So many people want to just breed watering down good blood lines that's going to make sphynx common and it's not a common feline. Don't mean to be like that but I'm sure most sphynx lovers understand where I'm coming from seen some sphynx cats on Craigslist that looked horrible and just sad and not even to standard and people breeding them just to sell. Non genuine breeders and non sphynx people will water down the whole existence of this breed. Will all the FIP from carriers and other stuff looking like a real quality sphynx and almost important a as health.

Just got tricked into what I thought a sphynx "should be" buying from a so called reputable breeder of course I love the cat no matter what it looks like but people really know how to get you these days.

@dejavually well you're babies are cute :)
My girl is lavender mink. Looks like this: so if she's similar to that I'd say yours is lavender.

This is Link, he's not home yet .. few more weeks.
He's 10 weeks old. The breeder said she thinks his eyes will still change to green but being that he's (thermal)pointed, I thought they always had blue eyes. Thoughts? Either way, we adore him but we're definitely curious.

Thanks YOUR BABY IS ADORABLE TOO!! I don't know who I would be without being introduced to this wonderful breed. Crazy how a stripper/video girl introduced me to this breed. I remember the first time I seen one....I fell in love haven't turned back since.

I am absolutely new to the Sphynx community. I
ve always wanted one, but now, people ask me his color, and as he was a rescue from a couple who couldn't keep him due to allergies, I have no idea. He is just pink all over, no real color except for a hint of peach colored fuzz on his nose and ear tips. Very light. He has whiskery white sparse hairs on his tail as well. What would you experts call him?

My boy Bear's parents (his father is a seal point) and his siblings. He is a very pink boy!! Not really any colour on his nose or ears. Maybe a slight orange when the lighting is just so or when dirty lol does that mean he is Red?? Or just called cream?

Yes, but the kitten hasn't been born yet, and we will be choosing the kitten a bit before we get it, so I haven't seen the kitten yet. :)

@ sphynkles, I know :) I just meant that you might not need to guess when the time comes around to figure it out

Hi everyone! I was hoping I could get some help with figuring out what type of Sphynx my Meela is! If the pictures aren't the best let me know and ill upload better ones. The one with my husband is a dark picture but it really allows you too see the contrast between the grey and pink! Its hard to catch it on camera in normal sunlight! She is a light grey, her tail being a bit darker. The hair on the tips of her ears are very grey. She ask some pink closer to her belly/legs. The bridge of her nose is white and the tip of her nose is black! Her paw pads are a pink/cream and she has blue eyes!!

My breeder had Nigel classified as blue. He has gray/green eyes, a gray nose, but his paw pads are the richest chocolate brown. Is he a true blue?

What colour would this little guy be considered? He’s patchy grey.
