Has anyone ever bought any animals from "blondie"? I found her online and she is selling "pet Sphynx" kittens spayed for $1000 and "show sphynx" kittens for $1500. Does anyone know of "blondie" or if she is trustworthy? Or do you know if cats can't be spayed to be in a cat show? I want a Sphynx that we can enter in cat shows. If they can be spayed whats the bennifit of buying a "show Sphynx" insted of a cheaper "pet Sphynx"? Well, thanx for any help. Little Lady :)
Here is the problem; show animals and pet animals can be very different in quality, or there can be one small thing that may render them unsuitable for show.
You can spend a whole lot of money running the latter to shows then around show rings and all you end up with is a smaller bank account. That gets really tired after awhile.
Most people want to show an open cat to make it more desireable for breeding. Think long and hard before you decide you want an intact male spraying your house and advertizing to the world he is there, including the neighbourhood toms who feel the need to respond in kind. The queens aren't a picnic either, coming into season 8 months of the year, sometimes never going out except when they are bred. A motivated queen can squeeze through a mail slot and your purebred is now carrying a litter of worthless mongrel kittens if she survives.
Get a real name from this blondie person and then find out what she has accomplished that would qualify her to grade kittens for show. Then you need to talk to her vet and to people who have bought kittens from her.
Is her cattery open or closed (does she allow cats that do not belong to her to come in for breeding or does she buy cats from other breeders), does she test for FLV, FIP, or Chlamydia?
What kind of guarantee does she offer and how well does she honour her guarantees? GET REFERENCES and CHECK them!!
"show an open cat"? What???? Wait...soo are you saying you can have a spayed cat in cat shows? If the cat can be spayed that is definatly what I would do becouse I am not intrested in breeding cats. Thank you soo much for the information but I don't know much of the "cat talk". Lol! ;) I am having a little trouble finding the "perffect cat" to, I am use to just going to a shelter and picking out a cute kitty!
The feline associations have an alter class where the cat can achieve its championship and grand championship, while altered. Great for retired cats, novices, or cats who you don't want to breed for various reasons.
