Choosing a Breeder or Cattery
Buying a kitten from an ethical and professional breeder is essential if you’re to get off on the right foot with a healthy kitten.
For this reason, it’s important you do some due diligence and lead with your head rather than your heart.
A few tips to help you find the right breeder for you:
Ask plenty of questions – have as much dialogue as you can – without taking up too much of their time.
The better you get to know the breeder and how they respond, the more you’ll know about how they operate.
See if you can visit their home – Due to covid, it’s not always possible to visit a breeder’s home before committing to a kitten.
They should let you visit the kitten and meet the parents, or at least see them via facetime before you pick them up though.
Look at their contract – Any reputable breeder will ask you to fill out a questionnaire before agreeing to sell you a kitten. They will also have a contract for you to sign.
Again, don’t get carried away when seeing a cute kitten without reading all the paperwork so you know what you’re committing to.
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!
