Congratulations!!! I have a couple of questions: if they live say, in NH would they be cold? Would you have to keep a sweater on them?
do they produce dander even though they have no fur? Would people with dander alergies be more alergic or less?

Are you sure they are not mice? i had some mice which looked identical as i used to breed mice

If you are allergic to the saliva from the cats, then you'd be allergic to a sphynx cat. I'm not allergic to cats, yet I had a reaction to petting one of them. So I would not recomend them to people who have allergies.

And yes you may have to put a sweater on them at times.

People allergic to cat dander will be allergic to the saliva from sphynx. But you can follow the same protocols to ensure less problems. I live in Nova Scotia, Canada which has very cold winters - it can be -20 now and then and has gone to -40 with the wind chill. "My" sphynx - foster kitties though I have them due to a living will but I call them fosters in the hope their mom will come out of a coma - wear sweaters galore but they never venture outdoors. They have a plethora of sweaters - kindly made by relatives, my patients, the ladies in the hospital auxillaries (We have to keep Dr. CK's kitties warm, lol) and friends. I have also bought some.

Sphynx are very friendly, not unlike my Siamese and love to be with people. If you have one, you will want another - they do not like being alone. They also love to climb and one of mine climbs up one side of me and down the other, lol (Usually when I am busy and getting dressed, heheh)

Which one in the picture is yours? Will you show them? Mine are champions and love the show circuit!

Are you going to start breeding or showing them?

I already breed bengals. I don't want to get seriously into breeding sphynx since im concentrating on my bengals (we both know what effort that takes). Im going to start showing my bengals soon. I am considering letting my sphynx have one or two litters but that's probably it. I might not let her breed at all it just depends on how things are going once she gets to be an adult and how much of a demand for sphynx kittens I find here. I can't find any local sphynx breeders so I don't even know that i'd be able to find stud services.

not in this litter. I decided to wait for another kitten from a different queen, same breeder though. I told her just to pick one for me as I don't care what color the kittens is they are all cute.
