Are sphynx cats hypoallergenic?


No, the kittens are not completely hypoallergenic (no breed out there is), but they are likely the closest you will get to hypoallergenic. Fel d1 is the primary allergen present in cats and kittens. The Fel d 1 protein is produced largely in their saliva and sebaceous glands on their skin. Not having hair means that there's less of a chance of air particles with the dried Fel d1, this makes them much more tolerable than a cat that sheds hair.




Does Scheherezade Sphynx Cattery screen for HCM?


Yes, I have been breeding sphynx cats for over 22 years. We have worked with the same lineages since the beginning. These lines go back to the original, foundation sphynx. Many of our cats are over 15 years old. We have parents, grandparents, great grandparents and so on! This way we know first hand what is behind our cats genetic lines. We work very hard to keep them clean from any line that is riddled with HCM.




Does Scherezade Sphynx Cattery sell cats for breeding?


No, we are very protective of our cats’ lineage. There are very few sphynx lineages that are descendants of the original sphynx.
