    So this year I would like to give back some, do some good deeds you know. So I have decided that I am going to use my knitting skills and my love for Bald Cats and combine the two. I would like to knit some Bald Kitty Sweaters and donate them to a sphynx rescue. I am also going to make blankets for the animal shelter and what not. The only problem is I don't know of any sphynx rescues. Before I got Abby I did some searches and had some trouble finding any. I also search the forums with not much luck. Does anyone know of any sphynx rescues? :Question:

        Abbyknitter, that's a really nice thing that you're doing! It seems that actual sphynx rescue facilities are few and far between, but here's a list of the few out there:
        http://sphynxnewsletter.com/sections/breeders/rescue.html
        I know personally that the NOAH group in MA gets a lot of sphynx rescues (I almost adopted a sphynx cat from them, but found Piglet instead here in CO).
        Good luck to you!!!

              absolutely! Are you on the Sphynx Rescue yahoo list? I know that group just placed 2 girls from Vegas, and I've seen them come up in Arizona a few times, too! Oogie came out of Logan, Haley came out of Las Vegas with her sister, Calipso.
