So I just read a article on PETA that kat von d is a horrible person because she choose to pay a breeder for a sphynx rather than adopt a homeless cat... Forget about kat Von d but to say a person is horrible because they choose to buy a sphynx from a breeder rather than adopt a homeless cat is wrong! My sphynx can't be compared to a regular cat. Not even talking about looks, his temperament alone is so amazing and far beyond any regular cat. He is like a family member who follows his house mates around all day and sleeps under the covers all night every night. After having him one week he began retrieving like a dog, he is so amazing. The breeder I got him from is so amazing and I just couldn't believe PETA would say such a thing!
