July 18, 2007: When I think of a Sphynx.
A Sphynx is a cat,
a quite mysterious breed....
and if you don't believe that,
I have proof of it indeed!
The story begins in Egypt,
as this papyrus clearly shows.
She is every bit fantastic
from her head down to her toes!
A mighty ancient sentinel
gazing out across the sands.
On duty still today... fulfilling
a young cats dreams so grand!poem by Miss Peach >(^,^)< This is LIZA, she belongs to my friend Diana Nelson! LIZA is #2 Sphynx Premier in CFA nationwide! Someday I hope for a kitten:)

According to the CFA (Cat Fanciers' Association) what breeds can be used as outcrosses when breeding Sphynx?
Breeders in Europe and North America have bred the Sphynx to normal coated cats and then back to hairless for more than thirty years. Hairless cats found in recent years in domestic cat litters are still being used in Sphynx breeding programs to expand the gene pool. Britanya Cattery has been using a hairless cat's offspring found in Texas. Donna Roberds of Kattewyk Cattery has been using a hairless cat found in Arkansas. A breeding between these two cats produced extremely hairless offspring. Two hairless cats found in Indiana are reportedly being used in other Sphynx breeding programs.
Until when can these breeds be used? Until December 30, 2010
Sphynx were at one time crossbred with Devon Rex in an attempt to strengthen the gene, but unfortunately this led to serious dental or nervous-system problems and is now forbidden in most breed standards associations. The only allowable outcross breeds in the CFA are now the American Shorthair and Domestic Shorthair. Other associations have different rules. In Europe mainly Devon Rex has been used for outcrosses.
In Europe, what breed has been used most often as an outcross? The Devon Rex

Oh my gosh Caylynn! Come see what happened to Dragonheart!!
Mr Mills!!! What did you do to my poor sweet kitty boy?
I put some of your sunscreen on him so he wouldn't get a sunburn...
That wasn't sunscreen!! It was wrinkle remover!
Well not only did it remove ALL of his wrinkles, it removed HALF of Dragonheart too!!
