Improving the health of sphynx in Australia is our top priority. In February 2021 all our sphynx DNA was tested in America for the newly discovered sphynx hcm gene and in just over a year we have been able to eradicate the gene completely from our cattery. This gene is responsible for 60 percent of hcm and our cattery now will have no kittens born with this defective hcm gene which is a huge breakthrough for the lifespan of sphynx in Australia. Our Cattery is in our home and is of the highest quality. All our sphynx are respiratory PCR swabbed clear for flus/virus’s, blood tested clear of feline aids and leukaemia, DNA tested clear with orivet DNA testing and HCM tested by a cardiologist annually (last done late dec 2021). Each of our cats have their own folder with their results/pedagree and available for viewing via appointment only in our cattery.
We provide all our kittens with a contract from our solicitor stating a replacement kitten if HCM occurs within three yrs and includes many other guarantees. Once deposit is paid contract with deposit details are sent along with care instructions for a sphynx kitten to your postal address. Contract to be brought back on kitten pickup for completion. Our kittens are desexed, microchipped, wormed 3 times, vaccinated, vet checked twice by two different vets, pedagree papered into your name and are ready to leave for their new home at 12 weeks old. Kittens raised on human grade 2 star Aldi beef mince and royal canin kitten moose/buscuits. Personalised take home kitten packs can be provided at wholesale price with your kitten upon request on kitten pickup.
Once you purchase a sphynx from Furrvelvet we offer lifetime support such as advice or even if rejoining your baby is needed due to unforeseen circumstances. Please see our website to join the waitlist and your spot is only able to be secured once deposit of $500 is paid. Call any time for further information.
We also welcome visitors. Our cattery design was done with my vets assistance to ensure the long term health and happiness of my sphynx. All sphynx have there own equipment to prevent cross contamination. My cattery has three outdoor play areas, plenty of jumping shelves, temperature control gas heating, temperature control cooling, sky lights, polished concrete flooring, social play area, kitten pens etc. They are also loved by and raised with my three children, who play with all my cat before and after school. I do have a waiting list which usually sits at 3-10 months long.
