Devon Rex are not compatible with Cornish Rex, Selkirk Rex or LaPerm.

Such matings are therefore highly undesirable.

The product of such matings will be registered on the Reference Register and cannot be considered to be variants.

They cannot be used in either Rex breeding programme and should be placed on the non-active register.

It is considered to be in the best interest of the Devon Rex breed to keep it entirely separate from other incompatible Rex mutations.

All cats resulting from matings between Devon Rex and any other rex coated breed will have no breed number and will be over-stamped 'not recommended for breeding’.

Their progeny will remain permanently on the reference register.

Any cats of Devon Rex appearance, either Rex or normal coated, with Sphynx ancestry will be registered on the Reference Register and be over-stamped 'must not be used for Devon Rex breeding'.

No progeny will ever be recognised or registered as Devon Rex or Devon Rex Variants.

All cats resulting from matings between Devon Rex and any longhaired breed will be overstamped 'carries the longhair gene'. Their progeny will be overstamped 'may carry the longhair gene'.

Special notes

Outcrossing to improve genetic diversity and enhance health is still occasionally undertaken.

       

Experimental Breeding Programmes are ratified by the Breeds Standard Advisory Council.

Progeny will be listed on the provisionlal register and after 4 generations will then be listed on the full register.

Presently in New Zealand we have an experimental breeding program using Abyssinian out cross to increase gene diversity and establish cinnamon colour.
