Greetings, I received an email from a potential new sphynx owner through Youtube and he was interested in possibly becoming a new owner. I'll reprint his email here. Please comment. "hi, i spoke to you a while ago about sphynx and you educated me a lot on them. today i finally went to visit a sphynx i want to buy. they feel so cool and look so neat. i am set on getting it but the only issue i have is this, theyre are 2 1. the cat is 2 years old and i am afraid it won't bond with me the same way it would have if i had it since a kitten. 2. the cat is small, but its only 2 years old, im not sure if its going to grow more or if thats its normal size, it doesnt have a belly gut yet. can you take a look at the pics and tell me if you think it'll get bigger? also, the owner says you have to bath them once a week or they get dirty and especially their behinds because it will smell like pooh the dark grey one is the one i want to get: http://toronto.kijiji.ca/c-pets-cats-kittens-for-sale-2-Sphynx-cats-male-neutered-vaccinated-750-850-W0QQAdIdZ195898346" Oh and anyone who might be interested this little guy is also available My initial feeling is this: The cat will bond to you. It may take a few days but the kitty will latch on and never let go. I really don't think that will be a problem. If the cat is two years old, his growing days are probably over. He should be between 8-12 pounds. You do have to bathe them. It's different for all kitties but I bathe Butterball once a month. As long as kitty is on a good diet and doesn't have runny stools, then he won't smell like pooh. They do secrete an oil that needs to be cleaned off occasionally. If kitty finds a comfortable place and you don't want that place to be discolored, then yes you probably should bathe him once a week. But my feeling is they are cleaner than dogs. I would say it sounds pretty good. But the $850 price tag is a little high for a two year old. But, he might be worth it. Try to deal him down a little bit. Maybe $100 bucks. He should be up to date on shots and clear from any health issues. Ask about an HCM scan too.
