Sound up for a purrtastic friday🥰🎧

A post shared by REMY THE DEVON REX (@remy.the.rex) on

Q: When did you get your pet?

A: Remy was born on March 16th 2019, in Regina Saskatchewan. I was looking for a cat just like him because he is hypoallergenic, and I am very allergic to cats. He flew into Vancouver airport on June 21st and I picked him up!

Q: Why did you decide to start the Instagram account?

A: A couple days after I got Remy, I decided I wanted an account to keep the pictures I take of him all in one place. He got quite a few followers in a week or so, so I decided to document moments in his life for people to see!

Q: What do you think makes the account so popular?

A: Remy is a Devon Rex cat, which isn’t a popular cat around here. He has a quirky alien-like face, and some of his expressions make for good captions! I think people love to watch him grow and see what he’s up to!

Q: What do you want to achieve with the account?

A: I want to spread joy and laughter with this account as Remy is always up to something interesting! Would love to meet other cat lovers and possibly other Devon rex owners!

Q: What is your favourite part of running the account?

A: I love to see the positive feedback he receives under his photos, and I love capturing his life and his antics. We are always finding new ways to make people smile.
