Are these sphynx kittens?
LOL. They are so ugly. My friend has two of those. They are amazing pets, but man they're ugly.

You know, sometimes it irks me how some species are bred to look certain ways, especially if those ways are obviously contrary to what would be optimum for survival in nature.
Yea, I completely agree...but some of them are too cute, haha. I mean, I'm pretty sure lop ears aren't ideal for survival, but people have specifically bred for that mutation and it's so darn adorable...

jers, I thought that was your cousin.
btw Cuz, I'm still unable to see the cheezburger pic you posted the other day. : ( Could you pls post a link in that thread?
@MM, that crossed my mind when I first saw the pic too but I don't enough about the breed really. I think a member here has a sphynx cat but I haven't seen her post in a while.
There are people that generally love, understand and care well for specialty breeds in all animals but I do wonder that not all bred go to ideal homes. If they go anywhere at all.
I suppose (or hope) it's heavily regulated so that not just anyone can getting into breeding to make a quick buck when some breed of animal is having some popularity. That it's only those that care very much that the animals they raise go into good homes. In reality though.... who knows... We see too often that it doesn't go that way. : (
Here it is, Cousin Jerseygirl. pffffttttt!!!!
