Cairo's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.

Cairo's Story...
Cairo (and his littermates) are pure-bred Sphynx kittens (their parents, King Tut & Cleopatra are also available for adoption and are listed here on Petfinder). A few things to know about Sphynx cats: One would expect a hairless cat to produce no symptoms in the cat-allergic, but this is not the case. The Sphynx considerately refrains from shedding all over your couch, but can still make you sneeze. It is not the hair itself that causes the allergic reaction, but rather an allergenic protein called Fel d1 secreted via saliva and sebaceous glands. Sphynxes produce this secretion just as all cats do; they just don't deposit allergen-laced hair all over the place. Sphynxes also require grooming. They must be regularly bathed to remove collections of oily sebaceous secretions on the skin. These secretions are normal; it's just that Sphynxes don't have hair to absorb them. Allowed to collect, these oils can cause skin problems. The adoption fee for Cairo is $500.00.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cairo, a Columbus Sphynx kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Sphynx for sale in Columbus, or seeking a Sphynx kitten from a breeder in Columbus.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Columbus already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Columbus breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Sphynx breeders who help with Sphynx rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Columbus paves the way for another one to be saved.
