With Elena, I met in 1988 at the wedding of our common acquaintances. The next day I visited her at her home. And there I first saw her cat Varvara. It was a shock for me! Such an oddity, I have never seen, it was unbelievable. In the 70 years I have in fact in the journal "Science and Life," read a short article that in North America, four were born naked, hairless kitten. The breed was called Sphinx. And there was also the small picture. And now, seeing Varvara, Elena say: "Oh, my God, because he is Sfinx, hairless Sfinx!"
But take Varvara hand, I was afraid, and I was afraid even to touch her. Now people understand exactly who, seeing hairless cat for the first time, having strange feelings. Certainly they condemn, by itself, I passed. Varya was already an adult cat modrokrémovej color velvet on the head and back was fine, the ears should levi žltopiesočnej mane color to this luxurious fluffy tail and paws. "Lena is a nice slick naked cat?" - And I ask Elena says: "Very nice. . . actually, nothing is more pleasant." The concern is one finger back and bumped Varvarinho - extraction of hand. No, you can now! Around the year kamarátiac with Elena, I met with Varvara, zvykala I'm on her appearance, but a cat I could not accept. Not believe, but in that time I Varvara had even once in the hands or touch her skin. I do not know how to describe my position on this cat at the time, but I was interested about it. I asked Elena to everything related to Varvara. As such, when Elena Kovalev told the story as to her Varvara received. . . . .
In February 1986, Elena returned home, where it waited daughter and 4 cats originating from the street. The playground in the yard of the boys threw a small bag from a heartrending scream kitten. Elena bag boy and took him to chose a small 3-4 month kitten. Beautiful, Feather, Miss tortie. Where now with kitten? Elena brought him to his home. Kitten give the name of Varvara. Varvara has grown as any other kitten, but about 4 months began to lose its soft fur. Not once. Gradually. First on the head, then back. Elena therefore clog it to the vet. The doctor determined dermatitis, herpes and naordinoval quantity of medicines and ointments, but it did not help at all. So let the cat as well as the fact that neprejavovala no signs of disease and its wonderfully prospered. Varvara grew and grew hair and had less and less.In 1989, the Rostove on Don held an exhibition of cats, where Elena has sent his daughter Innu and Varara with the belief that cats are the only exhibition for children and pensioners. Inna after three hours of the exhibition all weepy and returned in tears, because he laughed at the exhibition with the fact that the there with such a bald cat wants. But what has? Happened. Innu appease, repented, and the matter was forgotten. After some time held the same club again in Grate exhibition cat. Varvara had even less hair now, completely velor head, mane behind the ears, fluffy tail, the legs "valenky". And now the exhibition select Varvara herself Elena. We we went to the Inno also. The exhibition will look back and came Vario director of the exhibition. Elena explained it: "This is Sfinx, bare cat, such as in America, I read about them!" And the answer: "Where would be here with us took such oddity? Impossible! What Sfinx? "True, at that time for us to be aware Sfinx few people, but nobody saw them. Neither this exhibition, has a second, nothing solved. May of year is the 1990th I get a new apartment and moving in it coincides with the date of my birthday. And Elena, I did not say anything in advance and brought me a kitten. My God, I have kitten! Varvarinu daughter! True, I have not once stated - in a new home any cat, buy a boxer. And here Macao - lady, so ridiculous, disheveled, tail as a fan, hair to it lies in the chipmunk. A head - gently Lysa, as in Varvara. Born 20.2.1990. Elena gave her name Serka (Šedivka) because it seemed to be grayed out. Cat, we deleted pobehala you oňuchala. I look at it. No, this is not a cat. And when I saw her feet and fingers when their hands than what - it grabbed and held ... I fall off I ... my gentlemen! This is not a cat, this is the next monkey. Really, monkey - Chita - so called ape in the movie. So that her name remain.
Chita grew. From her first litter, I left one tom-cat. Why the tom-cat? Let me explain. At that time, said that the house has to be tom-cat, marry-cat houses nobody wanted and certainly not with the kittens. Resulted in problems, and smell like. Even my husband stated unequivocally - no kittens!
