It has been a busy few weeks here on my end. My husband and I have been involved in a fairly big home renovation project involving moving a wall and closets in between our master bedroom and our 12 year old's room. But I wanted to give you an update on my Sphynx quest since my last post:
http://www.sphynxlair.com/f7/my-monkey-said-ok-3660/

I have found a breeder to work with that I trust and have the upmost repect for. She knows I am committed to exploring volunteer work in pet assisted therapy with my next Sphynx, and has a great handle on what I'm looking for in regards to temperment and personality.

Originally we spoke about her considering placing a retiree with me in the next year or so, but a couple of weeks ago our discussuions have turned to adopting a kitten. She had a few litters born in the spring and although most of the kittens were placed right away, she was holding onto 3 or 4 to have evaluated for showing. She only plans to show one so the others will be available in the near future. During the last few weeks she has been able to closely evaluate their personalities and sees a couple who have great potential as pet assisted therapy cats. My chances are very good that I may have a new Sphynx to love by the end of the summer. I can hardly believe it. Now that the construction is done and I have a bedroom that is safe and secure enough to bring home a new addition, I'm getting very excited. It makes the last three weeks of grueling work in the heat and humidity worth it.

Ooohhhhhh!!!!

I am so happy for you! How exciting. Seems that the long wait and hard work that you have been going through, will be more than worth it. Soon you'll be having a baby Sphynx to love and cuddle in your arms, while you spend time on SphynxLair. Awww, I am just so excited for you! Now, now, we need more details on the kittens that the breeder has an interest for you. Does she have a favorite one for you? Is it a little girl or a little boy? What color is the baby? Do you have any pictures of the kittens?

I am so happy to have read this post just before I left. I'm off to work now!

This is wonderful news MMSB! I'm so excited for you. Nothing like rewarding yourself for all that hard work with a warm baby to snuggle up with. I'd love to get into therapy work but with all the Delta crap going on recently I'm not so certain I want to get involved.

So now we need pics and details! And more pics!

It couldn't happen to a nicer person. I am very happy for you. You have been here every day, comforting those who are sad, supporting and cheering for us all. Sharing everything and celebrating everyone's victories and all the while wishing for a sphynx to come back into your life. This news made me tear up a little...I love it that you will soon have a baby in your heart again....and true to form, you will be also using this little darling to help others. May this be the start of something wonderful for you my friend. I am very excited for you and like everybody else, I can't wait to hear and see more.
Much love from me and the gang,
Susi, Moody, Habibi, Othie Marie, Dulcinea, Boo, and Lulu

What a lovely thing to say, Susi. If I could give you a bigger "Thanks" I would. <Hugs>

I'm very excited, but I'm trying to keep my excitment in check. It is all so surreal especially since I had convinced myself that I was going to have to cope with a much longer wait.

Right now I am still waiting for final word on which kitten the breeder will be keeping for show. They are about 4 months old now. It looks as if I will be getting a boy; either a blue and white or a blue mink. They are both beautiful. To be honest I will be honored to have either one.

The breeder is in Georgia and has been a big advocate of HCM research. She has worked with a couple who does pet assisted therapy and wants me to have a kitten with beautiful skin besides a loving personality.

I will post pictures and more details when I have them.

I have wanted another Sphynx so badly, that I would take one with a crooked tail or offset ears, but my breeder won't hear of it.

I am very happy she thought about skin quality. Here I was only thinking about personality, but she wanted the cat to 'feel good' and not greasy when people pet him.

You know you will be the first ones to see pictures when the final decision is made. I
can't wait!

It's funny how excited I am for you, and yet I am not even the one getting the sphynx :LOL: I have always wanted to do pet therapy with my Golden....I should look into it again, she has an excellent temperment for it. Anyways, I can't wait to hear the final verdict on which kitten you get to bring home!

This is all so surreal to me. I'm excited yet can't believe this is really happening. I haven't told anyone outside of my immediate family yet. I'm so happy to have friends who are excited for me.

I am so excited for you! I just can't wait to see the post "My baby is home!" and see pictures of your snuggling bundle of wrinkly joy. I know how badly you want this baby and no one deserves this kitten more than you. He will be one lucky boy to have you all as a forever family.

And like the others said...Can't wait for pictures!!!!!!!!
