, FIV, HCM, and Optima. Additionally, our adult breeding cats receive annual health check-ups to ensure their overall well-being. We are committed to providing healthy and well-cared-for kittens to our clients.
  • Is Devon Rexes hypoallergenic?
    Contrary to popular belief, it is important to note that no cat is truly hypoallergenic. Devon Rex cats, although often considered to be one of the best cat breeds for people with allergies, are not hypoallergenic. Most people who are allergic to cats are sensitive to the proteins present in feline saliva and skin particles (dander), which can cause allergic reactions. However, the wavy coat of Devon Rex cats tends to shed less, which can help minimize the spread of dander and other allergens in the home. While they may be more suitable for individuals with allergies compared to other cat breeds, it's still crucial to recognize that individual sensitivities and allergies can vary. It is advisable to spend time with a Devon Rex cat before bringing one into your home to assess your personal reaction.
  • Are there genetic health problems common to Devon Rex?
    Yes, it is true that all pedigreed cats, including Devon Rex cats, have the potential to develop genetic health problems. One common genetic health issue in Devon Rex and Sphynx cats is Congenital myasthenic syndrome (CMS). This condition leads to muscle weakness and can manifest as ventroflexion of the head and neck, head bobbing, scapula protrusion, and generalized muscle weakness and fatigue. Symptoms typically appear between 3 to 23 weeks of age and may progress slowly or remain stable over time. Another genetic health problem seen in Devon Rex cats is Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD). This heritable condition causes the formation of cysts on the kidneys from birth, often leading to renal failure in later stages of the cat's life. It's important for breeders and owners of Devon Rex cats to be aware of these potential genetic health issues and take appropriate measures to minimize the risk. Regular veterinary check-ups and genetic testing can help identify and manage these conditions, promoting the overall health and well-being of the cats.
  • Can I declaw my kitten?
    No! Declawing is strictly against our cattery policy, and we do not permit or condone the declawing of kittens or cats. We believe in promoting the well-being and natural behaviors of our kittens, and declawing goes against these principles. We encourage responsible cat ownership and provide information on alternatives to declawing, such as proper scratching posts, nail trimming, and positive reinforcement training, to ensure the happiness and health of our kittens.
