'You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed!'
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Let me introduce myself and my family. My name is Svetlana. As well as my parents I was born and live in Moscow. I've grown in amicable and intelligent family and very grateful to my parents they've given me such great potential for my future and life. My husband was born in Moscow also and has grown in family of scientists. He studied in Academy of Federal Security Service of Russian Federation and some time was engaged in cryptography, but now he's work as Business Development top-manager. Also we've our small family business.
Fortunately my work gives me great pleasure and satisfaction, I'm clinical psychologist, I've real possibility to help people. I see some law that my favourite hobby are cats, they're are capable to feel mood and emotional condition of people. They can treat our soul and body, give us hope and calm.
My familiarity with sphynx breed has begun since 2003 at CFA show. I've been very surprised by exotic appearance and peculiar temperament of sphynxes, I admired with their unique grace and expression, great skill to understand and love people. Just I've taken sphynx on my hands I had no doubts - I really want to see, touch and communicate with these bald extravagant cats every day!
I collected the information about sphynx breed, history and origin, sphynx blood lines and genetics of cats. I've visited some CFA/TICA Shows to speak with sphynx breeders and judges about the breeding & showing cats, features of sphynx temperament, sphynx health and care. I wanted to know all about these cats, each detail was interesting. As I came to know sphinxes better, I’ve understood it's right choice.
I believe all animals especially cats can understand and feel people. They are happy when we love them and sad if we care for them not enough. So it was very responsible decision to start my own sphynx cattery, because I should be assured I can give great love and good care to each of my sphynxes.
My dreams have come true soon - I've bought my first sphynx king Enneking Zanzibar. He's representative of French and Belgian lines (Magie D'Orient/Goriakis). Zanzibar likes to sit on my shoulder; he kisses and purrs whole days. He's neutered in 2007.
Next I've picked up three beautiful females for my sphynx cattery - Grand Oray Gertsoginya, Spes Bona Diona and Glamourr from Vandvis cattery. Diona and Gertsoginya are my first queens, they've been spayed in 2007-2008. Glamourr has been spayed in 2010, but one of her wonderful kittens - black tortie female AprioriNaked Be My Baby live with us now and wait her nice prince to continue mum's lines again.
In a year I've found gorgeous sphynx queen in Ozzumkats cattery, she has won my heart the combination of mink color and nice type. Thanks to Ronna for this blue tortie miracle!
I've got new sphynx male from Godz sphynx cattery in 2007, I want to say thanks to Judi for such adorable boy. He is really my favorite!
We have new memebers in our cats' family - Vandvis Daybreak, and my own 3 girls.
I try to collect the best lines to get strong health and type of my kittens and do my breeding program interesting and productive. The pedigrees of my sphynx cats are presented by lines of such sphynx catteries as Godz, Le L'Amitie, Bemisu, Classytouch, Crystalskye, Foxwellhall, Kittypen, Vande Balds, Taldi, Wildwood and others. I don't want to stop with the getting of new lines to realize all my plans and ideas.
I get great approval from my family; they love sphynxes very much and really help me in all things, so we try to do the best together. We have many interesting plans and hope to carry out them in the future because sphynxes give us great inspiration and do our life more joyful, kind and happy.

The sphynx cattery is the important part of my life; I give it much time and my heart. I really enjoy the long dialogue with sphynxes. I've got acquainted with many interesting people and found new friends. I want to say GREAT THANKS to all people, breeders and judges who support and help me!
I would like to co-operate and be on friendly terms with people who love sphinxes like me and want to keep these unique cats for the future generations.
I wish success and sincere love to cats for all breeders and people who just think to breed cats!