The first time I gave milt feeling great, just great European male cats. It is worthwhile to describe it in detail. I never had cats at home, I always had male cats only. When read in the age of one year received the first ment for three days launched a concert that I was determined to pair her with anyone. As on purpose, in the vicinity was no cat, we searched under all the cars in the yard, but everything was just cats. Therefore, we started to walk in their homes. We went to one, zaklopali, cat had. A boy from a good family, immaculate, loved. His lord said - this is our marquis, labôčka, our splendor. I bring this Markíza deleted. At the moment - ball, battle, Marquis drenched with blood, scream. Mesta torn off, pack tourist tins and return it back to the owner. I wonder nezachcelo a cat from a good family, is another, which can be found. And here, seeing my affliction, helped neighbors, active group, also looking cat, wherever asked. Just found one yet - in susediek, grandmothers living in tomcat. I went to them and say - let your cat. And Grandma - what Thank God, we will not give, we want to be there, as will our Vaseňka behave. Grandma is old, is an NGO, lying, or are not able to stand. And Vaseňka for them outside world, najmilovanejší. So I bring them emotion. Once I deleted it, the cat is cast so that the "ball" when it flew under the bed where the sick grandma was lying there and poďho rough-house. Vplazím under the bed, cat ťahám per foot, but he does so Chita zadrapila that is towed behind him. And both terribly vrieskali. I don't tell lies - NGO grandma got up from bed - our Vaseňku beat! Caught emotion and go home. Dislike her cat stareniek, nor one from a good family, so it will dump the cat! And children are pursued - Aunt Ira, in the courtyard under the gate lies a huge cat, exactly what you want. In the refrigerator I had a canned ham, I have brought a great deal with her son and fleeing to neighboring door. There, in the cellar window is rolled a huge mouth and dormant. We brought ham it under the nose - the cat track. Once again, it again below. So we have to be attracted to our homes. While we carry it to us and I neutiekol him to nemetal, fed ham. And he slowly ate mľaskavo. We brought him into the hall and I saw up there, whom we dotiahli. Such a monster in my whole life have seen. Only the tail filled the whole hall. Tomcat dožul ham, saw my emotion. Permanent angry, folded, began spit. Cat looked at her, nuzzle, shred it immediately, and bred.
For additional Chita ment I was prepared. I found a neighbor who had a cat Dimu. The smoke was white, blue, striped, not white. If you want to know how to look like Dima, go to the street, the dump, where such fits hundred.
With Chita to mate three times successively. The first litter I have left two male cats. It was Hannibal and Martin. Hannibal was black. Female Cat don't have 3-4 years, but looks good, all the teeth in place, white, big.
His brother, Martin, striped tabby was slightly higher from Hannibal. In both, we measure their maturity, Hannibal had the tip of the nose to the root of the tail 53 cm, 54 cm Martin. Martin, unlike Hannibal, lose hair completely. I gave him his godfather, he lived a free life with him. He played on the streets, wander in the snow, fished a mouse or rat, and he did not do the problem. The summer was almost completely bare, just the end of the tail, paws and ears should be the place for feathered. But in winter, when he walked out, it grew huge furry trousers. He looked very funny. Martin spent eight years in this style. He died tragically hands Holubar, in fact caught the pigeon. After Martin left many descendants, but none was plain, even a little coat.
This means that it applies to every litter! From this litter, I decided to give kittens names by alphabet and connect them to the MIF file extension. Hannibal and Cal also received her only feeling I have decided to Cito, without an extension. Saying the current language, Chita was the kennel Elena Kovalev, not my, it would be ugly if I gave her my extension. Two names were born kittens Anton MIF and Afinogen Mif. TomCats grew, the time has come farewell - one of them must go to live in Leningrad. It should be removed. A better one was Antoška was greater, and had less hair than his brother. Afonka Does the poloosrstený and smallish. Anton, I wanted to leave, which meant that in Leningrad will Afon. So Afinogen MIF through my famous Rostov got to Tatiane Komarova. But not Anton not stay long with me. To me home to my cats came Irina drake. Popozerala all hairless cats living in the moment of the Grate, and I told her in detail how this all began. I saw Irina is looking for cats, it was obvious that it's all very interested. I learned from it and a lot of information. She was at that time already experienced specialist in cats. Irina drake you drove Anton MIF. So both brothers were in Leningrad. And from the Leningrad Irina with Anton chose to Budapest for an exhibition of cats, where Antoška provoked enthusiastic responses.
Mating City and Hannibal. 26.10.1992 Chita born. And here I am waiting for a big surprise. So far, all born in kittens more or less hair, some lost hair during the year. Now Chita gave me a shot in the middle of which was bare completely bare kitten. I was shaken! My feelings were about such as when I first saw Varvara. It was a little girl.
So it is still possible! I gave her name Basja. Grew and finally was beautiful also went to Leningrad to Irina drake. He lives there with Anton. Incidentally, one litter was born with Basjou and Bastet MIF.
