A few changes at AEDREX at the beginning of the year:
- membership dates have changed:
1 January to 31 December, simpler than before: 1 September to 31 August of the following year, which were relevant given the date of creation of our Association: 1 May 2012, but not easy for our members to remember.

Here it is ! Our Special took place on Sunday 13 March: there were 2 absentees, 22 Devon Rex present. The judging went very well between the briefing and the debriefing. Mr Joël Henry our judge
was satisfied with all the cats presented. An aperitif followed gathering all the participants, then the podium with the first 11 (normally 10 but the judge wished to show 11 Devon Rex) and the
Best in Show finished by the Best of Best. You will have the complete results on our site when we have the official list. A snack closed this day, offered by Audrey and Julien, adorable couple of

We hope the new year will bring as many if not more participants than for our 2018 Special! the Paris are open, it is the case to say it !!!
Information: It is no longer possible to order blood kits at Alvédia: legislation has given this monopoly to veterinarians
and veterinary centers. We have therefore removed our partnership with this Laboratory.
We also remember that we are no longer members of the FIFe (FFF) since February, because of the ultimatum that this federation had imposed on us: the choice between them and the Loof. This unpleasant situation lasted since last year and we tried to plead our cause, on several occasions, associated with other Clubs concerned, but to no avail. We regret this situation which we hope will not be sustainable in the long run.
Our Breeding Special 2018 was held in Paris (Porte de Versailles) on January 13th: 35 Devon Rex registered, a record! the Aedrex organized with the judges Aline Noël-Garel and Stéphane Monnier this event with the reception of the participants, an aperitif and a snack and beautiful gifts.
