Hi, My mom signed me up for this account. I don’t have a sphynx cat yet. But I am going to get one and I’m really excited. I’m going to get one in a few months for christmas. I’ve done research and I think I’m ready to have one. I want to be a veterinarian when I grow because I like to work with animals. My mom found one for $800 dollars but how are we suppose to know if it’s at scam. But we trust it! I really really want her! I’m really good with animals so far. Can you guys please help us! I want to learn as much as possible!

We live in Florida. But we was texting a breeder from Texas for 800 dollars. Shipping inclusive.

@Acharyse welcome to the community. I would only buy sphynx cat if:

Breeder scans the mum and dad cat for HEART conditions called HCM and shows proof
Breeder provides health guarantee
Breeder provides registration certificate for the cat from a cat association which is registered

Some things to think about when preparing for your arrival:

You will need pet insurance to take care of your new kitten/cats health
You will need to buy toys, soft blankets, clothes, bedding
You will need very good quality food
You will need to kitty proof your house so it does not get tangled or hurt in blinds or from eating small things such as plastic
You will need three litter trays and get a routine of cleaning out the litter tray day and night (sphynx have very smelly poo poos)
You will need to have spare money / savings to pay for vet bills

I would also suggest you visit if you can or ask for a FACETIME/SKYPE meeting / call so you can see how she keeps her cats and the kittens.

Good luck.
