I wish I could help. My Amazon book search didn't bring up anything worthwhile. I have a funny feeling that the type of reference book you are looking for doesn't exist.

I hope you find one.

I searched online as well when I first got Snuffie. I couldn't find anything other than some little kid books or just cat books that mention the sphynx. My greatest source of info has been my breeder, SphynxLair and the internet in general.

Honestly after reading this post, I am thinking about writing one. I am a pretty good writer, I just dread the research part. It would take me a long time with as busy as I am going to be here real soon, but I am seriously thinking about it.

Go for it! :ThumbsUp:
I actually think you could make some real money on it too. With all of the Sphynx owners and breeders in the world, you would have a steady supply and demand from customers. Plus, I'd buy it!

I agree with Bella07 - Go for it! There is definitely a market for one. Just be sure we all get autographed copies!

That would be awesome! I'd buy it!! Would make a wonderful coffee table book!

I would want the general info, info on different personalities, tips and tricks for their care and grooming,,color photos,,perferably kitties from the Lair (haha),,um, common health issues, advice on questions to ask breeders, red flags or signs to avoid breeders, what you should receive when getting your registered sphynx kitten, importance of not supporting byb or breeders who don't HCM scan, importance of why not to declaw sphynx, different color variations of sphynx available, different haired sphynx (rubberbald/gummi, flocked, etc)cant think of anything else but maybe someone else can...

I'm looking forward to it!

I searched for one as well, and there is one book that I found, written by a breeder in Australia. I don't remember any of the names or details, but she basically had the same thought as Melonie, and wrote one herself...you can order it through her website, but I don't think it was done through a large publishing company so it is not carried by the large book sellers from what I can tell.

Here is the link to the book I was looking at (but didn't buy)



at least I think this is the book. It is a different website, but they do say co-authored!



And now I found the original site I was looking at...

I'm not sure how in depth it is; as i have never seen it but it is the only "adult" sphynx book I have seen... everything else is for kids. Hope this helps!

Do you want your Sphynx published?

After much tossing and turning over this idea, I have decided to give a Sphynx book a go! There are simply not enough Sphynx related stuff!!! So, I have 5 Sphynx that I could use for it, but I would rather open this up and get some other nakeds published too!

It will be a coffee table book with a sense of humor!
If you want to be considered for the book, please send me your BEST (clear) pics of your Sphynx- they can be funny, cute, pretty- it doesn't matter! Please don't forget to add your name and your cat's name so you can get the pic credit!

I am really excited about this, and figure worse case scenario, we have a published book of our "kids"! :Celebrate:

Any questions, just let me know!

Re: Do you want your Sphynx published?

What do you guys think? Should I include a little something about the kitty featured in each photo? I was thinking the name of both the kitty and owner, but I'm wondering if a little info on the kitty would be good idea. Maybe what they enjoy the most?
example:
Mischa
Loves standing on magazines, and eating Temptations!

What are your thoughts? Any suggestions?
