WELCOME TO ALCHEMY SPHYNX CATS

Hello. My name is Dr Jocene Vallack and I live in Townsville, Australia. I have been breeding show cats under the cattery name ALCHEMY since 1998. Alchemists of old tried to turn lead into gold - a bit like the elusive art of trying to breed exquisite show cats. 

22nd October, 2017 update - I have a blue boy and a black boy available. They will be ready to leave home just before Christmas... Ph 0429681102

I am very excited to share some pictures with you.

These lovely photographs were taken by renowned photographer, Tetsu Yamazaki.  I would like to extend my sincere thanks to him for generously permitting the use of his photographs on this site.

This link takes you to an ABC radio interview that I did about Sphynx cats:

We expect to have more kittens in 2017. If you are interested in adopting a Sphynx, there are some things to consider:

  •  Sphynx feel the cold because they have no fur. Although they feel warm to touch, they get cold easily. Unless you live up here in Northern Queensland, they will need a warm sleeping box with a pet electric blanket, or a microwave heat pad. They like to crawl under soft blankets to keep warm, so have these available in their bed.
  • They need to be bathed every so often - about every 3 or 4 weeks, or when they get grubby. Too much bathing creates skin problems. Ears need wiping out with baby wipes more regularly. The oils, usually taken away by hair, gather and collect dust in ears.  
  • Alchemy Sphynx are sold desexed, microchipped, and vaccinated. Most kittens fly interstate to their new homes. Kittens cost $2400, which includes an interstate airfare and a new airline carry cage to keep.

For enquiries, please go to CONTACT US,  and complete the message form on this website, or you are welcome to phone Jocene on 0429681102.

Thank you for your interest. Please enjoy the website.

Please call for a chat if you would like more information. It is important that I know who is going to be owning the kitten,  and that we both are content that a Sphynx is right for you. It is also important that you know  I am a legitimate breeder. I will be judging at the FCCQ Cat show in Brisbane on 5th March, 2017.  

 

Please beware of the occasional scam with this breed. Always check that your breeder is registered with a legitimate Australian cat federation, which will hold breeders accountable. The three associations in Australia are ACF, CCCA and ANCATS.

Alchemy cats are registered with the Feline Control Council of Queensland, which comes under the jurisdiction of the Australian Cat Federation (ACF).

Older posts   - 2012:                                                                                  USA CAT SHOW IN RENO

I am updating this site (at last) from  the Grand Sierra Hotel in Reno, where I have just attended my first American Cat Show. The people were so welcoming, and introduced me to lovely breeders of Sphynx and Siamese cats over here. I even got to handle some (the cats - not the breeders!)  My thanks to Bobbi IrieShow, Carol Freels and Mary Auth for making me so welcome.

As I have now started as a trainee judge with the FCCV in Australia, I was very pleased to be able to observe the expertise of international judges such as David Mare and Douglas Meyers. They handled the cats beautifully, and convinced me that they knew exactly what they were doing.

I was thrilled to be able to see Japanese Bobtails and American Shorthair cats, as I have not seen these breeds in Melbourne. The silver tabby American Shorthair was my pick of the day. I have been breeding classic orientals for some years, and I know how difficult it is to get that recessive pattern, along with everything else. It was also a great opportunity to observe the differences between the American Shorthair and the British Shorthair, when excellent examples of each breed were benched side-by-side.

Here are some pictures:

and while I am up there with the celebrities...Me with David Mare:

This is legendary USA Siamese breeder, Dee Johnson fron San-Joi cattery, with one of her seal-point kittens. I was impressed by the clear, light coat and contrasting dark points. Our Australian lines sometimes lack that coat clarity in Siamese - and I include my own breeding there.
