Tips for Choosing a Breeder or Cattery
Finding a new kitten is a big deal – and it’s an even bigger deal when you have your options limited because you’re looking at rare breeds like Sphynx.
Is important you do your due diligence before committing to a breeder.
A couple of things I recommend is to first check but they’re registered with either The International Cat Association (TICA) or The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA).
Being part of either of these organizations demonstrates they are committed to ethical breeding and register all of their kittens. Although it’s not mandatory.
You should always ask plenty of questions, too. I recommend asking things like:
Can I visit the cattery? – this is not always possible, especially due to restrictions imposed by the pandemic.
But you should be able to visit your kitten at least once before taking it home. Or the breeder will arrange some facetime sessions.
Can I see the contract? – paperwork is usually the last thing on someone’s mind, but it’s very important that you know what you’re committing to.
Most breeders will ask you to fill out a questionnaire before considering you as a customer. Then there will be a contract as per the terms of the arrangement.
What diseases are covered/vaccinations given? – you also want to make sure you know which vaccinations the breeder is going to give your kitten, and which you’re responsible for.
It’s also a good time to ask them for advice on caring for your new kitten. There’s really no better person to ask than an experienced breeder.
Essentially, the most important thing when looking for a new kitten is that you think with your head and not get carried away with your heart when you see a cute kitten – and Sphynx kittens are super cute!
How Much Do Sphynx Cats Cost?
It’s difficult to give you an exact price as the cost of a Sphynx cat will vary quite a lot depending on the breeder, history, type, and some other factors.
To give you a general idea, however, I took a look at several breeders across the US and the cost of a Sphynx was in the $1,500-$4,000 range.
It’s specific cross breeds like Bambinos, Bambobs, Minskins that can have much higher price tags.
Be prepared to put down a sizable non-refundable deposit when reserving a kitten. This is normal, and it’s only fair as breeders need to cover their costs and the risk of people changing their minds.
Are Sphynx Cats Good Family Pets?
In a word – yes!
Sphynx are excellent family pets, and I’m not just saying that because you’re looking for one.
They’re super friendly and social, which of course means they’re going to fit into households well as long as they’re properly socialized.
They do enjoy human interaction and love to be petted. It takes a little getting used to stroking bare skin and not a soft, fluffy coat, but you get used to it quickly.
Another thing to keep in mind is that Sphynx are, well, naked. So, if you don’t keep your home nice and warm, you’re going to need to provide plenty of blankets – and a lot of owners even put them in a sweater.
If you have any questions or concerns about how a Sphynx will fit into your home, you should always discuss it with a breeder you’re interested in working with.
Please keep in mind that any breed characteristics are general. Every cat has its own unique personality – that’s one of the things that’s so lovable about cats!
