Yeah, quite an Argento fan. Rosso is from "Profondo Rosso" or in English "Deep Red".

They are beautiful! When I saw your note about hubbies, (I had not heard of hubbies regarding cats) I thought you were talking about husbands!

Yeah, I believe both Dario and Rosso might turn out to be show quality. Tenebre... he doesn't have the ears, but he is shorter and broader in the head so he's not bad, but probably not show.

The thing is that so few people in Sweden show without breeding and Rosso isn't for breeding so sadly I don't see him making a show carreer unless his future owner let me show him.

Comparing the two - I'd go with Dario - like head, ears and he's got a thicker coat. Hopefully he will hold that coat

They are quite adorable ....

They are all very cute! I think I like Dario the best.

I'm not very familiar with this breed. Are the whiskers supposed to be short or non-existant? Or, did mom/siblings chew them off during nursing?

Congrats on a beautiful healthy litter!

That is how it is with Sphynx, don't know about this breed. I do think some Sphynx lines have Devon behind them.

I have no doubt he'll keep the coat, he's from "coated" blood lines. My only fear is that he'll get the same amount of guard hairs as his mother, they don't get very wavy then. This is mama cat:



And to be fair, she do have a quite wavy fur from time to time.

Devon Rexes shall have wavy/curly whiskers. The curls tend to make the whiskers more delicate though so in many Devon Rexes the whiskers easily break.

On the picture above you can see the babies mother, she's got wonderful wavy and strong whiskers. Just the way they should be. In my kittens mama cat chew the whisers. All the kittens in her previous litter has long and strong whiskers as adults.

Rex whiskers are more fragile and break more easily - I know my Cornish had little whiskers compared to normal cats.

As far as coat - if he's neutered and shown, he may keep the waves in better. My rex queen lost her waves after having kittens. But she produced very full coated kittens. After she was spayed and placed, she grew some of the waves back.

As long as mom is producing good coats, don't worry about what she has

She's produced very good coats and whiskers so I'm not worried about that at all and her own coat is good enough to become international champion. You might be right about her coat getting wavier after being spayed. For me it doesn't really matter since she's been retired from showing and seem to produce good coats.
