Sphynx Kittens and Cats for Sale

The Sphynx cat (not to be confused with the sphinx, which was a mythical beast!) is a very distinctive, relatively new breed, distinguished by its apparent lack of fur, although the skin is covered in an almost invisible fine down which makes the skin feel like a warm chamois leather. Like many other modern breeds, the Sphynx originated unexpectedly from a litter of kittens of totally different appearance, and in this case, a hairless male kitten (aptly given the name of 'Prune' as hairless cats tend to have wrinkles!) was born to a black and white domestic shorthair in Toronto, Canada, in 1966. As his owner was rather intrigued by the hairlessness, Prune was mated back to his mother as soon as he was old enough, which resulted in a litter of full-coated and hairless kittens, some of the latter being exported to Europe.

Sphynx History

Although hairless cats had appeared in many countries since the beginning of the twentieth century, nobody had ever pursued a breeding programme with them before. Although none of today's Sphynx are known to be directly descended from Prune, two young hairless cats called Punkie and Paloma were imported to Holland from Toronto in the 1970s by a Dutch breeder, Hugo Herenandez, and formed the basis of the Sphynx lines that we know today. The first Sphynx to arrive in the UK came from Holland in 1988, and was a four-year old female called Tulip. She lived to the grand old age of 15, and was a pioneer towards getting full recognition for the breed in Britain, as at first there were concerns about the breed not being able to cope with the British climate. Devon Rex were originally used for out crossing with the Sphynx in order to increase the very limited gene pool (and this influence can be clearly seen in the shape of the head), but this is now not permitted as it was found to cause health problems, and the only acceptable outcross in this country is the Russian Blue and the Domestic Shorthair.

Cats and Couches

by dave001

I am looking to buy a new sofa/love seat and am curious how Munchkin and Precious will react.
Precious is de-clawed but Munchkin is not and will not be as long as I have him.
Munchkin does scratch things, but not a great deal. My current couches are covered with blankets - and I don't see him scratching them.
I'd expect to be getting new cats in the future, so am trying to figure out what couch fabric is best for cats that might scratch.
I think leather is out of my price range. I'm thinking of what I can only think might be called "traditional" fabric, and then micro fiber

Price of Munchkin Cats in India..?

I wanna know if I can find a Munchkin Cat in Chennai.
And if yes I wanna know it's price.

Just Google TICA breeders Munchkin and where you live. I doubt it as that's a new breed with few breeders and only TICA that recognizes it. If you do find a breeder you're looking at a MINIMUM of a $1,000 for a kitten - more if they're the only breeder in the country.

Why you want to condone the breeding of dwarfism in cats? Are you not aware of all the horrible backyard breeders now trying to do this and ending up with horribly deformed cats that either end up euthanized or dumped at a shelter? I've seen some of them at the one I volunteer at. It's not pretty.
