My two Devons are related, half sister and half brother to each other, same dam but different sire. Both were raised by the same breeder. I've had them since they were each 4 months old. Alkee (white) is calmer, more outgoing, pretty unflappable, whereas Zuba is more high strung with a quick startle response to loud or unusual noises. He doesn't greet strangers at the door like Alkee, but once introduced to someone he will stay and seek attention. Both like to play retrieval games, Alkee prefers stuffed mousies, Zuba likes wire spirals or other kinds of wires. Both are amenable to being handled and easy to clip nails, etc. Zuba is more openly affectionate (tho I find most males are more so than females). Alkee is affectionate especially when I'm trying to type on the computer, and likes lap snuggles most of the time if she initiates it....if I pick her up and place her, she'll often get down, but then I think that's typical "tortitude", as under that white coat of hers is masking a tortie cat. Some times she's insistently affectionate she wants to be. She's also more sensitive of my moods or state of health, and very compassionate if I sneeze or am feeling ill. Zuba could care less, as long as he can lie beside me or in my lap. There are certainly some differences in cats even within the same litter, tho I've found that with purebred cats there is more consistency in their personalities.
