FAQ & PRICING

Q: ARE THE SPHYNX HYPOALLERGENIC? WILL I HAVE ALLERGIES TO THE SPHYNX BREED?


A: No animal is "hypoallergenic," including the Sphynx. While the lack of coat does make the Sphynx more tolerable to people with allergies to cats, there is no guarantee that if you are an allergy sufferer you will be able to keep a Sphynx as a pet.  

Q: HOW MUCH DOES A KITTEN COST?

A: Every breeder sets their own price.  I charge $2000.00 for a pet kitten.  The only time that this price would vary is for breeder or show kittens.   I require a 200.00 deposit which is non refundable unless I cannot supply you with a kitten in a timely fashion.    My kittens are raised on a raw diet of free range chicken along with numerous vitamins and mineral added.  They are fully vaccinated.  They are spayed/neutered before you receive them.  They are fully checked for health and I make sure that their temperament is good for your needs. I do not charge more for eye colour or skin colour as some breeders do.  That extra charge is unfounded and I disagree with that practice. Health is more important then eye color.     

ALL GOOD BREEDERS, ALTER THEIR KITTENS BEFORE PLACING. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS !  If you are told that they cannot find a vet to do this, tell them to drive out of the neighborhood and find one.  If they are not willing to do that, then they are not willing to put the kitten first.   A breeder that sells you a kitten under $900, or under 10 weeks of age, it is more than likely that there are health problems in the kitten, no vet costs, and the breeder will more than likely not replace it.    Pet quality is a kitten a breeder can't use in their breeding program for many different reasons.   

Q: IS THERE ANY SPECIAL MAINTENANCE WITH A SPHYNX?

A: The Sphynx is not a maintenance free cat. Due to the lack of coat, a Sphynx must be bathed regularly to keep the skin free of the naturally secreted oils that the coat on a normal coated cat absorbs. The very large ears, lacking hair to act as a filter for dust and dirt, also need to be cleaned regularly to avoid wax build-up.  We recommend that you wipe your cats face with cloth and water everyday or use baby wipes. 

Q: DO YOU SHIP?  HOW MUCH?

A: We do ship to the US and Canada.  We use heated live cargo when needed with a trusted air line.  We use United Live Animal Cargo out of Detroit Michigan.  In Canada we use  Air Canada.  I am a registered shipper with Transport Canada.

Q: HOW ARE THEIR PERSONALITIES? DO THEY GET ALONG WITH CHILDREN AND OTHER PETS?

A: Personality and Sphynx go hand in paw! While the disposition of any cat is highly influenced by the way the kittens are raised, Sphynx are generally highly affectionate, sociable, and intelligent. They tend to get along well with other pets, including dogs, and are the ultimate lap and bed cats.  Many of our kitten families come back for a second kitten. Because of their inquisitive, alert nature, Sphynx often make wonderful show cats as well as pets. They love to play with any age children!

Q: DO I HAVE TO KEEP MY HOUSE WARM?  DO THEY HAVE TO WEAR A SWEATER?

A: You can dress them up if you want. They get cold just like we do. If your cold they are too. If you have central air on and they get chilly, they will find a nice warm spot to curl up to. Your bed or arms are most preferred. Most house temperatures are just fine for the Sphynx. 

Q: HOW DO I KNOW I HAVE A GOOD ETHICAL BREEDER?

A: You need to do your homework. See their home, if you can't make it to the home, ask for pictures.  Look at the reference page, all breeders should have references! Do they tell you all the good with the bad, can you call them anytime and do they answer their phone or always call you back after you called? Do they talk positive about other breeders or spend more time talking about bad breeders?  Do they have useful information on their site.  Buying a kitten or cat should be a cozy fun feeling, with practical expectations of getting an animal.
