    Hi everyone,

    New here !!

    Does anyone know where i can rehome a rescue sphynx kitten ?
    I'd rather rehome a kitty then buy one.


    Thanks !

    I'd love to know too - I'm in Cornwall.....very hard to find anything closer than about a 6 hour drive to London! Would LOVE to find a sphynx kitten.

    Yeah i know,

    Or the all put scams up on the internet.
    And if u do find a kitten they will ask u for 800 to 1000 pounds ....
    Why pay so much money for a kitty when there are so many stuck in a rescue centre.. and they need ur help much more..
    But i guess its a bit rare.. a rescued sphynx.. coz its not easy finding one :(


    I just am so in love with sphynx's !!!! :blushing:

    good luck with your search i would also check out the sun local as you will be surprised sometimes what you will find with the amount of people moving and being unable to take cats with them

    It's wonderful to see people wanting to help with rehoming Sphynxes. Mostly it is not the fault of the cat that they require rescue, Sphynxes do need special attention and if job circumstances change, or illness or other reasons mean the owner cannot keep up with grooming or socialising then it really is best they go to a new home.

    Good luck with finding a need Sphynx, when you get one you will have a loving companion (not like those OTHER cats ;) )

    Thanks so much or posting the link to that site! I have contacted them enquiring about being put on a list to adopt a sphynx in need.

    Fingers crossed!

    I will post here if i hear of any needing new homes. i do from time to time, but please be prepared to wait, as most are taken back by the breeder.

    If you look on `Cat Chat` you will find a list of cat rescues including sphynx rescue. Hope this helps.

    hiya, i know this post is years old but i liked it! we rehomed our first sphynx nearly a year ago after contacting the rehome lady at the Sphynx Cat Association - It took so long that when we were emailed 6 month after contact with a cat to adopt, I had forgotten I'd even written the email to the SCA!! Good things come to those who wait! I truly believe that we were meant to have Ally (or that he was meant to have us?!) if anyone has expressed interest to me about getting a sphynx I always refer them to rescue centres, rehome contacts, and breeders often retire young cats and 'rehome' those as well. Our younger sphynx, Noodle, came from a fab breeder but mummy cat had chewed on her ears, tail and back so she looks a bit odd compared to a show cat - as she was 'damaged' and couldn't be sold as a breeding cat either, she was essentially a 'rehome' as well. we love her just as much as Al, if not more for her elf-cat ears!

    hi Jenny, thanks for that but we're not looking now as we already have Al and Noodle!! :) I just liked that people do try to rescue / rehome first rather than buying a perfect kitten from a breeder! thought i'd air my views and share my experience lol. we essentially rehomed both of our sphynx , one from the SCA and another as an odd one from a breeder, both are amazing and wouldn't change them for the world! thanks for the advice tho :)
