Hi Susan I just wanted to thank you for providing me with such a lovely kitten. Edgar is great! He doesn't quite like the dog yet - my dog tends to be of the too happy, too licky kind. I'm sure they'll get along after a few days. What else can I say Edgar is absolutely beautiful and even though I've just been with him for a few hours I can tell he's going to be a silly kitty.

This little guy arrived yesterday after a long flight and it didn't take him long to find a new friend. 

Jan 13, 2017

Hi Susan, three years has passed since I got pink from you and I just thought that you would love to see what she looks like at three years old. She is beautiful, wonderful, loveable ,passionate and the most adorable Little girl.Thank God she is very healthy, eats very well, and I absolutely love her.
I am glad you are still in the business of breading these beautiful Sphynx cats.
By the way pink thanks you for sending her to such an amazing home!
Best regards, Roz

Hi

I wanted to send you an update on our beautiful, seal point, Abbi. She was from a July 23rd 2015 litter that we received last October.

Abbi rules the roost! She's healthy, despises her vet, hates the car, dislikes bathing and refuses our efforts to keep her hygiene regular. That said, she sucks it all up like a champ. Her vocals are much the same as a Siamese and she chirps when spoken to. She adores her housemate and best friend, Tau, she loves chasing fast bugs and stealing items that fit in her mouth so that she can hide them and/or play with them later. Her favorite spot is on top of the keurig where she warms her butt or on top of the water cooler so she can watch the bubbles.

She is spoiled, loved and hilariously naughty! We can't imagine being without her.

Hi Susan,
This is Nina. I got my Harper from you back in March.
I just wanted to reach out to you again to tell you how much I absolutely adore her!
She is perfect for me. I am on disability and have hurt my back so badly that back surgery is imminent. I don't have a lot of mobility and I spend a lot of time alone. All I wanted was a cat companion. And that's exactly what I have: My sweet girl is happy just being beside me. I take her wherever I go; and wherever I am, she is NEVER more than 10 feet away. She sleeps beside me every night, moving her body usually so that her head is touching mine as we fall asleep. She is more loyal than any animal that I have ever owned. She is so smart and has the sweetest, most loving temperament. She sits on her blanket beside me quietly in the car
She is hilarious and mischievous, which is a quality I REALLY wanted, and has to check out everything (and try to play with it, if possible!).
With my sister's 2 older cats, she has been a little shit-disturber and it makes me laugh because she has this idea about herself that she's a big, tough kitty; while really she's such a tiny, little one, whose meows are more like cute, little squeaks!
Anyway, I have been meaning to say this for awhile. Thank you so much for bringing us together! I sing your praises every chance I get! I love my Sphynx's much. I don't know what I would ever do without her. She is my treasure❤️
 

 
September 11, 2016:

I just have to thank you again.  She is doing great and she is such an amazing little cat.  She loves it here and she makes people and animals alike love her.  She is still a little hesitant with our boxer that won't quit kissing her but other than that she's having a great time!!  She's the most affectionate and playful kitty I ever met.

September 11, 2016: 

Thank you for everything.   Also we just love him.  Misty.

Hey,
I just wanted to thank you for my little baby Oscar. He settled into his new home with no issues, plays with ABSOLUTELY everything, loves his new brother Oliver (who's a Boston Terrier) and loves to run around like lightning.  His little personality is amazing too!  He's so affectionate, LOVES to snuggle, he's corky and does little jumps/hops while running and is the boss of the dog.   THANK YOU so much for him! Joshua

Hello Susan

We just wanted to give you an update as to how Pharaoh is doing.  He is had brought so much joy to our family!  My son absolutely adores him and thanks us continually for getting him.  We cannot thank you enough for him and your dedication to the breed is very evident when you see Pharaoh's beauty and personality.  He is the most loving and affectionate cat we have ever seen.

Hi Susan,
I just wanted to let you know that little Oliver is adjusting well to his new home. He was so great in the car on the drive home to Toronto. He is so sweet and loveable and playful; we just love him so much!  Kathy T.

Hi Susan,

Here's a picture of Caroline in her new sweater. She's done a lot in the past few days and is settling in wonderfully. She went to work with me at the clinic yesterday and got an exam by the doctor, socialized with a lot of different people and got to meet new cats. Since we are an all-cat clinic we let our boarding cats wander around freely if they like other cats. She did excellent and people were commenting on how well socialized she is. I wanted her to get used to the vet being a pleasant experience without getting poked with a needle every time.

