The Sphynx breed has a lot of love to give. They are incredibly affectionate creatures, absolutely love attention and do well with children and other animals. They constantly are at your side or craving a warm crevice next to you on the couch. They will pursue their needs for attention most of the time. As most people know, cat watching is a great excuse to do nothing and the Sphynx breed has incredible personalities to experience. Some refer to these cats as the “dog-cat” as they will greet you at the door and also introduce themselves to your guests. When bored their mischief is on set on high and will playfully get into your household items. Sphynx cats do not like to be lonely! The kitten of your choosing will soon become your shadow and best furless friend. If you want to come home to a creature that will shower you with love, this breed is the fit for you!
Frequently Asked Questions
I am a small, Southern California Sphynx Cattery for fun. My goal is to create positive relationships with my clients and spread the joy and love my Sphynx babies have given me and my family! Many hours go into the attention and care for each and every kitten, rest assured they are smothered with love from the moment they make their arrival into this world. Lucy and her mates are regularly health checked to ensure the healthiest of kittens.
Despite their alien like, sometimes grumpy faces the Sphynx breed are extremely loving! Each Sphynx has a bursting personality that is always ready to shine. They are very playful, attention seeking creatures. Sphynx cats are very loyal as your lap, shoulders and legs and any other body part they can use as their throne are simply their property! Despite what you might have heard Sphynx cats are very trainable. As a foster mom prior to breeding, my first Sphynx boy comes to momma as soon as he hears his name called. Unless it’s bath day, then it’s a search and seizure!
Lucy’s Littles start at $2,100 and can range up to $2,600. Each kitten is uniquely featured in their own way. Pricing varies on eye color, body color/wrinkles and either traditional or elf ears. All Lucy’s kittens come spayed or neutered, I do not sell breeding rights. A $500 non-refundable deposit is required at time of reservation of your kitten and signing of contract. This deposit goes towards the total price of your kitten and deposits begin when the kittens are 4 weeks of age. The remaining balance is due at time of pick up.
Sphynx as we all know are hairless, so their body oils are not soaked up by the hair as on your typical domestic cat. You always want your angel baby looking sophisticated and their best so regular cleaning is prudent! Our adults and kittens are weekly bathed with either Dawn dish soap or Johnson’s baby soap. You can of course do your own research on a brand that suits your kitten, this is what I use before you take your new baby home. Their ears require cleaning the wax and oil build up with q-tips. You don’t want to go too deep into their ear canal but you do want to clean as much as possible of what’s visible to the eye. You can also use q-tips to clean their eye boogies, be very gentle as to not irritate or cause excessive dryness. The nail beds are very important to clean as they carry the most bacteria, as you know cats dig and cover when using their litter box so once a week bathing is highly suggested as to avoid any potential illnesses. Sphynx more than any other breed of cat are experts at holding litter in those little shovels they call feet! Scrub in between their toe beans with the soap advised or researched, and once dry clip the sharp end of their nails. Q-tips are going to be a necessity in your home as it’s best to use them as well in the crevices of their nail sheaths to remove the fecal and oil build up.
Sphynx cats are not hypoallergenic as you would think. All cats produce Fel d 1 protein meaning there is technically no such thing as allergen-free or hypoallergenic cats. However the Sphynx breed is great for you if you have allergies to your typical domestic cats as they do not carry it in their fur. The saliva of the Sphynx is typically where they would carry the allergen that could affect you however the reaction can be minimal in comparison. They also carry it in their dander but if you are correctly caring for your Sphynx and regularly bathing once a week (please see our Sphynx Care tab above) you can prevent most allergic reactions.
It’s our home, so in the event an appointment is necessary all appointments must be scheduled in advance with the breeder. How to reach the breeder is listed below.
Your new baby will be ready between 13 and 16 weeks. We ensure they are healthy enough to endure their spay/neutering appointment and vaccinations prior to going home with you.
We do NOT recommend declawing your cats. It is an unnecessary surgery that provides no medical benefit to your Sphynx. The Humane Society of the United States also opposes declawing except in rare cases when it is necessary for medical purposes. Declawing is not a quick fix for unwanted scratching. If you are properly caring for your Sphynx (please see our Sphynx Care tab above) you are recommended to clip your Sphynx nails once a week at bath time. Declawing your Sphynx can make them less likely to use the litter box or more likely to bite, it can also cause long lasting physical problems for them. If you are not aware of the traditional process of declawing it involves the amputation of the last bone of each toe. If a human was to be “declawed” it’s not as simple as trimming the nails, it would be like cutting off each finger at the knuckle! Sphynx as mentioned on our site before, are easily trainable, you can teach them to use their claws in a way everyone in the home can be comfortable.
