Okay, I give in. Does anyone know of any good Sphynx breeders in the NJ area? Of course, tell me in a PM. Many thanks.

I was hoping to adopt, but I see that adoptable Sphynx are few and far between. I feel a bit guilty about considering buying from a breeder, but at the same time not guilty enough to not do it. You know what I mean? I think I'll need to adopt a kitty in the future to make up for it. ^_^

I am learning so much everyday just from this forum, and am very thankful for that.

Do not feel guilty.
My new sphynx is from North Carolina and so is my first one.
I live in California.
Does a breeder have to be in those two states?
Alot of us know good breeders but they are in other states.

Hey Mews2much. No, it does not HAVE to be in those 2 states, but I would prefer it to be in a not too far driving distance, and not be in too unfamiliar a location. I would travel into PA or Long Island, and would consider other not-too-far places. Thanks for asking. Who knows, maybe I will soon change my mind and consider further breeders. ^_~ After all I wasn't considering even going to a breeder at first.

Do you think it is better to find a more reputable breeder than having one nearby?

Good to know. Thanks for the input. I am all ears (or eyes). In that case, I would love if you could PM me the info of the breeder that you use in NC, or any other you could recommend.

My boyfriend is so against the idea of having an animal shipped (I was also), but I am trying to keep an open mind about this. He actually said he'd rather drive me to NC rather than have it shipped. :LOL: He's funny.

I would ship to get a great breeder any day. I was also not a "shipper". But let me tell you after my mess with the "close" breeder, I say Ship away. If you have a good breeder they will only ship when it best for your kitten. Good luck:ThumbsUp:.

I've seen many breeders in NJ. Unfortunately I didn't save or remember the info. My breeder was in Ohio. She sent my little buddy down here to Texas. I'm not sure how far that is from you.

You got Snuggles on Christmas Eve Tanya? I got Butterball on Christmas Eve 2008 too! A very special day indeed! Shipping was much easier than I was expecting.

Oooh, Tanya, that means Butterball and Snuggles are probably related! High fives on the sphynx family!

Come to think of it I believe our beloved Admin and Wife are in NJ.
Well it is nice one of you remember us!:Wink:

Thank you very much. That would be amazing. I'll send you a PM sometime to find out more info. I am taking this a little slow (obviously not VERY slow - HAHA), but I want to make sure I am prepared on my end.

Thanks everyone!
