FAQ

How do I get on your waiting list?

If you would like to purchase one of our kittens please fill out our kitten application form to start the process!

We will respond about kitten availability. We do not accept fees or deposits for kittens until they have been listed and available, so we do not have an actual waiting list per say, rather an application that gives you approval to buy any kitten you choose when they are available!

How do I reserve a kitten?

Our kittens are listed around 6 to 10 weeks old when we accept deposits to reserve them. Imported kittens are typically ready to go home when listed or listed 1 week prior to being able to go home. A $400 deposit made using PayPal will reserve a kitten. The remaining balance is due in Cash only the day of pick up. PayPal payment is accepted for the remaining balance, only if it is payed 1 week prior to pick up! ( Full balance and fees are due 1 week prior to kittens being shipped.) My PayPal link will be given once you have contacted me, to make sure the kitten is still available!

What is a imported kitten?

We have our own cattery and breed cats here at Luna Kats. We have additionally established trusted relationships with catteries in Europe. Imported kittens that are here at Luna Kats come from a respected, caring and loving home environment which meet the same expectations as our own. We make these kittens available to you here at Luna Kats to give you additional availability.

What about the Health Guarantee?

All kittens sold from Luna Kats come with the same contract/genetic/health guarantee.

You also receive free 30 day pet insurance for your kitten.

Can I come visit the kittens?

 

For a multitude of reasons, We limit visits scheduled strictly for customers who have filled out our kitten application, signed our contract and placed a deposit. Visits will be limited to customers who are coming to pick up their kitten. This means kitten will be 12 weeks or older! Yes, we run a strict cattery! It does not mean we have anything to hide, it means we take the utmost precautions for our own safety of our home and the health and safety of our cats and kittens which is our #1 priority! You will be sent updates and pictures on your kitten weekly. You can contact me anytime for any questions you may have! -We do not allow visits to pick out a kitten or just to come look

at a sphynx because you have never seen one in person. -We do Not provide allergy visits, you can still be allergic to Sphynx and since our home has several cats as oppose to having one cat in the home, That alone can make a huge difference. 

When can kittens leave?

At 12 to 16 weeks old kittens can be picked up or shipped.

Kittens may appear much larger to you in pictures than they actually are in person!

Should I get 2 kittens?

We think its ideal to have at least 2 pets in the house. This gives them a companion to interact with to play, when your not home etc.

Do you have a contract & health guarantee?

Yes! We have both. Also a very strict spay/neuter contract! click here to view!

Why do I have to go to the Vet within 72 hours of picking up my kitten?

Our kittens have been examined and fecal tested by a Veterinarian before leaving our house as proof that our kittens are healthy before going home. It is your responsibility as the new owner to make sure that your kitten is healthy as well and to cover the first part of your health guarantee.

What does my kitten need at my Vet appointment?

We recommend scheduling a regular physical exam. Your kitten is up to date with vaccines at pick up and has been dewormed. Please do not over vaccinate your kitten! Follow our vaccine schedule we give you! Please, understand that the rehoming process is a stressful time for your kitten. Giving vaccines at the Veterinarian that is not needed at the time or too soon as changing an environment, could make your kitten feel lethargic and sick. Please be aware of your kittens vaccination schedule!

What about a collar? & clothes for my cat?

 

Things to keep in mind! Sphynx are indoor cats only!, My cats and kittens do not wear collars as it can be uncomfortable for them, also it can cause irritation to their skin because they do not have hair. They are not outside! A collar can be dangerous for kittens, it can become caught or hung up on something, this can severely injure or even cause them death! It would be best if you choose to keep a collar on your kitty for purposes of the bell to know where they are that you use the collar while you're at home only. As for clothes and sweaters, Some sphynx don't mind at all and others just hate it! If your cat is fine with clothes, give them breaks in between clean clothes for a few days at least! And of course clothing on your sphynx is optional! They should always have a warm place somewhere in your home.

 

Are your kittens litterbox trained?

Yes! Our kittens are completely litterbox trained here in our home before leaving.

Keep in mind when bringing your new kitten home to keep them in a bedroom size area so they are not overwhelmed or lost in your new home depending on the size. They can have an accident in this case. let them get used to there new home and surroundings for at least a few days, this way they can adjust and also easily find their box!

How often does my kitten need a bath?

What food do you feed?

We feed Royal Canin dry foods, we also feed different brands of wet / can food.

You will be told exactly what your kitten is eating! We free feed them dry food

and feed wet food 1 to 3 times a day.

How big are Sphynx cats?

You can expect your Adult Sphynx female to weigh 6 - 8 pounds and

Adult Sphynx male to weigh 8 - 10 pounds. This can vary give or take.

Lifespan of a Sphynx?

Sphynx can live 9, all the way to 20 years!

 

Are Sphynx Truly Hairless?

No Sphynx is truly 100% hairless, they do have fine hair on the bridge of the nose and backs of the ears. Some have a fine down or fuzz that makes them feel like velvet to the touch. Some have can have fuzz on the tail or other areas of the body. It does also depend on genetic background, hormonal changes, and seasonal changes, all play a role. This is hair you may see come and go or stay. Some Sphynx are more "hairless" than others. No guarantee can be made that your kitten may not grow some fuzz at some point in its life. Some remain very "naked".

 

Are Sphynx Hypoallergenic?

No. While many people think that a cat's fur is the primary allergen, this is actually a widespread misconception. According to the American Collage of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, the allergic potential of cats is not driven by fur, but rather by the presence of a protein (Fel d 1) in the animal's saliva, dander and urine. Although the fur itself is not an allergen, it can collect saliva, dander and urine in addition to other allergens like dust, which means that cats with less fur may be less likely to collect allergens. Many frequently consider the Sphynx cat less allergenic because it does not have any fur to trap allergens. Many people tolerate Sphynx very well with less or no allergies.

 -We do Not provide allergy visits, you can still be allergic to Sphynx and since our home has several cats as oppose to having one cat in the home, That alone can make a huge difference.
