OUR KINGS AND QUEENS

​We at Little Sphynx Cattery put our cat’s needs first and we want you to do the same!
To guarantee the well-being of our kittens, our Kings and Queens undergo a rigorous selection process. They are meticulously screened and cleared of over 40 different genetic predispositions through DNA testing. We also conduct annual screenings for HCM by a board-certified cardiologist, ensuring the cardiac health of our cats. Furthermore, all our feline companions are tested and confirmed negative for FeLV/FIV.
All adults are HCM DNA tested, as well as PCR tested, as needed. It's a huge joy owning one of the world’s most lovable cats.

MAIHA

I'm over the moon about this absolutely stunning girl that has joined our cattery. Believe it or not Maiha is a Sphynx!

All the accredited feline associations allow American Shorthair as a permissible outcross for the Sphynx. Few breeders do it as it is costly financially, but the diversity and health a carefully chosen outcross can bring is priceless. We are not creating a new breed, we are bringing the cat back to the Sphynx standard while infusing it with hybrid vigor. 


Maiha’s lineage is like royalty - multiple international winners on both sides. Maiha’s dad is Franklin aka IW SGC IW BW SGC Mowglis Rockets Red Glare. Her Grandfather, IW BW SGC Mowglis Stonehenge won Kitten of the Year and was also Shorthair cat of the year. Not only are they beautiful but they have been fully health tested as well. Heart scans, DNA disease clear. Thank you to Emily Greene, Destyny Sphynx.
 

Responsible outcrossing is encouraged!
American Shorthair, Devon Rex & Domestic Shorthair are all acceptable outcrosses for the Sphynx breed.

What it looks like:
DSH/ASH x Sphynx= F1 - All kittens will have hair, but will carry the hairless gene.
F1 x Sphynx=F2 - 50% of the kittens will have hair and 50% will be hairless.
F2 x Sphynx=F3 - Kittens should be hairless, but a hairy one may sneak in.
F3 x Sphynx=F4 - A TICA/CFA accepted sphynx kitten is born.

With the first outcross generation, all of the kittens will look like ordinary cats, but all of the litter will carry the hairless gene. The best kitten out of this litter will be bred to a Sphynx again which produces the F2 kittens. There is a 50% chance of getting bald kittens and some adorable hairy ones. One of these naked kittens is bred to a Sphynx. This should result in all naked kittens in a litter. 

Although, sometimes breeders will chose to keep a furry kitten from this litter, due to good type and build of the cat. DSH - Domestic Shorthair ASH - American Shorthair F - Filial. Refers to the generation of the cat. F1, F2, F3.
