When it comes to cats, some breeds are simply harder to find than others. The rare breeds are often not found in small to medium-sized cities. One of these breeds is the Devon Rex. Finding Devon Rex Breeders outside of a major city just might prove a difficult task. That’s why today, we are going to discuss some ways so that you too can enjoy having one of these animals roaming around your home. Below you will find some tips that will help you get your search stared.
Buying things on Craigslist is sometimes ok, but when dealing with a live animal it’s best to stay away from this seller’s website. There have been countless cases of people getting ripped off or receiving very poor quality animals from this site. Instead search for independent breeders that have their own website. Any breeder that is reputable and has been in the industry for a while will have a website where potential clients can check out their cats. This is a great way to see all of their kittens and you can also see the parent animals. Many of these websites will also show you kittens they have raised in the past so you will get a good idea if they produce quality animals.
A great place to get into contact with Devon Rex Breeders is at a show. Many people who raise animals for a living like to place them in contest. The more trophies their animals win the higher the price they can charge. But to win a show, you have to have nothing but the best felines. This means that you will be getting a high quality kitten as well.
You might be surprised at just how many different kinds of felines your Vet sees every year. He or she might know someone that either breeds these animals or knows someone that does. So it wouldn’t hurt to ask. This is also a great reference because your vet would know which people have the best animals.
If you have your heart set on one of these animals this year but don’t know where to find one, make sure to follow these tips. With a little homework and of course some money, you will be on your way to having a new kitten to call your own. So why not get started today looking for that perfect feline?
