So here's my plight. I have Sphyncter, a wonderful male sphynx that arrived at our home just over a week ago. I had no interest in owning a cat, much less a hairless one, but my husband brought him home with a sad story of his owners leaving town. He is 9 months old. He was very dirty and I believe underfed because he is so thin. His backbone and ribs are showing. I have cleaned him and completely fallen in LOVE! My understanding is that there were 3 more sphynx at the home. They were taken in by a friend of my husband's. One was given to their vet (whew!) which leaves two with my husband's friend. The friend really doesn't want the cats and has told my husband that the male "is spraying all over the house". I believe these two are adults and were supposed to be a breeding pair, but I'm not sure. I did receive copies of CFA papers for Sphyncter, although I have no interest in breeding or showing and plan to have him neutered. He has an appointment tomorrow for his first vet check. I am considering taking in the female from the friend so that Sphyncter has another sphynx to live with, but hate to leave the male alone, however I don't think I can handle him spraying in my house. That would at least give a home to one more and perhaps then we can find a home for the last one. Anyone out there with advice?
