The breeder said if everything is ok he will book a flight.
He only gets 10 days to ship her after the vet signs its ok.
Looks like she is coming next week.

Yea and i can not wait for her to get here.

Hope you get pics soon

I told Jack's breeder that all I need is a one day notice to take off work and she can ship anytime.

I can ask him if he has any more pics before she comes here.
Time will go by fast and you will have Jack.
I gave the breeder a choice of 6 airports.
I doubt he can ship to Modesto or Stockton because they are small.
There are 4 airports about 2 hours from here and I am sure it will be one of the,
I said he can pick.

Makes it easier.
I hate not knowing what airport but i said he can decide.
My sister wants it to be Sfo because she lives in the bay area.
I used to live near it also.

I'm so glad everything has worked out for you this time and you weren't put off by your first experience with the other breeder.

I'm lucky, I live only 15 minutes from our airport this time around

We drove 2 hours to get my last two cats also.
That other breeder sure made me mad and now she is selling stuff on her website.
I am glad your breeder is close.
The other one was 3 hours from here.

My breeder isn't close, just the airport.

Mine is in North Carolina so it will be a long flight.
How long is the flight for your kitten.
post #14 of 28
The flight itself is very short, only about 2 hours. But she needs to be at the airport several hours before the flight and lives over 2 hours away. Then of course flights are often delayed, and I have to wait 30-45 minutes after landing to pick her up.

So they spend around 7-8 hours or so in the carrier.

How long is Cleo's flight and travel time? I didn't let mine out in the car, but maybe you will want to do that?
Demetri was just fine, but either Ana or Farley wet in the carrier (they were in the same one)

I do not know how long the flight is yet because the breeder has not talked to the airline yet. He will let me know all the info soon.
I will not let her out in the truck because she might be scared.

Every Sphynx I've met has been friendly and bold. Some might shiver because they're cold, but with no fur, that's to be expected I suppose.

But yeah, I get the Ocicat = No fear. Same with well bred bengals.

mews2much, I am not sure which one I want yet LOL. I have my choice of a blue/grey and white girl and the same for the boy (see picture I have attached), but he has more of the blue/grey. I am still debating on which gender because I have my female Devon/sphynx cross who is registered, so if i got a male sphynx, then i can breed them and register them. However, I wanted a girl as well and then I can convince hubby to buy me a male after we've fallen head over heels for the first one LOL

I love them all.
You can always get a girl first and talk him into a male latter.
How much are you paying for your sphynx?
You can pm it to me if you want.
post #23 of 28
That's just what we talked about in the garage. I think that's what we're gonna do. I left a message on the breeder's answering machine, so I hope to talk to her tonight.

I think they're all cute. I watched a video last night on YouTube on bathing sphynx cats...very informative, and it helps to watch how its done. I mean, I am pretty sure I didn't need to watch it, but it was helpful...her sphynx was so at ease too. I think it'll be fun bathing my kitty once a week...just need to ask more questions about the type of shampoo to use, which on is the best, etc.

It will be fun bathing a cat.
I will need to keep my Russian Blue mix away from the sink.
She loves playing in water.
I should watch the video also.

Same here. No fear at all! And if she is anything like a normal Sphynx, she will demand you take her out and LOVE on HER! She will demand lots of attention

Congrats, it isn't long now
post #26 of 28
I haven't seen or touched a sphynx before, I've just adored them over the computer. We are going to this "cat show" at the mall in the city this weekend, but I'm pretty sure I won't see one there, but hubby just wants to go and check it out. I know they feel like rubbery skin, so that's not going to be a surprise.
post #27 of 28
Not rubbery skin, but like a warm slightly suade feeling - hard to describe. They almost seem they have a fever as you can feel the warmth of the skin without fur.

I love there personality (its like a rex) but just would rather have fur on my cats to pet
post #28 of 28
Bonnie is quite bald herself, especially her underside. I love the feel of her...and have feeling it alot lately as she's due in just 8 days. I have been loving the feeling of the babies moving without the fur muting it.

I know the breeder and I talked at great length about how loving they are and how they love to be on and around you all the time...that describes my perfect cat!!
