|I reread your post and just wanted to add that I'm not sure Kijiji is the best place to buy purebred kittens. No problem with advertising on the Internet (I do it myself), but I'm not familiar with Kijiji (isn't it part of e-Bay? I'm not based in the U.S.). Perfectly good breeders advertise on the Internet, but scammers do, too. Just make sure it's a legitimate deal and do try to see the kittens before forking over any money. And yes, kittens are adorable, but even though I breed cats, I much prefer half-grown or adult cats. They are not as destructive, have distinct personalities, and you know what the cat will look like when it's grown. Not to say that you shouldn't buy kittens, but be suspicious of any breeder who will hand over the kittens before they are 3 months old. They need extra time with their siblings and Momcat to get properly socialized.
As I wrote above, Devon Rexes, likes Sphynxes, are unique-looking critters, so if that look appeals to you, go for it. You might want to check out other cat breeds by going to a cat show. I have too many cats as is, but my experience at shows makes me want to get a Siamese, a Persian, an Oriental Shorthair, a Norwegian Forest Cat...sigh. And don't forget that if you have a good shelter in your area, where the workers know their cats and can match you up with the right one, you might find the cat of your dreams. Good luck!
