Hi Everyone!

I am looking for a sphynx breeder in or around the Illinois area. Closer would be better of course. Any suggestions would be great as to what I should be looking for or asking.

Welcome to Sphynx Lair. Members are not allowed to post breeder information on the boards, but perhaps someone will PM you with some suggestions. Research and patience are key to finding the right Sphynx. Good luck.

Oh, thank you for that info! Yes, I hope I will get some PM's. I am currently in talks with a breeder in Chicago but I would love more input!

Be careful.
Do not get a kitten from a breeder just because they are in your state or area.
I almost made that mistake.
Ask about HCM scans.
You can always pm me with breeder sites and ask questions.

I am in the Chicago suburbs and as far as I knew, there are no sphynx breeders here that I would deal with, especially in the city. PM me the breeder info and I will let you know if I am familiar with them. My breeder has since moved and retired.

Welcome to Sphynx Lair and best of luck in your search for a new kitten! My best advice is to research several different breeders websites in order to get a feel for their breeding practices. Each breeder is different. You'll soon discover what you love, and what you don't after a bit of research!

The kitten is cute.
I do not know her either but I have
heard of the breeder the sire is from.

I am looking at either one of the red tabby boys. I can't tell them apart very well, but I like the second one..

I am currently waiting to bring a sphynx kitten to my family next summer, and because of that, I have researched breeders all accross the US....Odds are, I've probably seen the breeder that you are considering! Do you mind PMing the website with the red tabby kittens that you are looking at? I'd love to see them and the breeder. Thanks!

Welcome and good luck finding the perfect kitty. Be sure to see a copy of the contract and health guarantee, ask whether or not the parents have been HCM scanned, ask about how the kittens are raised; in short, the more questions you ask the better your chances of finding a good reputable breeder. There's lots more good info around the lair if you just poke around and read.

Are we allow to post pedigree info on here? (i.e. if someone is researching lines are they able to post the names of the cats and then inquire or should that be done privately?

Just curious!
