The Devon rex is an active, energetic breed. Truly a little clown that will delight by giving enchanting playful performances. For this, of course, the Devon expects to be thanked with loving attention and will return affection with purring. The Devon rex has an unusual appearance. The head is triangular and the nose appears to change direction right below the eyes. The eyes are large and the ears are extremely large, set low on the head with a wide base. These butterfly ears, along with the other distinct facial features, give the breed a look like that of a pixie or elf.
