Love that story! I think my babies has been the ambassadors for their breed. Not one human that's been to our house has been unaffected by them, one way or another. I remember when I bought Ossi my hubby thought it was a lot to pay for a cat (he grew up on a farm) but when we got him he fell in love in the car ride home. He also said "Hmmm... feels familiar when you stroke it" and the also refers to ball sacks when someone asks him how they feel. Now we can't imagine another breed.@Zab We went to a cat show and was kind of put off with how snooty many of the people were. There was a Sphynx breeder that was so down to earth she let me pet a kitten. Many do not let you touch the show Cats for fear of passing on things like URIs or skin issues like ringworm. She was a true ambassador of the breed and encouraged people to get to know all about them. When we lost our tux and tabby I said to hubby let’s get a Sphynx. He said no way they look like ball sacks lol. I said let’s just go look at a litter nearby and see. We went to a breeder’s house and she let us into a bedroom where the litter was she said just sit still. She closed the door and a bunch of little ears started popping up all over lol. They loved hubby and he loved their affectionate ways. We did not get one of those kittens something just didn’t feel right about the breeder and we did not make a connection with a particular kitten which come to think of it is really odd. Because back then HCM was not something that was a real worry with the breed etc. I started my quest for a sphynx when we got home. Found a breeder. There were 2 boys available one blue and white which was what I really hoped for, but when I saw the cream and white one in the pic, I was immediately in love! Crazy because hubby even said he knew I would like that one too lol. He was my heart cat and my reason to love again...and again.
