hello, not sure if this is the right place to post this or not -

I'm in the US and have a calm female that I think is lonely, I would like to add a calm adult (preferably male) to the house instead of an energetic kitten. Where do you search for this?
kittens seem to be a dime a dozen, but adults are a challenge. If I was to purchase from a breeder, it would have to be a reputable hcm scanning breeder. When taking in a cat from a previous owner I'm not as picky, but I cannot financially reward what I view as a "bad breeder"

There isn't a for sale section hiding in here right?
Thanks

Welcome @Melcap to sphynxlair

There is indeed no “for sale” section here. This is because breeders are not allowed to advertise on sphynxlair. You can make a thread and say in which area you leave so members can pm you the name of a breeder. There’s an adoption section where you can ask for cats that are up for adoption. I’ll tag @Catzzzmeow and @admin for you cause they can help you with this.

Thank you! I've been looking on there, it's what brought me to this website to start :)

I've been looking for a rescue for 1.5 yrs - at this point I am accepting that I will have to purchase a cat, something I swore I would never do given the rate of euthanasia of cats per year.

I want Waffles to have a hairless sibling to cuddle, but I cannot find an adult to purchase.

Which forum am I supposed to ask for breeder recommendations? Though I don't want a kitten.

I'll fly anywhere in the US to get one - location doesn't matter - it's finding the appropriate personality adult from a good breeder that's hard. I'm not buying from a crummy breeder.

@Melcap, stay Positve check the rescue adoption section often
I adopted two from a lair member

You can post thread for reputable breeders in your area to get om their retiree list
I adopted a womderful retiree at a fraction of her original import cost.
She does ship and is extremely professional

If you like I can PM my breeders name .. She is meticulous amd kitties HCM scanned Regulary amd raised underfoot spoiled beyond measure .
