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 Will a Sphynx Cost?
There is no set price for a Sphynx. In fact, the price of a Sphynx can vary a lot depending on how well-bred it is, if it’s a cross-breed, and some other factors.
However, to give you a general idea, I took a look at the price lists for a few breeders and catteries across the country.
Most are priced in the range of $1,500-$4,000. They don’t come cheap, but they’re worth every penny!
Don’t be surprised if you’re asked to put down a large deposit when you want to reserve a kitten. This is to cover some of the breeder’s costs in case you change your mind.
Are Sphynxes Good Family Pets?
You’re certainly going to turn heads when you have a Sphynx as a family pet!
It’s a Sphynx’s lack of fur that they’re known for. But they’re also great family pets and a load of fun to have around the home.
Sphynx are curious, playful, friendly, and social. If you’re looking for a cat to play with, hang out with, and see around the home, then a Sphynx is the right choice.
You do have to remember that they’re essentially naked, so they are prone to feeling the chill.
Some owners dress up their Sphynx with a sweater or other kitty clothes. They take to it really well if you dress them from an early age.
They’re equally at risk of sunburn without fur to protect them, so if you have an outdoor space for your Sphynx please be aware of the risks.
If you have any questions specific to your home or situation and how a Sphynx will fit in, you should always raise these questions with a breeder that you want to work 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!