She has become comfortable with and snuggles with the dogs already. Esther isn't ready to share her bed yet but she is no longer hissing at her. She spent most of today playing with toys and taking breaks to get a snack and nap on my lap. Again, thanks so much. She's just perfect in every way!

Hi Susan.  I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with my sweet little girl.  I love her more than anything else.  She stays with me all the time.  She just loves to cuddle with me.  She is very very happy and she knows she's very loved.  I absolutely adore her.  I could not have asked for a better companion.  her little sweet personality is more than I could've ever hoped for.  She is the light of my life and I can't tell you how grateful I am to you for bringing her into my life.  And well you're right, she does like her wet food boy!!  She's a pretty good leader and she's never missed Mr. litter box even once.  She's just perfect and I love her.  Just wanted to let you know.  Have a great night Susan and thank you again.  Nina

Hi Susan!  Just wanted to say hi!  My little kitten luna and I are getting along great.  She is so adorable.

January 2016

Leslie - I have gotten 2 beautiful cats from Susan.One was Barenardo,my "heart" kitty,who is now 15.Bare is a wonderful boy with the absolute sweetest disposition.He always wants to snuggle under the blankets with me .My other cat was Mini,a pretty little girl whom I sadly lost when she turned 13.I live in Nova Scotia and Susan is in Ontario.There were no problems with the shipping process at all.I still have the little plush bear that Susan sent with Barenardo in his crate.She has always been available to answer any questions I have had,and she liked to receive the pictures I would send of Bare and Mini.I would not hesitate to get another kitty from her when the time comes.

November 2015
I started my journey with Susan 3 years ago adopting a beautiful Red boy named Mr.Skins. She was always available from t...he minute I picked him up to answer any questions and concerns that I had as a new sphynx Mommy. A year and a half later I decided to adopt a little Blue girl Lil'Sis and the situation with Susan has always remained the same. Quality kittens that grow up with sophistica ted personalit ies that fit in with every family member. I would recommend her to anyone looking to adopt a sphynx cat. She is knowledgea ble, customer service based and loves what she does. It shows in the cats that she breeds that she truly cares about her babies and the families that they join. Thanks for everything Susan and I'm sure we'll get another... once you hold a sphynx you will forever long to hold another. You helped in completing our family ♡ 

 

June 29, 2015

Thank you so much Susan for taking the time with me and John when picking up our new baby girl Isis and answering all our question we had. You were the most pleasant and knowledgeable person, Isis was great on the ride home she enjoyed looking out the window and exploring in the car. She is such a cuddle bug she loves kiss and being cuddled up in her blanket and around people all the time. I give Susan credit for all the love and time she spent with these babies too make the so loveable to their new families. I would and have  recommend Susan and her cattery to anyone looking to embrace the love and affection from a Sphynx cat. Looking forward to purchasing a new baby sphynx kitten from you in the near future.
Thank you again Susan for everything..  Gwen B

May 2015
I want to let you know that she is the perfect cat. She is so good.
My husband Jim and I were talking and down the road, we are looking at 2018,
We would like to purchase another female kitten from you. When we are ready to do so 
I will send you the first installment.
I just thought you should know.

Love and Happiness Always

Hi Susan,

We just wanted to thank you again for our beautiful kitten Teddy. The car ride back from Windsor to Toronto was surprisingly easy; Teddy sitting on my lap the entire way! The minute we arrived home she was running around and exploring her new home. She is inquisitive, outgoing and doesn't seem to be afraid of anything! She is friendly to new faces and already recognizes ours. We could not be more happy and thankful to you for raising her so well. She has such an appetite and her favourite spot is perched on our shoulders. Tonight she had her first bath and it went better than expected. Teddy is truly everything we expected and more. We love her so much and she fits right into our small family.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

April 4, 2014 - Hey Susan,
Sassy Pants's mom here. Wanted to send you a new photo of our little girl.
She's been a real joy, and wonderful addition to our family; my husband and I couldn't be more pleased. We're smitten!

She's just about 9 months old now, and is quite a pretty kitty! Her markings and colouring have matured beautifully. She's the best looking Sphynx I've seen  (though perhaps I am bias!)
She's a real handful sometimes; certainly living up to her name! When she's not tearing around the house getting into everything, she's a real cuddle-bug (she's currently plying my neck with kisses, as I compose this email!) She wants to be with us all the time, "helping" with everything we do, and even perching on my shoulder, curiously looking on as I make dinner.

We're considering toilet training, any suggestions? They recommend using treats as a reward, but we've been very strict with her diet, only feeding her the vet cat food (though that doesn't stop her from trying to get at our people food!) are there any available cat treats that won't upset her delicate digestion?

