Before I go on with what I need to say I will reiterate what I have always believed in. It is great if you and your vet decide whether or not to scan for HCM or make any other medical decision for that matter together as an owner and professional veterinarian. It is also your choice if you choose to feed your Sphynx cat raw, Iams, Science Diet of meow mix! It is a "choice" that you have as an owner or breeder . If your pet shows symptoms of HCM, absolutely get them tested with no delay. I do understand it is a horrible disease, that being said, It sickens me to know that what i now call the "HCM Extremists" still till this very day are bashing and torturing members of Sphynxlair because of a how one does not follow their opinion or rules of how an owner and their vet make a professional decision whether or not to scan their cats, or if a breeder and their vet decides he or she wants to scan or not. And if the breeders do not scan their considered BYB (Back yard breeders) and produce poor quality kittens. Who are they to judge? When did they become experts in the Sphynx breed? It is just a shame and I apologize for these evil people who can't just mind their business and keep their opinions and lies to themselves and stay on what I call "The dark side". It also curls my stomach on how "fake" they are and how one hides behind facebook and "banned" sphynxlair so we could not see the evil writings they scroll on their "wall" about Sphynxlair and our members. They are not breeders! Never have been nor are they vets! I truly believe they think they are the only ones worthy of owning a Sphynx cat! So I wish they would keep to themselves and let the rest of us normal Sphynx people enjoy what we cherish the most and that is our Sphynx. So those of you who frequent the "darkside," please keep what happens on Sphynxlair here on Sphynxlair, it is none of their business what we do here on Sphynxlair and enjoy here, and I would like to keep it that way. They're so bored with their own site they still lurk here for excitement to find things to gossip about, and one of them has actually signed up under a different user name. It's not fair to our members here to privately bash them outside of the site because of your beliefs and opinions! Grow up! Im sure they have a little messenger or two that will be sure to deliver this message from my site, so I will not bother sending it to them.
