Hi all I'm Jayne and I live in the Midlands area of England.I'm hoping for help and advice as I have just taken on a sphynx/bengal F1 cross and next year if she is suitable I would like to mate her to a sphynx stud to progress to F2. I also keep/breed siamese and orientals but this is my first foray into the Sphynx breed - I am a huge fan though so I am quite excited about my new girl,even though she is of course fully coated and does not resemble her mommy at all! I am speaking to TICA about registrations etc. (mom is TICA,dad is GCCF) but I am very much working in the dark as I have no real knowledge of outcrossing,although I do understand the genetics which helps.I know that the bengal is not a recognised outcross so I'm expecting a few problems and no doubt lots of negative comments from some breeders,but hopefully a few people will help. So hello from me and little Bynx - I look forward to 'meeting' you all.
