Feel free to contact us at any time for any additional questions!
How much does a kitten cost?
Sphynx Haus kittens cost $2400, regardless or color, coat or eye color. We charge a $500 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit once you choose your kitten that goes towards the remaining balance when it is time to pick up your new baby and take them home.
Do you offer a discount?
Yes! Sphynx are a very social breed and do better in pairs. We offer a $200 discount on a sibling from the same litter, or if you rescue a kitten from your local shelter within one month of getting your new sphynx kitten. We are proud supporters of our local rescue and have two resident rescues as well!
Will you ship?
No, we do not ship our kittens. While our preference is for you to come pick up your kitten, we do offer delivery services. We will personally fly out to you with your kitten sitting at our feet in the main cabin and meet you at your local airport for an additional fee.
When can my kitten come home?
We allow kittens to go to their new homes at 14-16 weeks, no exceptions. At this age, our kittens are able to receive their full course of immunizations and their spay/neuter. Their immune systems are also better developed and no longer reliant on their Maternally Derived Immunity. This gives them time to mature and become well socialized as well. We know, as much as you'd like to have your kitten sooner to give them time to bond to you, we can assure you that your new baby will warm up to you in no time! Most kittens who are separated from their mothers too early often develop health problems or behavioral issues that could include, but not limited to, anxiety, aggression or inappropriate bathroom use (ie, outside the litter box). This is a strict policy we have that is in the best interest of the kitten.
What comes with my new kitten?
All Sphynx Haus kittens will come spayed/neutered with complete veterinary records, vaccinations and 30 days free pet insurance provided by Trupanion. Along with this, your kitten will also come with a blanket with mother's scent to ease transitioning, a shirt handmade by me, a sample of food, and your kitten's favorite toys. We also offer lifetime support. We will always be here to answer any questions you may have and we love seeing pictures of our babies in their new homes as well!
Can I visit in person?
Due to our strict biosecurity practices, we are only allowing visitors once kittens have received their first set of vaccinations. Kittens are typically reserved by this time, however, we are happy to video chat with you prior to reserving your kitten. There will also be many opportunities to video chat and see your kitten as well as frequent photo updates.
Where is Sphynx Haus located?
We are a small cattery based in Lawrenceville, GA, about 30 minutes Northeast of Atlanta.
Do you sell breeding rights or stud services?
No. We do NOT sell breeding rights or offer stud services. Please do not ask.
Are sphynx hypoallergenic?
No! There is no such thing as a hypoallergenic cat! While sphynx do not have fur, they still produce dander and groom themselves like any other cat. Allergies come from the proteins in cat dander and saliva. While some cat-allergic people have had successes with having a sphynx in their home, I can never guarantee it. We also do not allow visitors in our home to "test" if they are allergic because we have a resident furry that would make the "test" invalid.
We have had a few success stories with immunotherapy. Inquire with your allergist to see if you would be a good fit.
Is it true sphynx need weekly baths?
Absolutely not! Please do not bathe your kitten once a week. The more you bathe your sphynx, the more oils they will produce resulting in an oily cat that leaves oil stains on your sheets and furniture. We only recommend bathing your sphynx when they get into something that makes them dirty, like any other pet. The only weekly maintenance we recommend are nail trims and ear cleaning.
Do sphynx get cold easily?
They do get cold faster than your average furry. Because of this, they do need to eat more as they burn a lot more calories just keeping themselves warm. While not necessary, we do suggest having a heated cat pod. We use the one found here. Your kitty will otherwise find warm spots such as a sunny windowsill or your bed under your blanket when they aren't running around your house like a madman.
