    Any Sphynx Cats for Adoption In the Bay Area?

    I recently was introduced to sphynx cats and got hooked. Because i am allergic to cats, I researched and found that Sphynx's are some of the least allergen-producing cats. I was wondering if there are any sphynx cats for adoption in the bay area. Thank you all!
