I have a male Sphynx that was a rescue. He is a 18 months old and his name is MooShoo. They are wonderful pets. Very docile, loving and loyal. And a real hoot. Pet quality can run anywhere from $800 to $1200. Show quality is alot more expensive. Sometimes the breeders will retire their studs and queens and place them as household pets for a reduced price. The best thing you can do is looking under sphynx breeders in yahoo. E-mail them and tell that you are looking for a pet and ask if they have any they plan on retiring.
Sphynx is a special breed of cat. Because they have little fur, other than a fine coat of down, barely seen by the naked eye (no fur except on their ears, nose and sometimes tail), they need to be indoor only cats. And they should be bathed at least twice a month. A cat secretes oils which are absorbed by their fur. In a Sphynx, it stays on their skin. The way I tell Moo needs a bath is when he gets a ring around his neck. Sort of like being down a quart of oil
. Their ears must also be cleaned out every other day or so as they get a bad wax build up also due to having no fur in their ears.
I would highly recommend a Sphynx to anyone who is looking for a cat. They adapt well to multi-cat households and loves the company. He also loves going for a ride in the car and being around people.
Good luck in your search!
Here's MooShoo. His eyes look that way because he had a virus in them and it caused scar tissue to form on his corneas. He is blind in his right eye and has limited vision in his left. But believe me, that does NOT stop him from running through my apartment.
