Hi there,

My name is Pawel and I live in Warsaw, Poland. With my wife Anna we keep three Devon Rex cats. First two are siblings from the same litter: Albert(he) and Arwena(she), they are exactly two years old. Our third cat's name is Ursjusz(he) and he is one year old.

Our cats get along well with each other and are friendly towards people. Albert is 'my' cat, while the rest are Anna's. This means, that they like to spend all the time with 'their' human, following him around house, trying to climb up on the shoulders or just observing.

Regards

Hi there. Thanks for kind words:smile: Yes, this is Albert in my profile picture. He was named after well known physicist, since he always looks confused or pensive
I will upload some more pictures of whole bunch later today.

Best Regards

Yes, they are great :) They are Devon Rex breed, they have those big ears, big eyes.

Funny thing about them is that they wave their tails when they are happy, just as dogs. They sometimes call them "monkey in a cat suit" and I can confirm, that they are lively and curious - especially Albert, always on the lookout to make mischief or steal some food...

Great photos, Pawel!
But ohhhh, I really want to feel their fur, especially Ursjusz's special coat (?) They all look wonderfully adorable, lol.

I think there's a couple of active members here also with Devon Rex breeds. Love their huge ears! Must've been even bigger when they were younger! :O

Yes, they have this great soft undercoat, it's really nice and soft in touch. They actually have regular hair, but they are just missing the longer top coat of regular breeds. That's why we don't have a problem with cat fur everywhere :)

Must've been even bigger when they were younger! :O
Oh yes, that's true. I've found some old photos from the breeders. Enjoy!

Albert & Arwena, about 6 weeks old:


Albert, Arwena, their brother Aragorn and 'uncle' Maurycy (Neva Mascarade):

12 weeks old, about the time we got him:

Wow, your kitties are absolutely adorable!! I didn't realize that Devon Rex were such small cats - either that, or yours all happen to be petite. :) I love the picture of all three of them together - how wonderful that they get along so well!

Devons are rather small cats, mine are average for this breed. I don't notice it that much, because I see them everyday, but when compared with regular cats my friend owns, they seems compact indeed. Or the other way around - her's cats seems quite big.

I love the picture of all three of them together - how wonderful that they get along so well!
Their relationship was quite stormy. When Ursjusz first came, Arwena was hostile, while Albert accepted him almost immediately. She was hissing at him all the time and never allowed him to come near. Ursjusz on the other hand was never aggressive o hostile towards any other cat.
After a year Arwena and Ursjusz are friendly with each other, they particularly enjoy cat wrestling :)

Thanks, I'm glad that you liked my photos! Photography is my pastime and I really try to make those photos look nice.

Currently I'm working on a little project of making some portraits of the group of cats who live in the premisses of the hospital I've spent some time this year. Unfortunately I've missed the last days of warm Autumn weather, so it will have to be postponed a little.

Regards

Your photos are beautiful! You'd never guess that Ursjusz and Arwena didn't get along at first! The picture of the nose kiss is so sweet! And the one of Albert with his pink tongue sticking out is adorable. Then there's the one of Albert and Ursjusz buried in the blankets, and the one of Arwena with her forelegs folded under her. :luv

Yes, Albert and Ursjusz were like brothers from the beginning. Albert gave him a really warm welcome to his new home. On the other hand, when Albert got really sick this year and started to behave strangely (avoiding other cats, hiding in the closet etc.) Ursjusz was always friendly, while Arwena was occasionally hissing and chasing Albert off, since he behaved strangely, was smeared with smelling ointment and carried protective collar.

And yes - this is Arwena's signature pose - she is our princess and she knows it :)

Best Regards
