    My friend lives out that way and has kittens due tomorrow.
    She expects 4 -5 kittens
    She also has a sphynx/devon outcross litter that is 1 month old.

    I just recognized the pics she was using as those stolen from a breeder that were mentioned on here before, and the scam is to send the money for shipping, she was telling me that she would ship the kitten right to my door, but the ad has been removed after I notified Kijiji...

    No I was looking at buying Hank from that ad, but someone on here has already gotten him! So I am glad he has a good home!

    Just curious, why a male kitten? It may be easier to find a sphynx in need of a home if you were willing to accept either sex. Girls are sweet too:Laugh:

    Do you need a male because you are trying to breed?

    Everyone here is trying to help you find a wonderful sphynx. No one is making accusations. If they were making accusations they would say" you want a male to breed" not asking you the questions they have been asking. We have lots of great people on here trying to help people find sphynx. I for one love to help people find their perfect pet. But sadly I have to say that with the demeanor you have had a=in some posts I have seen, I am sorry but I will not be helping on this one.

    Sphynxlair is awesome! I love it and the people!! If you dont agree please dont post bad remarks!

    Sorry admin if I am being rude! I am just upset now!:ThumbsDown:

    I thought at one time I would be interested in breeding.Some of the people here were very helpful with info towards that goal. I decided it wasn't what I wanted right now. My point is that asking if you want to breed is not an accusation. If that is your goal, then you would be looking for a different quality cat than a pet, and it helps us to help you find what you want knowing your goals. Iam not sure why you would be so defensive about the question.
    If you are sincere, there are many people here who can help you. It does seem like you are merely trying to incite trouble. Maybe we are misunderstanding.
    Sphynxlair is a great place if you give it a chance.

      she did accuse me of breeding, she fully said 'this one has red flags', what the heck is that?

      just as a girl would usually prefer a female cat, so she can put pink clothes on it i would perfer a male but i like both.

      Just because this person says that there are red flags does not mean she was saying that you were breeding. She also followed up by ASKING if you wanted a male to breed. There is no need for profanity (I feel the h*** is profanity). like others have posted on here we are all a great bunch of people on here and try to help find the best pet for your situation. I am sorry you couldn't handle the questions being thrown at you. However you should know that even breeders are going to ask you tough questions and may even say no sorry you can not adopt one of my kittens. So just be prepared.

      Good luck in your search!

      Yes - breeders do ask alot of questions. I don't blame them. If I had these lovely cats to find a home for I would interview a lot as well and even speak to them on more than one occasion just to ensure they were the right fit. I bet I spoke to my breeder about 10 times on the phone having normal conversation about everything before I got my kitty,,,and we still talk! She is basically a part of my family now since she brought my baby into the world.

      Sphynx Lair is a wonderful place, filled with loving, incredibly generous and giving people. They are intelligent, helpful and kind. So far, you have made some incredibly rude, tasteless comments and accusations of your own, but have a fairly thin skin when it comes to taking what you so freely dish out to others.
