Buying from a Reputable Breeder(RB's) VS Backyard Breeder(BYB's). Some simple signs to look for when buying a Sphynx kitten
1) Are the Parents of the kittens HCM scanned annually(yearly)?
*BYB's will not scan at all or try filling your head telling you HCM is a scam or even that's what their own vet stated
*BYB's will only scan their breeders once and try to claim they are a HCM scanning cattery.
*RB's will scan their Kings and Queens yearly by a Board Certified Cardiologist and continue to scan their breeders
2) Health Guarantees & HCM Guarantees
*BYB's usually only give 6-9 months or some none at all. Will not even cover HCM whatsoever
*RB's will give minimum 2 yrs for Congenital, hereditary, genetic defects plus give a HCM guarantee. I myself give 5 yrs HCM for my kittens
3) Vaccines & Vet Checks
*BYB's usually only give one set of vaccines & possibly see the vet once for a vet check or may even do vaccines at home themselves and never see a vet
*RB's will have a vet do minimum 2 set of vaccines therefore at least 2 Health checks at this point
*BYB's do not spay/neuter there kittens before leaving them as this is taking money out of their pockets.
*RB'S will spay/ neuter their kittens before leaving them as RB's want to cover these costs as well and not leave this responsibility up to new kitten parents. Plus make sure their babies are pets only and not end up in a BYB's program.
5) Age of kittens when leaving
*BYB's will let the kittens go home starting as early as 8-10 weeks old
*RB's will not let kitten go home until 12-16 weeks old, already spayed or neutered therefore now seeing a vet yet again for another vet check.
*BYB's cats are usually not registered with a recognized cat organization or they state parents are registered but kittens will not be..... that makes no sense
* RB's are registered with a cat organization TICA, CFA, CCA, CCC and most RB's show their cats
*BYB's do not have a Registered GST number and/or dont claim any income from sales of kittens to Canada Revenue and are frauding the Government, not claiming the extra money at income tax time
*RB's most have a Registered GST number and/or claim the money received for kittens to the Government
8) COST of Kitten
*BYB's Will charge anywhere from $1200-$1650 On a spay/ neuter contract with one set of vaccines. For example you bought a kitten for $1400 now you need to spay/neuter which costs btw $200-$450 do a couple more vaccines and vet checks which cost approx $75 per visit and $25-$35 for vaccines..... in the long run you have now paid $1700-$1950 & UP. Plus have a kitten with a crappy health guarantee, or god forbid die on the operating table because your vet used Ketamine on your baby, not all vets are aware of the Sphynx breed when it comes to do's & dont's!!
*RB's cost vary from $1600-1900 but your kittens come with minimum 2 sets of vaccines done by a vet, spayed/neutered, at least 3 vet checks, minimum 2 yr health guarantees for congenital, hereditary, genetic defects , 5 yrs HCM, continuous breeder support, the list goes on.....
