    leaving sphynx alone overnight

    It depends on the cat... the longest we leave them is about 8 hours, even when we go away. The cat sitter comes 3x a day. But they also eat raw and eat 3x a day too. I wouldnt leave them more than 12 hours max, and only rarely like that.

    Gagging/coughing? Should I see the vet?

    Molly does that coughing and hers is due to acid reflux. Does he puke ever? I would try raising the food dishes to see if it helps. We put her little bowl in an empty flower pot now and it has really helped.

    Window Perch Review - This one is awesome!

    It is really sturdy, and the top suction cups are the ones that twist on to suction. It says that each of those top twist suction cups can hold 100 lbs. So my 20 lbs worth of kitties are not much of a load haha.

    Window Perch Review - This one is awesome!

    Got this double decker window bed from the local small business pet store today. It was $60 CAD and is so well made and sturdy. Nice soft plush (washable) covers on it that will warm up in the sun... if we ever get any here. The company name and web site is in one of the pics below:

    Nail on claw seems... disfigured? Tender to touch

    Looks like the nail sheds have come off too much and that may be why it is sore. Try soaking it in warm water or cleaning it a little to see what is going on under the (totally normal) nail gunk

    HELP...Afraid our boy is dieing...fingers crossed

    I am so sorry. I cannot imagine the stress and grief of that in addition to everything else going on right now. Be kind to yourself, it is a real loss and grief is different for everyone.

    Ikea Sells a Sphynx Brush

    No, they are stiff bristles but the ends are actually pretty soft. Like if you brush it on your arm, it doesn't hurt at all. My 2 just LOVE rubbing themselves on hubby's beard scruff, which is where I got the idea.

    Ikea Sells a Sphynx Brush

    Lucky... I will have to go to the liquor store and stock up this weekend. We did a good run 2 weeks ago, but cocktail hour has been starting early here. I misjudged my amounts

    Curtain climbing and how to prevent it - Help please!

    I had to sacrifice and never buy anything fabric with a loosely woven texture that they can get claws into. Things like 100% cotton that is tight woven, or microfiber or leather textured they are fine with. Anything that is like a tweed or linen and I can expect to have it clawed. Might have...

    ⁹We are the Coldest Place on Earth Tmrw

    We made it through. The school buses were cancelled for a whole week (but schools remained open). It was as low as -47 celcius with the windchill I think. I have a special parka and big sorel boots that come out a few days a year when this happens. Kitties would run away any time the front...
