    Hi, my names Christopher, i don't have a sphynx but I've been hunting for one for about 5 years now. Then i saw this girl and my search turned serious.
    <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v685/TheFlork/DREAMTABBY.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
    of course this one was adopted weeks before i saw her and so has every other one iv ever found. I saw a few that where faded or different colors, but my heart is set.
    i think i've been to every breeder site on the internet and around the world, with virtually nothing to show for it... so i wait and i figure while i wait i should come here. best case scenario some one has a litter and i get a new best friend, worst case scenario i learn a thing or two :-D

    Hi Christopher! Welcome to the forum!

    I have a special place in my heart for the tabbies, too... (my boy, Walter is a tabby!) Their stripes fade as they get older, but they have the coolest spots on their bellies! Here are some pics for ya:

    Wrinkles breeder just sold a tabby sphynx to a person I sent to her.
    She may have more though.

    She does but you have to pm me for it.
    She could have another one and she has kittens due march 25th.
    She is also in San Diego.
    In fact the person that bought the kitten met me at the vallejo cat show.

    There are alot of cat shows in the bay area.
    I have also shown in San Jose and Hayward and Pleasanton.
    Maybe the breeder has a tabby right now also.
    She had the one Jill bought.
    She named him Avatar.

    I tried to look up cat toy but nothing came up.
    whats it like ordering overseas? i have to imagine its very costly and very stressful. not to mention paper work? hopefully i can find one that doesn't have to cross an ocean lol but then again a meow with an Aussie accent would be fun lol

    Wrinkles breeder just emailed me she had 4 tabbys but they are all old.
    She said you can get on her waiting list and she will have more tabbys in the future.
    Who knows maybe the next litter will have one.

    yeah she told me the same thing. like i said I'm always a day late and a doller short haha

    Im just scared to put a deposit down and go on a waiting list for a cat that doesn't even exist yet. and im so specific what if she never has another one or if i find one before her cats even breed. Even the one in the photograph i posted, shes from ... are we aloud to say? well any way she hasn't had another like her, she had a tabby not to long ago but it was all washed out and didn't have the clear markings this one does.
    i just dont know what to do lol
