If she is highly allergic to cats, she probably will not be able to have any breed. Most people are allergic to the saliva and all cats wash themselves, so you'd still be allergic.
If she is insisting on a cat, she could contact a local breeder and explain the situation - they MAY allow her to either visit or have one of their cats as a trial period. I did that for a person who really wanted a kitten. Made the arrangement that they could keep the kitten for a week or so to see if there is a reaction (they had NO other pets, so it was safe). The poor daughter was STILL allergic to the kitten, and the mother tearfully returned him.
BTW devons do have a few guard hairs and will shed. Cornish are all undercoat and will shed less then Devons.
I would LOVE to see some pics of your c. rexs. They have always been a favorite of mine and never could find any, then I seen some ragdolls and said I would get one or the other some day, and a ragdoll came first, and so now im hooked, but would still like to have a cornish some day for a pet, or mabey raise some day. I had the chance once to get a devon, but it's not the same and I didn't feel it would be right to "settle" for some thing else. I have a pic of a womans ch show cornish, and it's the first I have EVER seen, HE is a male calico! He is absolutely beautiful, but I think I would like a black smoke (?) I think that's what they are called, or a white, mabey.
