Below are photos and information about all the females in our breeding program. We find it necessary for each of our queens to be independently spoiled and therefore many of them live with friends and family as noted below.

HCM In the Sphynx

ALL Responsible Sphynx breeders of the world should be aware of the risk of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) in the sphynx breed.  We feel that all sphynx cats that are part of a breeding program should be tested, at a minimum, yearly and sometimes twice a year.

Because HCM is in pedigrees of virtually all sphynx, we feel that that it is very important to breed cautiously.  How do we do this?  First, we feel it is extremely important to carefully study pedigrees and data regarding HCM occurances in the lines before planning on breeding.  A high inbreeding co-efficient, with HCM prevalant in the lines can be very risky.  Secondly, there are some breeding guidelines published by Pawpeds.org.  Although these were developed for the Maine Coon, we feel that these guidelines are AT A BARE MINIMUM, something to consider and practice.

Normal Heart:

Cats with a normal heart status according to a test and without any close relatives* diagnosed with HCM can of course be used in breeding from a HCM point of view.

Diagnosed with HCM:
Cats diagnosed with HCM of any degree should not be used in breeding.

Equivocal:
If the cat was younger than 2 years of age when the test was done it is not recommended to use this cat for breeding.  Instead another test should be done when the cats is older than 2 years.

*Close Relatives*

*Close relative has been diagnosed with HCM, the heart is normal on the cat itself when the cat is younger than 2 years:
These cats are not recommended to be used in a breeding programme until it has been approved for breeding after another test at the age of 2.

*Close relative has been diagnosed with HCM, the heart is normal on the cat itself at the age of 2-3 years:
If the cat still has shown no sign of HCM at the age of 3 the cat can be used in a breeding programme. It should however preferably be mated to a cat which is a risk free partner (not equivocal or cat with a close relative* diagnosed with HCM).