Thanks for your input

- Carrie P. (and Sassy Pants)

Okay, awesome! So far he has eaten his fill, played a little, and is now settling down.

He's a huge ham, and i already know he will be spoiled. 

I already love this cat too much! You did a fantastic job raising him. I thought he'd be shy, but not at all.

Expect more questions from me, I'll need to hammer out all the details about him, especially when I get to bathe him!

Susan, we couldn't possibly be happier with Loki! He came home on
December 21, 2013 - since that day, my life has felt more complete. He
is the sweetest, most mischievous little guy ever; in fact, his
registered name is "Loki Mischief". He's strong and playful and a real
little sweetheart; he loves cuddles and kisses, and crawls into bed with
us every night. He's currently trying to make friends with our
Greyhound, and is becoming more talkative by the day. He's just
beautiful, and I feel blessed on a daily basis that he's our boy. I have
to thank you for the wonderful gift you've given my family, including
the ongoing communication. It's such a delight to know that any time I
have a question, or just want to say hi and update you, you're
available. I can honestly say that if the day ever comes that we'd like
to add to our Sphynx family, I wouldn't hesitate to give you a call!

Hi Susan:
I had Dexter scanned today for HCM.  Good news, all clear :)  The people in the clinic (in Guelph) fell in love with him.  They could not get over how kind and gentle he was.  He lay down for his scan and hammed it up for everyone when it was over.  We are so lucky to have such a great little guy. Hope all is well with you.
Take care.

Hi Susan!

I just wanted to let you know how well the (yet to be named) kitten is doing.
He has literally changed our lives, we are in LOVE.  Not only us, but the dogs love him too! He is just the sweetest, friendliest, funniest, lovable creature on the earth and we could not be more enchanted with him. He is completely fearless, completely comfortable in any situation, truly a remarkable animal.  I cannot believe I waited this long, we will never again be without a Sphynx in our family.  If our new kitten will be anything like this guy, we will be ecstatic.

Thank you so much!  Please send us some pics of the new litter once they are a little more "photogenic"!

Talk soon!
Laurie, Greg and Ciera

Hi Susan,
 
Hope you are well.
 
Just wanted to bring you up to date with my beautiful little girl.
M
I love her so much as she is a little princess and she rules.  She has adjusted so well and is just a delightful little girl.  Pink constantly jumps of the top back of the couch and attacks Torti from behind and ends up on Torti's back. Torti has given her a few little bites but nothing to damaging.  She seems to be quite gentle with Pink. But she does not like the nails of Pink stuck into her body.
 
Pink is eating like a little "OINKER".  I have switched her food up to 1 teaspoon of wet food from Hills Science Diet every day in the morning and mix up her dry food with the holistic and Science Diet Dry.  I have to feed them the wet food in separate rooms as Pink wants to eat Torti's.  Torti is  slow eater and pink gobbles her food up in a second.
 
 
Regrads,
Roz

 

Hi Susan:  April 6, 2013

Just wanted to give you an update on Dexter.  Dexter turned 2, February 14th, 2013.  We are so lucky to have him in our family.  His kind, gently manner is unmatched.  His favorite activity is to snuggle up in clothes that are just being taken out of the dryer.  He loves to eat and each morning at 6 am sharp, will kindly remind you that he is ready for breakfast.  He loves attention and will lock himself in a room if he does not feel that he is getting enough.  He knows that I will always rescue him :).  Thank you so much for being Dexter's first Mom and allowing this ray of continual sunshine to be in our life.  We are ever grateful.

Take care.

Had a great vet visit my vet is Dr. Matthew Croskery, DVM. Moe did have a ear infection so he is on zeniquin and ear drops. He did a full exam and said to compliment my breeder. He has dealt with several sphynx in his practice and was very impressed with Moe's overall health especially he was impressed at how friendly Moe was (considering all the probing he was doing in his ear and overall examination). He said Moe is obviously loved however the personality is from good breeding. He said his eyes chest skin, teeth and heart were perfect. At 8 months he weighs 4.13kgs and said he's 1 to 2 pounds overweight lol! Anyway, thanks for giving us our precious Moe. We will be following up again with him in 3 weeks. Val

Hello !!  Just want to thank you and let you know that all is well with "the boys" that were shipped to us in Seatte, WA,  in June 2008.  Mr Toad (Toadie) and Mr Bare (Barry) are ALWAYS together, and we are so glad we got them both.   Our dog is their favorite family member, they love, love, love him.  They came out of their crates from the airport, ignoring us, they  made a bee-line to our  Rottie-mix, Mr Badger,  as he was on a "down-stay" on the far side of the room.   For a long time he would just hold very still and kept looking at us for reassurance that he was doing the right thing, but now he just gives in and licks the tops of their heads. 
   Miss Mouse, our tiny 9 year old female Sphinx, is tolerant of the boys, and snuggles with them,  but goes out of her way to whack Mr Badger now and then.

