Hi Everyone!!!

HI Everyone

My name is Jules & I have a 5 yr old Devon Rex. His name is Harley & he is a Blue Smoke & oh so cute.

I got him because I am allergic to cats but alas I am allergic to him also. I have to take extra precautions with him but I would NEVER get rid of him.

He was quite a handful for the first few years but has settled down a lot. Thank Goodness!

Looking forward to posting with all of you!

Hi and welcome here to TCS!
I`m glad you have found a way and are able to keep your kitty , even with your allergies....maybe you could share some of your ideas on how you protect yourself....I`m sure you are not the only one on this sight with that problem and someone else might really appreciate your input.

Hey, WELCOME to TCS! Oh, of course you would never get rid of your cat. You definitely sound like one of us crazy cat-lovers!! So you belong on this site.

Harley sounds like a sweetie-pie...can't wait to see pictures, if you can post some. Have a good time here.

Oh Thanks so much for the welcomes!

I found this site by accident & it seems like there is a lovely bunch of members on here, so I joined.

As for my Harley he is very strong willed. I will post pics after Christmas when I get my Digital Camera. I have had all sorts of comments about his, shall I say unusual looks. A friend of my dau said that he was the ugliest cat he had ever seen. LOL

Not one person I know had ever seen a Devon Rex before we got him.

I wanted him to be an indoor cat but he had other ideas. He used to escape non-stop so now he is allowed out during the day but stays in at night. As for how I get around being allergic to him, he gets bathed once a week & I only nurse him wrapped up in a towel. I also found that by feeding him with good quality food makes a difference, he gets Royal Canin, fresh meat & vegies & chicken necks.

I have Eczema so direct contact with him is impossible. When he was a kitten I didn't have a problem, he used to sleep in bed with me but once he started getting outside thats when the problems began. So I guess technically it is not him but what he gets into outside.

Great to be here.
