Welcome

Welcome! My name is Joanna Antoniok and I’m 44 years old. I am the owner and full-time caretaker of a large farm, where I raise goats (Anglo-Nubian) and organic sheep (Dorper). I breed them according to the breed registry, to maintain the breed. I also do landscaping and spend the entire day out of doors, in nature. I love nature more than anything else in the world, and I absolutely love animals. I’ve always had a special relationship with cats. Since my step-sister has been breeding Bengal cats successfully since 2009, I decided to create my own breed with these wonderful animals. I’m expecting my first Bengal cat litters in 2019. Shortly after starting that, I also discovered a passion for hairless cats (Canadian Sphynx). I bought my first Sphynx cats in 2019 and am hoping to have some success breeding them in late 2019/early 2020. One of my goals and wishes for the future would be a Lykoi mating pair. The new breed (werewolf cats) I find incredibly fascinating. If I’m able to find a suitable breeding animal, I might make this wish come true by the end of 2019!

 My Sphynx cats 


I’ve had a soft spot for cats ever since I was little girl. Now I’ve decided to breed the Canadian Sphynx cat professionally and call my kennel ‘La-Glamour-Cats’. (Translated, it means glamour cats.) To me, Sphynx cats are simply an enchanting breed that should also capture the hearts of simply everyone.

My gallery will soon have many pictures that will bring you closer to the breed and simultaneously touch your hearts with their charm.
​My breeding goal is to mate excellent Sphynx or parent animals to the best of my knowledge and conscience. My breeding is meant to preserve the Sphynx cats. I breed only with healthy cats tested for hereditary diseases. All my animals are tested for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) before breeding. They’re also tested for Pyruvate Kinase (PK) deficiency and Bengal Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA-b) and examined for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and polycystic kidney (PKD) disease using an ultrasound. The results, of course, will be published here on the home page. I’d like to breed, based on superb genetics, to preserve the first-class, graceful look of Sphynx cats, while also ensuring they’re cuddly with people.

In January of 2019, I brought home four female Canadian Sphynx cats and two males. To me, Sphynx cats are beautiful, affectionate, willful and cuddly cats. Their bare skin feels so warm, and their beautiful faces remind me of a little alien or humanoid.

A lot of people are under the impression that the breed must get cold often, but that’s not actually the case. They make up for the cold by eating. Because Sphynx have higher energy needs on average, they do require more food than other breeds. The Sphynx is lively, mischievous, playful and independent. It’s sociable towards other cats and to dogs. It’s not aggressive. Very affectionate and even possessive, it enjoys being petted. As you may imagine, I also saw pictures of this cat breed many years ago was shocked by it myself. However, once I held one in my hands and could finally get to know it and its character, I simply had to have one. The more you look at one, the more it melts your heart. There are people who think breeding a Sphynx must be a genuine ordeal. To me, this cat breed has no more disadvantages than other cat breeds; if you’d like to get to know them, you’re welcome to visit me!

The breed standard is also very important to me. That’s why all my male and female cats are presented to a judge at least once in their life to be examined and evaluated. Of course, there are also cats that aren’t suitable for a show, which means they stay at home after attending the first one.

I have no kids, so I live with my cats in a house. I do my best to socialize all of them to the greatest extent possible and to train them to get along well with people. My cats can run around as they please on two floors of the house, and they have their very own large play room.

I also strive to give them as much freedom and exercise as I can, so I'm currently in the process of building two very large enclosures on my land. It goes without saying that the enclosures have a lot of places to climb.
