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?
Let’s be honest, the main reason most of us get a Sphynx is that their hairless appearance is so unique.
You’ll also be happy to hear that they’re more than just naked cats, they’re actually awesome family pets.
Sphynxes have very strong outgoing, friendly, and social personalities. They love being around people and are fine if you have young kids and other pets.
They can be quite vocal, so expect a greeting when you come home or if it’s feeding time. But I wouldn’t exactly put them in the ‘noisy’ category.
You do have to take into account that they do not have a nice warm coat on like other cats – they really are basically naked.
I’m not sure you would want to let your Sphynx outdoors, not many people do. But they certainly are not outdoor cats anyway.
They’re prone to sunburn in the summer, and easily get too cold in the winter. A happy medium is a nice warm home and plenty of warm spots to sleep and blankets.
Some owners even put them in clothes. If you get your Sphynx used to this from an early age they tend to take to it really well.
So, if you’re looking for a curious and fun cat to add to your home – who just happens to be hairless – then a Sphynx is a perfect choice.
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!
