Devon Rex 
15th-Mar-2010 07:00 am

I wouldn't count Devon Rex as one of my favorite cat breeds. Bengal, Birman, Ragdoll, Maine Coon and Munchkin - those are some of the breeds I go goo-goo-gah-gah for.

Unfortunately the SO is mildly allergic to cats - ie. he gets hayfever symptoms when in their vicinity or welts up badly if they scratch him. When we stayed with bankevair, he had to take anti-hestamines to curb the worst of the symptoms.

So I've had to give up on the idea of ever having a cat, since I refuse to have roaming cats. Cats should stay indoors, lest they contribute to killing the native fauna.

But on meeting ainead's furkids Fu and Willow, I am quite taken. They're not as furless as I imagined them to be. Their fur is like a soft cushy felt texture and doesn't come off the way long-haired cats do.

And best thing?

Me: "Sooooo... any allergic reaction to the cats?"
The SO: "Nope. Nothing."
Me: *grin*
The SO: "... no. We're not getting a cat."

Hmmmm... we shall see.

I've heard ragdolls were bred to be hypoallergenic as well, but they shed a lot. Everywhere. I didn't even like cuddling the one I had care of because my neck got all furry after.

Long haired cats all shed plenty. Not sure about the hypoallergenic-ness of a ragdoll though.

*even bigger goofy grin* I love my two girls - both Rhys and I are allergic to most cats so they were our last best hope.

And they are affectionate and silly and haven't been too destructive.

I don't know that you have much hope while Q is around but if the SO ever gives in.... I know a damned fine breeder.


You can go there to go 'aawwww' over the adorable babby kittehs that have recently been born.

And cockatiels live FOREVER - well, on average 15 years, which is a ridiculously long time for a pet.

As for destructive, I'd like to see the condition of the back of your couch... *eyebrow wriggle*

I know! Now if only the SO can convince the landlady we should have a cat. :p
