    * Judy Webb Gunby
    * Sphynx Breeder/Enthusiast



    Judy Webb Gunby has always been an animal lover. In fact, she met her husband, Cecil, through a common interest in exotic finches. Their Atlanta-area home is a literal menagerie that includes collections of finches, parrots, miniature horses, Boer goats, two dogs, and a small cattery of sphynx cats. "It's a lot of work to properly care for animals—it is truly a labor of love and devotion!" says Judy. In addition to family and friends, children enjoy visiting with the animals and touring the greenhouse full of orchids, bonsai, and various rare plants, another of Cecil's hobbies.



    Judy and Cecil are semi-retired and own a small service industry business as avian specialists, permitting them both the freedom to be home most of the week. Cecil also travels to bird shows as an NFSS and NAPS judge, on occasion.



    Having raised Burmese cats for several years, Judy met her first sphynx at a local CFA show, and instantly fell in love with the breed. Soon afterwards, she acquired two females, now retired, who were the foundation for her breeding program.



    Judy is pictured (at right) with a kitten from her very first litter named "Mr. Wrinkles!" "'Mr. Wrinkles!' taught me a great deal about the personality of the sphynx, including an understanding of their intelligence and sensitivity, and an appreciation of their comical and monkey-like behavior."



    Judy is looking forward to sharing her passion with the public. She often tells people interested in the sphynx breed, "If you want to be owned by a cat—if you want a constant companion—if you want an intelligent and responsive cat—if you want to be IN LOVE with a cat—then you should consider being owned by a sphynx!"



    Meet Judy and her sphynx companions at Meet the Breeds.

    I would love to go to Meet the Breeds but there is no way I can go.
    I live on the west coast and it is on the east coast.
    I do know some of the people that are going though.

    I would love to go but since my last trip to New york a couple a weeks ago ended with a cement brick hitting my car and messing up my running board, just leaving there when the plane crashed and the debris fell right where we were, and then getting my car key'd because the guy at the rest area didn't like how I parked my car, I don't see New York in my near future :BigSmile:
