My cats are brought up in my home and have the freedom to go where they please. When my queens are nursing, they are kept separate in the house so that they can focus on their kittens. Even when in the Maternity, all my cats and kittens receive the attention and affection they require daily (multiple times a day). Part of my breeding program also includes donating blood samples to a university currently trying a genetic test for HCM. I have always loved all animals. When I was a teenager, I also volunteered at the Montreal S.P.C.A and in the pet therapy department at the Douglass hospital. Caring for Cats and Dogs has been a family tradition.

FAQs when considering Sphynx Cats
How much do Sphynx Cats cost in Quebec?
As a sought-after breed, Sphynx Cats for sale in Quebec cost between $1,500 and $4,000. A cat’s price is based on its pedigree, coat quality, age, health and vaccination history. If an Sphynx Cat’s parents are show-winning, they can be even more expensive.
Do Sphynx cats require special care?
While Sphynx cats do not have fur, they still require regular grooming to maintain good skin health. Because they lack fur, their skin is more exposed and vulnerable to environmental factors, so it’s important to regularly clean and moisturize their skin to prevent irritation or infections. Sphynx cats may also require regular ear cleaning to prevent wax buildup, and it’s important to provide them with a warm and comfortable environment as they may be more sensitive to cold temperatures. Additionally, Sphynx cats may require more frequent bathing than other breeds, as they do not have fur to absorb natural oils and may become greasy or dirty more quickly.