I hope the holidays were good for you :)
 
I really can't thank you enough for helping me adopt the greatest cat that ever was or will be.  She's so sweet and cuddly and surprisingly trainable for a gal her age - I've taught her to sit on command and we're working on giving high-fives!  She's getting along great with the kitten I adopted, he's about 5 1/2 months old now and it's so endearing to see them play, eat and sleep together.  But - I think next time I'm in need of a companion I will definitely be calling you - I am SOOO allergic to the furry guy it's unbelievable!  He gets brushed every day, a bath once a month and I'm constantly vacuuming... but you just can't beat the convenience of not having to deal with the fur at all.
 
Hope the pictures make you smile!

Hi Susan,

Just an update to let you know how Cordelia is doing.
We are amazed at how affectionate she is and the way she always wants to be with you. My two other cats are warming up to her, and even run around and play with her on occasion.
What an awesome kitten.

Hello Susan,

As you can see, Horus is a happy and beautiful addition to the family.
He has been a joy. Comes when called by name, Is so easy to care for.
Thanks so much for him.

It is hard to believe it has been a year since I adopted Charlie.  

Just wanted to update you on how Daisy is doing.  As you know, I live and work at a boarding prep school, and Daisy is a hit with the kids!  The kids I work with are 12-18 years old, but the school has kids from Kindergarten to grade 12.  Daisy was recently the feature in a grade 3 show and tell - which she loved because all of the kids calmly lined up to pet her and give her a treat.  I often bring her with me to work, which usually involves me sitting in an office with students popping in and out for whatever reason.  Daisy has a cat tree and a bed in there and she usually can be found staring out the window or sitting on my papers.

Hi Susan


Harry and Harrison are doing great! They are happy and outgoing boys! They constantly keep us laughing and entertained with their silly antics. They are so friendly and always in the mood for a snuggle! Your ongoing support has been fantastic and very much appreciated! Thank you for everything! 

 

Hey Susan,  (July 2012)

Daisy's still doing great. She's so much fun to have, and so friendly. I took her to the shelter I volunteer at and introduced her to my literacy class. They loved her! Although, two of the six in the class think I shaved her and was playing a trick on them. That made me chuckle a little bit. (I assured them I did no such thing!)

I got a crinkley tunnel and a bunch of toys for $10 from Walmart - just an impulse buy... She loves it! She runs circles around the house and always ends up in the tunnel.

I have another goofy photo of her doing the "kitty salute" but iPhones are silly and won't send more than one picture per email so I will send that one separately following this email.

June 2012

Thank you so much for everything.  Daisy's doing great here, she's eating fine, won't stop purring and is unbelievably cuddly.  I know you told me she was a friendly girl, I had no idea she would be so loving.  I finally managed to get a picture of her! (Of course she's sleeping in it...)  I have to remember not to just sit on a blanket without checking for her wrapped up in there first.  My sister-in-law came over to visit yesterday and she loves her, thinks she's so cool and is going to talk to her boyfriend about getting a sphynx too - I have referred her to your website.

Our kitten Pasha is doing wonderfully. She was very inquisitive and friendly right from the time we got her home, and her disposition has only gotten more so. We are so in love with her.

She loves nestling in blankets on our couch to sleep at night, and otherwise prefers a lap to sit on whenever available. We have had no issues with her food or digestion and she has always used the litter pan and scratch post provided. We get the feeling she is quite intelligent, we only had to show her once.

We bathed her yesterday as she was getting quite oily, she wasn't thrilled, but suffered us doing it. She emerged much softer and pinker!

Overall we are very happy with our little darling and would be happy to be a reference for you. We will send pictures of her later today.

August 2011 From Loulou

Ren has been a wonderful addition to my family. My nephew and niece adore her and are constantly inviting their friends to play with her. The first night she was with me, she curled up under my chin, put her face on my cheek and promptly fell asleep. She's absolutely adorable!  She's very playful and super friendly and boy can she purr up a storm ! 

I had absolutely no problems getting her to use her litter. I took her to New York and she would come sit in the hotel lobby with me and was on best behaviour. She would even let me know when she needed to use her litter and wait till we got up to the room. Peoples reactions to her were brilliant! And I'm pretty sure there are a few who are now going to get a sphynx kitten after having met her. 

