La chatterie des Sphynx

About Breeding

Breeding is a serious matter, and my goal is to produce beautiful kittens, healthy and well socialized.

  • I am a member of the Sphynx Club de France since 2007.
  • I’m working on ameliorate the breed, regularly adding new lines in the cattery to improve both standard and health.
  • My adults are yearly scanned by ultrasound at the Veterinary School of Maison-Alfort  for HCM detection (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy).
  • I am involved in research on a future DNA test for the detection of the MCH in collaboration with the French laboratory Antagene and also involved in the research of   Dr. Kate Meurs (American study).
  • I donate founds for research on MCH buying each year the  calendar created and sold by the association.
  • Studs services are not accepted, the cattery is a “closed” mainly because of health risks (disease transmission).
