Some Tips When Choosing a Sphynx Breeder or Cattery
Looking for a Sphynx – or any pet for that matter – is an exciting time, but it can also feel a bit daunting.
As with anything, it helps to be prepared and to know what to expect.
I can’t tell you exactly what to expect as each breeder will handle things slightly differently. To help, here are some questions I suggest asking a breeder you want to adopt a from:
When will you be able to take the kitten home? – this is the most important question, right? You want to circle a day in the calendar when you’ll be bringing your new kitten home.
Generally speaking, kittens are at least 14 weeks old before they are removed from their mothers.
What vaccinations will the kitten have? – by 14 weeks of age, the kitten will probably have been vaccinated twice against various diseases.
It’s very important, however, that you know exactly what vaccinations it had and if there are any further vaccinations you will need to give them.
When will you get the paperwork? – the last thing most new kitten owners are thinking about is contracts and paperwork.
Contracts and legal rights are important though, and you will also need to know how to register your Sphynx as a pedigree.
How Much Does Sphynx Cat Cost?
Sphynxes are expensive, but I bet you’ll not find someone who doesn’t say they are worth every penny!
The cost can vary a lot depending on where you’re located, the demand, the characteristics and specifics of the cat, and loads of other factors.
Give you a general idea, however, I took a look at a bunch of Sphynx breeder’s prices. Most cats were in the $1,500-$4,000 range.
Remember, try not to get carried away without going over the contract and costs.
Make sure you know exactly how much you’re paying in total. It’s normal to be asked for a large non-refundable deposit, too, so keep that in mind.
Are Sphynx Cats Good Family Pets?
Yes, Sphynx cats are good family pets. Whether you have a busy household or a quiet one, a Sphynx will make for a great addition to your home.
Most people are drawn to them because they’re so unique looking – I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that a Sphynx doesn’t have any fur.
What most people do not talk about is how warm and loving their personalities are.
Sphynx are very social, curious, and intelligent cats. They do prefer a busy environment with plenty of human interaction.
Going back to their lack of fur, Sphynx cats are essentially naked. They do need a little more warmth than other cats, which is no surprise.
If it’s particularly cold where you live, you might want to consider buying a sweater or some other clothing for your Sphynx. It’s not as crazy as it sounds.
You’ll notice they naturally find a warm spot to sleep around the home, and many will snuggle up in blankets.
In a nutshell; if you’re looking for a unique, cute, curious, and social cat – then a Sphynx might just be the perfect choice for you.
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!
