My name is Susan M. and I am a holistic animal practitioner. I am a true Canadian Sphynx cattery priding myself of having beautiful, well adjusted, friendly Sphynx kittens. I have been breeding Sphynx cats for 29 years. I stand behind the health and temperament of all my kittens. All adult cats are scanned. All kittens are guaranteed for congenital health and temperament. I will give you a lifetime of support for your kitten. I am available to answer questions and give advice 24 hours a day. No email or phone call will go unanswered. I do my very best to ensure you have a perfect little pet. My kittens are raised on a raw diet. Cats are obligate carnivores and do not require grains in their food. Before a kitten goes to a new home it is weaned onto a holistic grade of dry food. HCM is of great concern to many breeders today. If a kitten is diagnosed with HCM, adult cats are altered and placed as pets in an effort by all breeders to rid this terrible disease from our lines. It is imperative that breeders scan their cats. All of my kittens are guaranteed against HCM for a period of 3 years. The kitten will be replaced with a kitten from a different line, no questions asked if it dies from HCM. (The cost of spay/neuter and vaccinations is the responsibility of the kitten owner when a kitten is replaced..) As responsible breeders we are trying to rid this disease from our beautiful Sphynx cats. So please make sure your breeder scans.
SPHYNX CANADA KITTENS WELCOMES YOU WITH OPEN PAWS
I have been breeding cats since 1991 and devoted much time and attention to the healthy development of the Sphynx breed. I started breeding Devon Rex cats in the early 1990's and after many cat shows, fell in love with the Sphynx cat, which at the time was a cat in miscellaneous class. I was one of the first Sphynx catteries in Canada and devoted much time and attention to getting the Sphynx cat recognized in CFA. I also showed in miscellaneous class for years to help judges with the Sphynx standard.

I only have a few kittens a year and they are all hand raised. I am retired and my 6 grandchildren are in my home regularly playing with the kittens. I also have a Chinese Crested dog named Fonzie who enjoys the company of the kittens and will run and play with them regularly. Socialization is very important for a kitten and future health depends on it.
My cattery has been inspected by local authorities and have been given an "A" for our quality and care that all our cats and kittens receive.
A cattery's environment has a profound effect of the future health, personality and temperament of a kitten. And a new pet is a long term commitment.
We therefore encourage you to visit our cattery at any time so that you can personally observe the high standards that we enforce.
If it is not possible to visit us due to your geographical location, we will be happy to answer any questions you may have about our cattery.
My kittens are with human companionship from the day they are born, litter boxes are changed several times a day and we are meticulous about water and food dishes.
Our kittens are well socialized: they are handled constantly and run the house freely. Friends and visitors are encouraged to handle and play with them. This is very important for the proper development of a kitten's personality.
Our kittens are bathed, their ears cleaned and nails clipped on a regular basis from a very young age. We do this so that they are accustomed to these practices when they go to their new homes.
Sphynx cats are rare and we normally have a waiting list for our kittens. Pricing is standard, we do not charge more for eye colour etc. Usually, we make our kittens available between 12 and 16 weeks of age. After 12 weeks, our kittens have had their inoculations, are litter trained and have developed the physical and social stability needed for a new environment. At 12 weeks they have also developed their personality and social skills and their immune system has had time to mature. All of our kittens are spayed/neutered before going to their new homes.
Keeping such a rare treasure indoors, neutering or spaying and providing acceptable surfaces (e.g. scratching posts) for the natural behaviour of scratching (CFA disapproves of declawing or tendonectomy surgery) are essential elements for maintaining the long, healthy and joyful life of your Sphynx cat.
