It could be some glitch with the browser you're using. Those are Photobucket images.

Yep...it's the only cat that I would actually buy from a breeder. Every single one of my cats have been rescues, but I would definitely make an exception for a Sphynx.

Everyone in the house thinks they are gross haha but I LOVE them. They are sooooooo soft like a babies bum! I would sleep with hi under my covers every night for warmth!

I *almost* had a rescue Sphynx but I backed out because he had a heart murmer and I didnt want to chance it not going away then having to deal with more health issues with lack of money.

I guess I could always shave one of my current guys down to the skin and say its a Sphynx ....just kidding I wouldnt do that

you all have beautiful cats! I think my next cat will be long haired.

Mozart is my first kitty and I dont know that much about cats. Is there different fur types beside long and short? I love my cat but I break out in hives/rashes and sneeze for awhile after I pet or snuggle with him but I don't have that problem when I pet my friend's cats??? So I find it very odd that I only have a reaction to Motz.

ps I've been reacting to him for 14 years and I dont plan on rehoming him just wondering if anyone knows more about cats and their fur then I do

I'm not sure if it has to do with long or short hair as much as it has to do with the individual cat. I know my sister is very allergic to cats and will sometimes have asthma attacks if hers aren't treated with this product, (she has a Himalayan, a Norwegian Forrest Cat and a DSH), :

Allerpet/C for Cats - Pet Allergy - Remove Cat Dander - AchooAllergy.com

She doesn't use it all the time, but when she feels like her allergies are beginning to act up, she'll use it then.

I have a short and long haired. I never reacted to my long haired with my allergies. Then when the short haired cat came into the house my allergies acted up about once a week with just itchy eyes. Also, the short haired guy sheds more even when holding him you will get a ton of fur on you from him but not the long haired guy. I have always been allergic to cats but as I grew older the reactions got less and less now I just get gross itchy watery eyes occasionally.

A recent interesting article (10.2500/ajra.2011.25.3606) showed clearly that there is no difference between breeds (in the article it's about dogs but there is similar research on cats) because the primary allergen has little to do with the fur/hair. However, some individual animals had much more of the allergen on them than others, even within breed. I have seen the same puppy returned 3 times on one occassion because 3 separate families had allergic responses to that one puppy - none of the littermates were returned.

How much you clean the hair does really affect allergic reponses so if you have a pet that sheds less than another it could help - that is why long-haired cats are generally recommended for allergy sufferers as they shed differently from short haired cats. Long haired cats shed in clumps rather than hair falling everywhere.
