    I don't know of any forum users with a Sphynx. Do you have any? Glad you like them but have to admit, they kind of freak me out a bit! :yikes:

    happypurr - I'm sorry to hear you lost your sphynx :(

    I'm hoping to get one in the next year or so. I think they're lovely. :) I can't get one just yet but I cannot wait! I'm nervous about contacting a breeeder, sounds silly but I've never done it before hahaha

    I dont have any but my best friend has 4! (along with 10 furry cats)
    In fact when she dog sits the Sphynx's are the only one who stay in the room and they like to play with and cddle up to the dogs. Also the minute you sit down its always the bald cats that jump on yo and demand to be fussed.:D
    She has 3 boys (red/white, black and black and white) and one Diva girl (calico and white). Not sure I would want all that grooming to do though.:eek:

    Oh i wish i had a friend like yours and then i could have a daily fix until i get another one. They are very friendly and seem to adapt to whatever.My little puss is such a miss,she was always there and always so glad to see you and strangers.Does your friend breed?

    Noooo, she would never be able to give up any babies!!:rolleyes:
    She has just kept her eyes open and managed to get 2 of them quite cheaply. (alot of breeders had reduced prices due to the recession).
    Only 2 were full price, one was cheap coz the breeder was going on holiday and he was the last unsold kitten and one was rehomed because the son was allergic.
    They do have fantastic, funny little doglike personalities though dont they?? Even her Sphynx varient (furry boy) is a cuddly great lump.:D

    I like him/her. There's intelligence in those eyes. What does his/her skin feel like to the touch?

    Aww, what a fantastic photo!:D
    They are such lovely cats, Ive never met a breed like them. Althogh my experience is limited to moggies, ragdolls, siamese and devon/cornish rex they are def the most confident and friendly out of the bunch.
    When I get my cat numbers down to one I would def consider getting one, for no other reason then they are the most dog friendly! Although it seems the craze for Sphynx has died down and it is harder to find a breeder these days.:confused:

    What a lovely description :) I've always thought of them being a bit like a chamois leather.
    I'm not sure that I'd want one myself but they are certainly unique

    very soft chamois leather that's been microwaved for a bit lol

    Don't get a sphynx if you like a cat whose independent and will leave you alone to your own devices ......... if you have a sphynx you have a permanent bed warmer and shoulder pad and neck warmer and hat ............
