Good evening! I've joined this forum to get more info and learn more about the breed. I have wanted a Sphynx for as long as I can remember! I just love them, they are so gorgeous and feel divine. And although I have always kept my eye out on available litters - it really hasn't been the right time. We've either been planning to move and didn't want to drag a kitty around, working and not had enough time to give the kitty lots of attention or I've been pregnant! But despite all of this, I have constantly nagged my husband. I have recently came across a breeder who lives not far from me and she has some beautiful Sphynx! I rang her today and she said that she has just mated two females but isn't sure whether they are actually pregnant yet. If they are, and I decide to take one... I could have a beautiful sphynx baby in December, I'm guessing, because she doesn't let them go till 14 weeks. Anyhow, I also have two daughters. One is 21 months and the other is only 9 weeks! Are my children too young to introduce a Sphynx into our family? How is this breed with children? My husband's concern is cats around babies (he tells me stores of cats smothering babies) and that we aren't finished having children yet and isn't sure I should be around a cat when I am pregnant. Are these valid reasons? I really do want a sphynx - but only if it's going to work and it's right for my family. The only sort of cat I have had before are long haired Persians. If anyone has any info or advice - I'd love to hear it good or bad. Also, are there special names for the different colours? I am hoping to get a particular colour... lol. Cate.
