Brigitte Peppermans (Belgium) answers the Top Cat questions, the expert of All Breed WCF

- What was the name of your first cat?

My first cat's name was Twiki and he was a house hold cat.

- How old were you, when you first got a pedigree cat?

It was in 1981. I was 34 years old.

- What breed was your first cat?

It was Persian. I started breeding Persian and Exotic and was successful in it for 10 years. Then I started breeding Devon Rex. In 1994 I started breeding Sphynx and I am devoted to this breed since then, thou I have only old neuter now in my house. You can find my cattery name – GORIAKIS – in many modern Sphynx pedigrees.

- Whom do you like more in Sphynx: males of females? Why?

I like both. Sphynx are incredible! They are half monkeys, half dogs, half children and half cats. They possess unique ability to perform shenanigans for everyone's entertainment. They can fly like a bird on your shoulder and are skillful in climbing atop doors and bookshelves. They love human attention, no, they demand it! And Sphynxes may be mischievous and lovely as children.

The best Sphynx cats now are in Russia and Ukraine.