At that time I received a book in hand, which has been written about the horse breed Przewalskeho by Germans in the war completely exterminated. The owner of the herd, however, managed to save a single stallion of this kind. As the only remaining stallion, there is a problem, as the stallion breed herd. And the book is written in detail how they made it : we found sound resembling a stallion to mare, copulate them together and daughters again spárili with his father. Everything I read and thought to be. I have a feeling, her son Hannibal. Each with varying degrees harless. And why not? Why not try? There are who ask, so without the advice and assistance from me was felinológ. copulate my mother with her son, feeling of Hannibal. I did the same thing, which was written in the book, ie inbreeding ( inbreeding ). And in accordance with the book confirmed that exactly follows the rise of a new breed of new features. It should be noted that at the time when this happened, the words of inbreeding, felinológ, crossing, few people knew or heard about them.
17 February 1993 Chita bare litter. And again - in the litter is a hairless kitten. Now it's cat. First hairless cat! It was a success! I felt that I was close to something important for me to be incomprehensible to the mystery may be associated with my cats. Very disturbs me. Kittens which the growth of lost hair, appearance holonarodených dogs, cats, nature of their appearance, striking eyes and feet with long toes, to the people - all of it is not typical for ordinary, we know cats.
This litter was very evaporated. Hairless cat we named Vikont MIF. He grew up on big, beautiful cat, he lived long in family in our Rostov. Very converge to dog. Lived life ease, and devour only slept together. But, dog-friend died. Vikont have gone to the backing, lay there three days, do not eat, drink and died without apparent cause. He had 10 years and the entire ten years the two of them survived together. After leaving Vikontovi beautiful offspring.In the same litter, together with Vikontom born winner and Violetta. Winner of the MIF - the cat with beautiful body construction, powerful, rapidly losing hair. He was the first of my cats who went to Moscow, lives in Natali Ibrahim. Vitaz and Hannibal were the first "don" the cat show in Moscow. I know that the winner is the father of the beautiful and multiple offspring, which lives only in Moscow. Violetta MIF - Beauty is my white-haired boy. Very similar to his mother feeling. It gave me great and beautiful offspring.
I talked only about the very beginning, I was not prejudiced by many. Rozpovedala just the first, very first cats with which we began this difficult journey. Any and all of them I can write a separate story. It was hard to lose anyone in the beginning, neodvrhnúť, help it grow and help him with offspring. Very thank fate that I had hooked up with Elena Kovalev, many thanks to our cats, Varvara, Chita, all their children.
I hope to figure out inaccuracies and falsifications of the history of the breed Don Sfinx after my telling disappear. It is a appearance as Varvara as a result of the Chernobyl tragedy, that was found somewhere to dump the Chita came into the world bare, to say nothing of Varvara. Another untruth is to use Don from other breeding stations in holding age peers Chita and Hannibal, and also animals from the fictions of my kennel as the bearers of the gene for blue eyes.
I am glad that you found a breed of their supporters who are interested for it. I am happy that many fans and created many kennels. This means that it was unnecessary. This means that created a new breed...
Don Sphynx breed is a breed of cat that is born from a bare (no hair). Among the established people is therefore logical that when a cat has no hair, is an ideal solution for allergy sufferers. For if someone is allergic to cat hair, so in this case should not be allergic to what.
Such an assertion is not correct if the "myth" contributed allergists who have allergies suffered by people in contact with a cat so named. This is not allergic to cat fur, but the substances were to coat. These are the proteins in cat saliva and secretions, which they in their intensive care for your hair rubs all over his body. Coated cat spends most of the day sleeping, snooze, and licking the fur. Thus, it cleans, but on every single hair and leaves your saliva. The fact that the cat sheds, and you need not convince even the most carefully what will it remove the hair from the flat, and so takes up to six months, while the coat of flat smeared allergenic protein disappears. Thus it is in the coated cats.
However, bare cats lick too! This is not to be so intense as that of their colleagues and become a furry that was hairless cat all day neoblíže even once. The advantage of such a cat is that it can be easy and if necessary take a bath, which will remove allergens from the skin even more.
From experience we know that the reaction to Don Sphynx must try every allergy sufferer himself. Some of these cats will not respond at all, some of these cats to their small impact on their immune system even heal. However, there are also cases that the Donoch allergies sneeze and weep...
It is not possible to say that Don Sphynx cat is suitable for allergy sufferers. In many cases, however, can not even argue the opposite, because our offspring are many families with allergies and their co-existence of either party does not cause any problems.
