IN THE NEWS! ... check out the kittens page to see who Skinzin Velcro now proudly owns!

About Skinzin:  I have been actively breeding and showing Sphynx in The Cat Fanciers' Association since 2003.  Prior to 2003, I raised Burmese cats under the name of Panthat, with my friend, and mentor, Karen Thomas, DVM, who has been raising Sable Burmese for over 40 years http://www.panthat.com/

I am proud to say that I have bred 27 Grand Champions (granding 28 counting cats from other catteries), a Global Breed Winner, and and 3 National Winners. Both my cattery foundation queens have received the title of Distinguished Merit based on the number of grand champions they have produced.  Le L'Amitie Amenhotepsat of Skinzin, DM is the 2nd Sphynx in The Cat Fanciers Association to receive this title.  Additionally, Skinzin Sphynx is proud to announce the first Skinzin bred cat to receive the title of Distinguished Merit.  The award for this coveted title is for GC Skinzin Pillow Talk of Mericat.  She received this title in show year 2010-2011.

Please look at my cattery Awards page to see this, and other, awards. 

 

About Me:  I began in the cat fancy the same way many do.  I always had cats prior to breeding them.  Becoming a breeder, and having a Sphynx cattery was not something I planned to do.  But I was captivated by the sweet personality and look of the Sphynx.  Their inquisitive personalities, and stunning beauty charmed me from the beginning.  See photo show here.

The goal of Skinzin Sphynx Cattery is to produce happy, healthy Sphynx kittens that closely meet my interpretation of the CFA Sphynx Breed Standard.  All my breeder, and retired cats receive annual cardiac ultrasounds.  These ultrasounds are given by a board-certified, licensed veterinary cardiologist, to ensure the best accuracy possible for diagnoses of any problem, including hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a degenerative heart condition which is inherited in some Sphynx lines.  This is a practice that I encourage all breeders to invest in if they are to raise healthy lines.  All we can do is our very best by the breed so that you, the pet owner, receive a pet that will live a long and healthy life and provide you with the companionship you desire.

My concern with heart-health in Sphynx Cats resulted in my becoming the Key Coordinator for Sphynx HCM Research.  We now have a grant for DNA research, and Dr. Kate Meurs with North Carolina State University, with the help of The Winn Feline Foundation, is working hard to find the genetic marker on the DNA of the Sphynx Cat for this condition.  We are hopeful that this research will contribute to the elimination of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in the Sphynx Breed with a simple blood test.  For more information about this research, please go to http://www.sphynxbc.org/, and click on "Health Research."  If you have any questions for Skinzin Sphynx Cattery, please do not hesitate to email me or give me a call. 

I hope you will enjoy visiting the Skinzin Cattery website!

WARNING KITTEN SEEKERS!!!!!

There are Sphynx catteries in our area, and all around the United States, that are breeding high volumes of kittens, not in keeping with humane standards of health and quality.  The Sphynx cat is a highly exploited breed.  Please do your research before committing to a kitten purchase from any Sphynx cattery! 

Here at Skinzin Sphynx Cattery, we feel that Health, Temperament, and Type are all significant issues which should be addressed in a good breeding program.  Health, being the number ONE issue, includes not only good feline husbandry on the part of the individual cattery, but also acquiring knowledge as to the genetics of each individual cat used in the breeding program, along with their coefficients for line breeding.

Please feel free to contact me for more information with regards to good Sphynx cattery husbandry, which includes inoculations against Feline Rhinotracheitis (feline herpes), Panleukopenia, and Calici, and microchipping.

Skinzin Sphynx Cattery is a CFA CATTERY OF EXCELLENCE.  Click here to see what it means to be a CFA CATTERY OF EXCELLENCE at http://www.cfa.org/cattery-environment.html.  Do your research... and see how few Sphynx Catteries bear this badge of honor.

I never thought I would enjoy the Litter-Robot as much as I do!  Being a breeder, I have tried all sorts of automatic boxes, and none of them worked efficiently.  With five cats in the house, I have 2 of them and, my cats LOVE them.   I am assured that my cats always have a scooped box they can enjoy doing their business in!  And when its time to change my litter out, all I have to do is press a button and all the older litter dumps into the receptacle, I pull out the bag, and replace it with a new one.  What could be easier?

Now I also have an additional Litter-Robot in my boys' room, and they all enjoy using it.  Thanks to Litter-Robot, my "cattery" chores have been made simpler, giving me more time to smooch on my cats!
