Wifey wants a bald ***** !!! (sorry)
« on: 05/09/2006 17:33:47 »
Wifey wants one of these because she is allergic to cat hair....they're so cute !!..look at those ears !!...trouble is...they're about 500...(almost $1000)...and I know I'll have to buy two !!.......anybody got experience with these Sphynx cats ?

By the way...we are cat lovers and ex-owners..(exchanged pets for four children instead !!).just never had a bald cat before. (well..not that kind of bald pu....STOP IT THERE NEIL !!!:D) .

........apparently they feel like a hot suede water bottle and need bathing once a week (cripes...and there I was thinking my once a month shower was over doing it ! :D

Actually, I have also found out that these cats may not be a cure for people who are allergic to cat hair !!...anybody know why ?





 


It's sooooooooooooo cute !!

I was a little disappointed to find this is all about cats :( ;)

I have no idea when it comes to Sphynx cats but they do ----> http://www.catteries.org.uk/Sphynx.htm  

Some days it's not even worth knawing at the straps

I think it's because it's not the actual hair but the small particles of shed skin that are allergenic.

THANK GAIA...I will do some more research into it.I appreciate greatly your advice. We'll soon find out if she's allergic because we'll be visiting the breeder and we'll spend some time with the cats...

DAN...sorry to disappoint you chum....That's a cool website link..THANK YOU.

In fact...the photos above were sent to me by a local breeder (local to moi of course) which I obtained from another website...most people were quoting 950...but I think they were pedigrees....

No worries ;)

I like the top pic of the cat, that one looks cute, the other one I'm not too sure about. Although it's all about the ears, they're wicked. :)

Is crazy how much it costs for certain pets. Our Dog was a pedigree, but we got him for free as he was a rescue dog. Luckily he wasn't stuck up or anything like that ;)

Not a dumb question at all.  I was wondering the very same thing.  This is what I've found thus far.

I'm still not feeling very bright, cause I'm just not getting the connection with the earlier post this was in.  And, I seem to be babbling - again.

Thank you so much for clearing that up Gaia.  That makes more sense than a concrete tool and definately describes George.  Have you spoken with him?  Is his internet back up?
