Do you see those background pictures of my first Sphynx? His name was Dee-Lo. All of this is do to this little guy!!!
Dee-Lo was already a miracle kitten as his mom had a hard time birthing and couldn't milk the babies. Luckily, the breeder had another queen who was nursing her litter and allowed him and his sister to milk from her.
Dee-Lo was the most special addition to the animal family here. He had loving from 3 dogs and a mean tabby cat not to mention us as well his human Sphynx slaves.
Sadly, Dee-lo passed away exactly 1 month before his 4th birthday due to HCM. This was very hard on me. Due to this, all my cats will be tested for HCM as well as all other important tests prior to breeding and scanned yearly for HCM from a Veterinary Board Certified Cardiologist.
My cats are brought up in my home and have the freedom to go where they please.
When my queens are nursing, they are kept separate in the house so that they can focus on their kittens. Even when in the Maternity, all my cats and kittens receive the attention and affection they require daily (multiple times a day).
Part of my breeding program also includes donating blood samples to a university currently trying a genetic test for HCM.
I have always loved all animals. When I was a teenager, I also volunteered at the Montreal S.P.C.A and in the pet therapy department at the Douglass hospital. Caring for Cats and Dogs has been a family tradition.
