Hey everyone! I'm looking for an ethical cattery to adopt a black sphynx kitten from in or near Edmonton, Alberta.

I just recently pulled out of a contract with a TERRIBLE breeder (she refused to send me updates on our kitten or any proof that she had the cat in her possession and when I asked for it she got defensive and said I was accusing her of swapping kittens...needless to say I will NEVER fall for that again.)

Whatever cattery we choose MUST be able to provide the proper documentation concerning the health, safety, and well being of the cat as well as photos and videos with proof the cat is in the cattery's possession. It would also be ideal if we were able to visit the cat in person to check on him whenever possible.

Thank you in advance!

I’ll DM you with good breeder, if she doesn’t have any kittens she might be able to recommend another breeder that does.

Check out Alberta Sphynx and Lykoi Rescue, they are amazing. I know they have a few up for adoption right now, but they would also likely be helpful in referring you to a good breeder if kitten is for sure the route you want to go!

Alberta Sphynx has those two boys that had their eyes removed up for adoption. I don’t know if anyone has grabbed them up yet. They are such beautiful souls.

@Sheldon13 They have found homes, looks like there is still a beautiful 8 year old female available for adoption.

It’s so sad those two boys didn’t get medical treatment in time to save their eyes. My rescue girl also had an extremely bad eye infection left untreated too long, she now has permanent eye damage
even after treatment from her rescue thankfully she seems to see alright.

@Breeze mine was more fortunate, though I am disappointed in the shelter for not starting treatment on her in the four days they had her. She had a bad eye infection and I took her to the vet the day after I brought her home. She still squints in that eye due to some scar tissue.
