We are a small cattery breeding purebred Sphynx cats in Washington State
We have over a decade of experience showing/breeding cats
We are also on FB and IG!
Thank you for visiting our page! Feel free to look around as we have a lot of information available!
My husband and I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, about an hour south of Seattle, WA. We had bred and shown Bengals cats for nearly a decade before we moved to Sphynx. We now have about 15 years of breeding experience behind us. ♡
We of course, share our home with Bengal cat pets but no longer breed them. We are still involved in Bengal Cat Rescue and can recommend great breeders if asked. (Check out PNW Bengal Rescue!)
Almost 9 years ago now, we fell in love with a friend's litter of little "naked alien cats" and our sons have always loved visiting the Canadian Sphynx booths at cat shows. We brought home a female kitten as a pet initially. After doing a lot of research, attending shows (on the naked side) to learn more about our breed standard, and having necessary genetic health screening done we decided to have a Sphynx litter.... Needless to say, we were hooked.
We now have a small program of Canadian Sphynx cats and hope to breed amazingly sweet, awesomely healthy, stunningly gorgeous and surprisingly unique kittens for people to share their lives with.
Every adult cat here is scanned yearly at a veterinary cardiologist for HCM by a feline cardiologist and always before breeding.
We have DNA genetic screenings done on all our cats through Optimal Selection (Wisdom)- this may include testing for PKD and PRA, CMS, Blood Typing, Color Panel and the Sphynx/Devon Coat panel.
There is also a NEW HCM DNA test through NC State Veterinary Genetics Lab as of December 2020 for a mutation thought to be responsible for approximately 60% of the cases of HCM in Sphynx cats. All our cats, past and present are being tested for the gene mutation.
We have two children and of course a clowder of cats that help us in raising each litter with lots of love and attention.
We do not have kittens year-round and believe in quality not quantity. Our Sphynx get our full attention and unless we are rescuing, they are the only breed we work with.
We do not offer mixed designer breeds (elf, bambino, dwelf) as we do not believe in breeding multiple genetic mutations. Risking the cats health and welfare simply for aesthetic reasons and to gouge pet owners on cost is simply not what we personally believe in. These designer breeds are not accepted by TICA or CFA and cannot be shown or papered, they are only recorded as experimental.
We also prioritize our queens welfare and ensure they're not being overbred and continue to produce healthy kittens while remaining spoiled themselves. They are our pets or show queens first, breeders second. We often have a waiting list simply because we don't have kittens year round and a lot of our pet buyers become extended family and return for another MightyBare kitten.
Our next litter expected is expected January 2022-please read kitten page for information or go to:KITTENS!!
