    Hmmmmm....does sounds a little too good to be true..all the pictures have different backgrounds too...surely if you were going to take photos of your kittens they would have similar backgrounds???

    • Scary sphynx
    • Puppy
    • Red Sphynx
    • Pink Sphynx
    • Orange Sphynx
    Sounds like a scam to me....but who is to know? Go on a few places like Hoobly, Kijiji, etc. to see if the kits pics are posted somewhere else.

    Thank you, that's exactly what I thought, the little white girl they called pink I thought I recognized to! This is why when I take pictures of my own puppies on the rare occasion I breed my show IGs I always put my kennel name on the photo itself near if not on the puppy so the photo can't be stollen or cropped to remove the kennel name and then stollen!

    Wow, what a shame. People out there have no conscience. They would have to use the cutest sphynx kitten pic they could find, too....that little kitty looks so cute sucking his thumb, who could resist that?

    I've got to start doing that. Honestly it never crossed my mind before I started out, that people would steal photo's for scams but I see it all the time and its scary.:Angry:
