I am so excited you're here! Our mission is to promote this highly affectionate and intelligent breed and at the same time, make these beautiful and unique kittens available for adoption to loving families like yours. We are choosy; just as you should be when selecting a Sphynx breeder. As responsible breeders we make great effort to provide the best nutrition, veterinary care and social training for all our kitties.
We are a proud member of TICA, The International Cat Association and regularly participate in many of their shows. Our cats have won many awards; Julius, most recently becoming a Supreme Grand Champion, earned Best in Show during the Skyway Cat Club Show held in Florida. We invite you to check out our Queens + Sires page to learn more about each of our cats' temperament and some of the awards they have earned.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most commonly diagnosed cardiac disease in cats. HCM is a disease of the heart muscle in which the walls thicken and the heart enlarges. This decreases the heart's efficiency and sometimes creates symptoms in other parts of the body.
Although the cause of HCM has not been clearly identified, the fact that the condition is more prevalent in certain breeds (including Maine Coon, Ragdoll, British Shorthair, Sphynx, Chartreux and Persian cats) and that mutations of several cardiac (heart) genes have been identified in some cats with this disease suggests that genetics plays a role.
We test for HCM to ensure we are breeding healthy cats. We begin by checking our pedigrees and take a proactive approach by scanning our breeding cats regularly at a board certified cardiologist.
Cats are predators. They are obligate carnivores, meaning that their nutritional needs are met by eating a diet that consists of animal-based proteins. We feed our cats a diet that is modeled on what they would eat in the wild as it benefits them in several ways:
* Improved Digestion
* Greatly reduced stool odor and volume
* Increased energy
* Healthy weight
* Better dental health
* Better urinary health
Did you know cats have no requirement for carbohydrates and have a limited ability to digest them? Because cats evolved eating a diet with almost no carbohydrates, they only have one enzyme system capable of handling carbohydrates. This is very different than humans and dogs who have multiple enzyme systems for carbohydrate digestion.
We highly recommend you watch Dr. Karen Becker's video discussion, Raw Food Diet to learn more about a proactive and integrative wellness approach to feeding your cat.
