Well, I was raised with a dad that hated cats so we never had one always several dogs at once. They didn't bother me, I didn't not like them... just never had one. Once I became a Vet Tech obviously I was exposed to many cats of all types. I will never forget this cat; her name was Secret she was hospitalized because she was diagnosed with Diabetes & we were trying to get it under control. Well I guess the owner didn't want to be bothered with the cost of it or the time to care for her at home so they abandoned her, we never heard from them again, they changed their phone number... I hope they do not have kids! Anyways, she was the sweetest cat, just a regular DSH but a doll. She made me love cats. My husband & I both love animals so we decided to checkout the shelters for cats & we found one that loved my husband & played fetch (just a blk & wht DSH) well we were going to adopt him but they told us we would have to come back because adoption hours we over. I have always like the look of the Sphynx; they are different & I like animals that no one else has... I guess I just like to be different, that is why I have Bull Terriers. So I got online & started reading about their personalities & we decided to go with a Sphnyx. We got Fuzz as you all know what happened with him & now we have Kramer. But having to be different has definitely worked for me since my bullies are awesome & have a personality like no other dog I have ever encountered as well as the Sphynx not being like your normal cat, so I can say that I am definitely hooked on the breed! Ironically my dad doesn't hate Kramer, he likes him. My dad tries to be a tough guy but he is a softie for animals...he is the one that drove 1/2 to NY to pick him up with me! They ask me to bring him over because their wire fox terrier loves him. I think people are taken aback by their look but once they get to know them they can't not like them & if they still don't like them they are just evil people! I'm used to it people either love the way Bull Terriers look or hate the way they look...so if anyone needs some sarcastic comments when people say rude things... I am well seasoned with this! LOL!
