Hello there we are new here from Calgary Alberta Canada.

We are excited to Join Sphynxlair and get to know fellow Sphynx lovers.

We have been owned by Sphynx since 2013 with our rescue named Lily in 2016 we decided to enter the world of breeding Sphynx had one beautiful healthy litter of 7 babies in 2016 then ran into some family health issues and took a break from breeding.

We are totally owned by 6 cats now 4 Sphynx, one Devon Rex & one Karpati LaPerm Straight. We have recently decided to go back into breeding and have chosen to focus on health by testing all our cats for HCM, PKD, FIV & FELV with a full PCR Panel and HCM screening by a board Certified Cardiologist. We have also decided to focus on bringing more beautiful odd eyed Sphynx babies into Canada.

Wish us luck here we go on a Journey we truly enjoy every single moment with our babies and can’t wait to share them with all our friends and family.

Hi there hold on there are a lot of names hahah....

The white (furry one) is a Devon Rex Rescue he is a neutered Double Champion he is odd eyed too he would have made wonderful babies if he was not neutered he has an amazing personality he loves all people, all dogs, all other cats , loves to be vacuumed, loves the bath and will not eat human food even if I try to give him human Tuna he refuses. He is not destructive and loves to cuddle.

His name is Mr. Sensi Meowgi

The greyish looking one (long hair) is a Laperm Straight he has a “new trait” to the breed he is a Karpati Color simiar to Lykoi colour except he doesn’t loose his hair he is my moms cat and he is a big baby afraid of everything lol but loves to snuggle.

His name is Dark Prince Romeo

The blue & White Tuxedo Sphynx or maybe he is Bi Colour I don’t know lol he is a huge male he is only 10 months old and already twice the size of my female he is the biggest cat in the house and has the biggest heart he can rarely sit still because he needs to go and love everyone in the house so is constantly running around from person to person to get his snuggles and he is super good as he does not spay or destroy things he just likes cuddles sometimes a little too roughly lol.

His name is Blues Clues

The white girl In the rainbow shirt with the strange odd eyes (it’s hard to tell) she has one aqua & one blue she has a very spunky personality loves to bite when she wants attention and loves to cuddle she is a chatty little thing and will follow you wherever you go but be warned your feet are not safe while sleeping lol she bites hard. She is our spoiled little pet Sphynx she will not be in our breeding program.

Her name is Dream

The last 2 little white girls are Oddessa & Oddette they are both odd eyed whites one with blue & green the other blue & yellow/gold they are 8 months and 3 months old they are coming to me at the end of January so I don’t know too much about their personality right now.

I don’t know about everyone else but we use Chi shampoo & conditioner for all our cats it smells good and works great and they never have issues with it being too strong for their skin

For ear cleaners we actually just use alcohol wipes and that seems to work it also really helps for the black buildup on the nails

Food we switch between a few here in Canada nature valley instinct raw boost usually the ones we go with.

Ya I was not sure which products you have in the USA I know it’s a lot more than what we have here :) I want to move to California lol but it’s too expensive for healthcare my son had blood transfusions every 2 weeks I would be on the street from debt lol

The alcohol wipes yes the little square ones they work wonders just make sure you baby is not sensitive to them and of course don’t get it in the eyes haha .

Good luck with breeding.

Hello and welcome to you and your gorgeous family! They are all so stunning :love: Massive kudos for doing all the health checks before breeding, and I'm sure you will have healthy and beautiful babies.

Welcome! We also live in Calgary! We have one sphynx kitten and an 8 year old Devon Rex. We are also contemplating a LaPerm too! Would love to hear more about where you got yours as well as how they all interact together. Pixel is currently driving Malbec insane with his relentless rough play. Lol.

Warmest welcome! Love your stunning crew! I just gotta say that focus on the health is music to my ears (and to anyone who has lost a baby to some of those things). Odd eyes are rare here in Sweden where I live, it's like the holy grail of the sphynx. I would love to own one some day... Good luck to you and keep us posted!

Welcome @OddlyNude - I warn u this site and this friendly community is as addicting as our sphynxes haha I mean my morning coffee ain’t the same without it.

I smiled when I read the name Blues Clues haha where is the “handy dandy ——notebook!” Nostalgia to the max.

I’ve heard of Karpati colouring but never really saw one in “real” photos much less on an already rare La Perm breed. How do La Perms compare to Sphynxes in Personality? Are they more active or more similar to a Domestic?

Hugs from Toronto,

CO

hi there unfortunately we no longer own the 3 sphynx cats we ended up finding out that they came from some very unhealthy lines so decided not to breed them and put them in a pet home now we only have Oscar & Uslada

Romeo the Laperm straight Karpti is a very strange cat he is my mother in laws cat he is really loving towards her and adores attention from anyone who will pet him but he is also very skittish as well not like a sphynx at all haha but he has his own good traits.

attached are pics of Uslada & Oscar our colored

I am definitely not a cat person (says she who is about to get her second Sphynx!), but all of your cats are absolutely beautiful! Your Devon Rex is an absolutely handsome boy, and your La Perm Straight is so unusual... I have never seen one before. And, of course your Sphynxs' are gorgeous. I love odd-eyes, and would love a white or cream baby with those beautiful blue eyes one day. Hope to see m ore pics of your tribe soon!
