The Devon Rex Cat Breed

The Devon Rex Cat Breed

I was brought up in quite a rural area of Scotland and while many people especially on the farms round about had cats and we of course had pet cats at home they were all “ Moggie “ cats and great characters some of them were. After I qualified as a veterinary surgeon I soon moved down to the South of England quite near London and I soon began to see pedigree cats in fair numbers in my clinic. My first sight of a Rex breed really freaked me out, when I first saw one I thought it was suffering from some exotic skin condition or other! Plus it looked like an alien!

In large breeds you might be able to see the duct openings but they are normally hard to spot by the untrained eye. The anal gland sacs are filled with a viscous dark fluid with a distinctive smell.

This disease is one which cat owners can get dramatically wrong if they try and sort things on a home remedy basis. They see their cats are straining in the litter tray and naturally assume that the poor cat is constipated and accordingly try the likes of liquid paraffin { Also called mineral oil }, orally. But beware, sometimes this does not work because the cat had a blocked bladder instead of constipation and the time lost in getting to a vet could well be critical as kidney failure can be a consequence.
