I'm an experienced sphynx owner, looking to adopt. Our senior sphynx recently passed away, and we would love another. Sphynx cats are such an affectionate, friendly and loving breed. Our cat, Dodi was never without love and attention as we are a married couple with 4 children, ranging from ages 9 to 17. We have no pets in our household.

We are willing to travel and take multiples if you have companions to re-home.

Maybe look into Speciality Purebred Cat Rescue? They occasionally get sphynx. They operate in foster homes throughout the Midwest.

Thank you. Right now, they have some beautiful furry kitties, but I'll keep watching.

Yes. They do get sphynx but they usually go quickly. But at least it's another resource for you to check into.

Hi everyone. I'm still looking to adopt an adult. PM me if you know of a kitty in need of a new home. I've found some local breeders of kittens, but would prefer to rehome an adult or adopt a retired breeder in search of a forever home.

image.jpg So, I've been obsessively searching for an adult sphynx in need of rescue or rehoming, and I have found one in a nearby state. She's 2 1/2 and is being rehomed because the owner is ill. The owner wants to stay in touch which indicates to me she cares deeply for her pet. My kids are thrilled and want to pick her up immediately but we are planning on getting her on the 17th. Isn't she adorable?

Hi everyone. We picked up our new girl, Luna, today. She's amazing. She rode really well in the car. She's checking things out in the house, playing with toys, and doesn't seem stressed in the least. We are just letting her get the lay of the house. We are thrilled to have adopted her.

@Yoda mom we've been trying to tell Luna that she's getting a brother, but she seems to just stare at us blankly and continue purring. I may reach out to you for advice.

Here for you !
Give that girl a big kiss on her nose for me !
Can't wait for gotcha day pics of Maverick!
Pm me anytime !

I was heart broke when I lost my Yoda girl .. Then boom ...4 adoptees

"It isn't love till it's shared" :)

I got two Dabird pole toys ( but had to hide them in a closet when not in use or they will chew the string or get stuck in the string !)

Sooooo happy for your hearts and the sphynx stars aligning !
