Snap Shots 1 (2017 & previous years)

Monee’s BJ checks out Evie’s cream cheese 12-27-13

Evie loves cream cheese. There are a variety of things that Devon Rex just love us to share with them. (BJ like Cheetos Puffs) Small tastes of human food may be a treat – but never give foods with garliconions, or chocolate. Most herbs are not a good idea either. Cats and kittens may drink goat’s milk but should not drink regular milk from cows. Skip the beer, wine, and fine spirits, too, please:>)

Neon-Cat Virgil – natural mink; 7 weeks old; 7-29-15

Neon-Cat Virgil – natural mink boy at 7 weeks old; Virgil’s point color arises from a combination of the cs (Siamese) and cb (Burmese) genes which form the color basis for Tonkinese cats. Being recessive genes, both the cs and cb genes may convey down family lines, as they did in Virgil’s relatives; Virgil’s mom is a mitted chocolate & white queen; his dad is a blue-eyed red lynx point & white stud; Virgil has four siblings – a tortie sister, a tortie & white sister, a chocolate tortie & white sister, and a black & white brother. Virgil’s eye color will be a beautiful, (non-flashing) blue-green as he ages. It is estimated that Devon Rex can have over 1200 colors and patterns. Photo from 7-29-15

The classic tabby brothers – Megan’s Sterling and Olya’s Matroskin at 9 weeks old. Sterling is a silver classic tabby & white boy and Matroskin is a red classic tabby & white boy. Domestic cats have four distinct and heritable coat patterns – ticked (‘Abyssinian’ with faint striping on face and/or tail and a dark stripe down the center of the back), mackerel (parallel stripes off the center-line of the back), classic (whorled and blotched with center-body bull’s eye), and spotted (usually a broken mackerel pattern) – that are collectively referred to as tabby markings. We usually have kittens with mackerel or classic tabby patterns with an occassional spotted tabby girl or boy. The “and white” color results from the action of the white spotting (piebald) genes and may occur with any coat color or pattern. Photo from 10-24-15.

Neon-Cat Ranger, a red classic tabby & white Devon Rex boy was our main stud cat for many years. He has a wonderful, soft, wavy coat. Intact (whole, i.e. un-neutered) males have large, strong jaw muscles that help them bite necks as part of the mating process. These large jowls tend to make their ears look less prominent. Neutered male pets usually display great ears since they do not grow stud jowls.
