    Hi my name is Debbie and I have just started my search for A sphynx and I found this forum.
    I have spoke to A few breeders but have not decided on one yet. I think I am looking at A 12 hour drive either way but that is ok with me. One breeder will not ship and one will but I don't mind the drive I work 3 long days A week and I am off 4 so I will have the time.

    Welcome! I think you'll find this site invaluable.

    I'm Mike and my sphynx's name is Butterball. I've posted about a thousand videos of him in the video section. Good luck with your sphynx search!

    Here's a quick picture.

    Welcome, Debbie! Best of luck in your search. You're going to love being owned by a sphynx. I cannot express the importance of finding a reputable breeder, and you'll find tons of information on this forum about what to look for in a good breeder. Most of all, find one that scans all of their breeding cats yearly for HCM, spays/neuters kittens before leaving the cattery and keeps them until at least 12 weeks of age, tests for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and offers a health guarantee in addition to a genetic health guarantee...among other things - use the search bar above and you'll find all the info you need! :ThumbsUp:

    If you have questions about a particular breeder, you cannot mention their names on the forum, but you can PM members privately for advice. If you have any general questions about the breed - we're all here to help!

    I am not sure what the real name for the color is but one is light color like A cream and one is white with some grey. I have not seen them in person yet only in pictures so it is very hard. I want to make sure I am sure before I take the drive.
