Chloe is my Sons but she is so attached to me that when he moves out he will leave her here! I know he paid a pretty good penny for her but i'm curious to what a normal cost is for them? I would love to get another one but my budget won't allow me to spend what my son paid:Sad:

It depends if they are pet,show or for breeding.
You can get a retired breeder or a older kitten cheaper.
What part of California are you in?

From a good breeder it could cost from $1000 to (I have seen)$1800. You can find them cheaper but risk getting a sick kitty. The same goes for rescue, you just cant know for sure! Best bet is get a retired breeder from a good breeder! I know of a breeder who has 2 not sure how much but you would have to pay for shipping. You can pm if you want more info. Good luck! I had a feeling you would want another! :Wink:

Hi! I have just started researching breeders for a kitten myself, and I have found that breeders in more populated areas sell their kitten for more than breeders in less populated areas.

On average, I have seen the average price is $1500 for a pet kitten. (I know, a lot of money!) But, they do come fixed, UTD on shots, and microchipped. If you are lucky, you might be able to find a retired breeder. On average, I have seen them up for adoption in the $500 range.

Again, it all depends on your location, time of the year, the breeder that you are contacting, and so on. If I were you, I would research a few breeders in your area and see what they are asking.

Good Luck in your search!

Good luck in your search:ThumbsUp: just remember that saving in the begining can end up costing alot in vet bills. A sphynx looking for a new hoe sounds like a great idea for you, keep in mind it could take a bit of time, but it is all woth the wait as you know and one will come your way.

Over here in England I have seen kittens priced from £750 upto £2500!!! Average price seems to be around the 1000-2000 pound mark...bless my boy he came through the sphynx welfare and cost me a lot less (£175) and all that was used for vet checks, dentals etc and didn't go in anyone's pocket...they are such fantastic people at the sphynx welfare here, I'm so glad I found them.

Hopefully something will come along for you just when the time is right.

Good luck with your search!

Mine were $1200 each but since I bought them together I got them both for $2000.00. I also did not want to get babies that were already fixed. I believe it is best to wait until they are at least 6 months old when they have developed enough. Prior to my Nude Boys, I had numerous Ferrets. The biggest problem with Ferrets in this country is that they are fixed from the breeders prior to arriving at the pet shops. Years of study have shown that fixing them at an early age has caused health issues later in life for them. I had been raised with numerous animals and it was a common practise to wait until after the first heat (female dogs) and at least 6 months for males to be fixed.

Please read as much as you can on this subject in order to make an "informed" decision on your own. This also includes researching any new "4 legged" family member to know what is best for them as well as you being the care giver.

Pets are little lives that we bring into our world. Just as a child, we should do our best to provide and care for them. People don't have children to amuse themselves with them discard them ( at least most don't!) Pets should have the same respect and love.