She's constantly wanting to cuddle and such a smart little girl. I even taught her how to kiss ! She rubs her nose on yours and sometimes gives you a quick lick ;) . She follows me everywhere around the house . . she's almost like a dog in a cats body only better. Thank you Susan, for giving me such a wonderful, beautiful , healthy, playful , adorable kitten. She's charmed the pants off everyone who's met her. 

For anyone out there thinking of getting one . . I highly recommend getting one from Susan. They're not as high maintenance as people would have you believe. Yes, you have to bath them once a week, and they are more delicate than other cats. But they're absolutely wonderful ! And Susan has been brilliant :) 

Once again, Thanks Susuan :)

Brownoser is  doing well and he is a joy to have in the house.  He has  been a wonderful addition to our family and  after 9 years of not  being able to be around a cat due to my allergies ; it so nice to be  able to  hold him and cuddle.   He is very well tempered and such a smart kitten. we have had no  issues with his litter  or him adapting to his new surroundings.   Between my son and his friends he is playful and friendly with all the children that come in and out of our house.  We are so glad we got him.. Thanks again Susan for your help and keeping us up to date with his progress when he was little... its been a pleasure to to work with you and we are so happy with our new little baby....

Thanks,

Hi Susan,

    Thank-you so much for our recent additions to our family. With us both working in the veterinary field we do see a lot of kittens. We have never been happier with the purchase of our 2 new kittens. They have been a huge pleasure for the entire family. Their health and disposition is PURR-FECT! They have brought us hours of entertainment. Your socialization before we got them is great. They are not shy or timid with company, or when we take them to work at the veterinary hospital.
    I want to Thank-you from our hearts for these two perfect angels.  I am attaching a few images we have of them and if you want we can send more as
they grow.

        Sincerely,
    Michele & Ken Langelier   May 2009
 

 

Cat named Venus

March 9, 2009

Sphynx Canada Sphynx Cattery,
 
In 2003 I bought a blue Sphynx kitten from you.  I named her Venus (for the blue planet) and purchased her as a sister to Galaxy (orange) who was 11/2 yrs older.  Susan, I want you to know of the unlimited joy that Venus brought into our lives.  I'm wheelchair bound and my husband is retired. Our cats are our everything. They rule the household.  We are here to serve them.  We have only spent one night apart from them and that was because of our granddaughter's wedding.  Even then, I had my daughter come to Orillia to cat sit them.  Our girls are exceptionally intelligent and programmed.  They know treat time, bedtime, leash time.  They have total run of the house and spend much of their time riding on someone's shoulders. We live on beautiful Lake Simcoe so they enjoy the dock, gardens, but always on a leash.  I thank you again for making our lives so much fuller.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to express my thoughts about what a great experience it has been to add a Sphynx cat into my life! I had wanted one for a while and did some research on the breed and just fell in love with them! I contacted Susan from her website and from our first contact she was friendly, professional, and available to answer all of my questions. I have also experienced the same warmth and responsiveness from her business partner, Dianne. From the outset I felt like both were completely devoted to their cats and were serious about providing the best homes for the kittens. I was fortunate enough to be chosen to be the proud owner of a white/black kitten, and all the arrangements for transporting him within the province were seamless and timely. I named my little guy Sméagol and have enjoyed every moment with him. He is a funny character - full of surprises - and keeps me on my toes. I also enjoy the warm body in bed with me!! He is a snuggler and very affectionate. I love him so much that I am about 2 months away from adding another Sphynx into our little family! I'm also getting her from Susan and Dianne - I trust them 100% with their care, breeding, and personal responsiveness and professionalism. It has been a joy from day one!

Susan,
 
I just wanted to thank you for making my experience with owning my first Sphynx
everything I thought it would be and more.  I thank you for answering the million
questions that I asked, also for your honesty on your kittens on which one would be
suited best for my family...which he certainly was, he was the perfect kitty.  I could
not ask for a better kitten, super healthy, excellent temperment, and you were a great breeder.  I would highly recommend your Cattery to anyone looking for a Sphynx,
without a doubt.  So if you are thinking of buying kitten from Susan, dont wait...because you are missing out on one of the best Sphynx kittens out there!!!!  As I know that you breed for healthy first, and that was important to me.  I am sure when the time is
right I will be back to add to my family of Sphynx's.  Thanks again for choosing Binoo for our family...we would not know what to do with out him..Sincerly yours,
 
Bobbi Jo Kromm and Binoo Kromm(I have enclosed a picture of Binoo at his finest)
