    Hey everyone, so binxy came home a day early last night! He's amazing! He is not afraid of anyone of anything, loves cuddles and love- just perfect!
    My only concern now is that he keeps sneezing . His eyes are clear, his poo is regular looking and he has no discharge from any orifice. Do sphynx kittens just randomly sneeze ? He had his last injection and microchip yesterday morning.

      From all of the excitement from the shot/microchip/coming into a new home, he might have a little cold, but its nothing to worry about and almost expected. As long as it doesnt get too bad, he will be fine. It might also be something in your air at your house that he isnt used to yet, and he might be more sneezy than normal. Just give him some time :BigSmile:

          Just keep an eye on him. Shots are really stressful on their little bodies and combining that with the stress of moving can result in them getting an upper respiratory infection. Hopefully he’ll fight it off on his own. Sneezing occasionally is normal. Like, if they run behind furniture and get dust in their nose. But sneezing over and over while sitting on the couch with you is usually the first sign of an upper respiratory issue. If it progresses to eye and nasal discharge and his energy level and appetite change it’s time to go to the vet. It’s always a good idea to take them to your own vet to get them checked out within a few days of getting them anyway so you can ask your vet during the 1st checkup.
