    New kitten: kinda follows me, but not affectionate.. Why?.. :(

    It's only been 6 days. Cats are individuals.....some are more shy and some are more outgoing. Even the outgoing ones need to adjust to new surroundings. Just let him come to you on his terms. Also don't take away his blankets. You want to provide for his basic needs, which really aren't that...

    Dental & Anesthesia

    I don't take the risk with my guys. I don't even brush. If I ever get a kitten I will start them on brushing when they're young. That's all.

    Perfect Temperature?

    I keep the temperature at 77 to sleep and 79 during the day. The cats still like to get under covers to sleep. I bought them snuggle sacks a few months ago and boy were they a hit. Oh and if there's a sunny window, that's where they go even though it's probably 100 degrees in the sun. This is...

    Deafness after dental cleaning

    Wow - I'm very sorry about Benji but thank you for sharing this story so everyone else is aware I knew someone whose dog died from a teeth cleaning so I have always been reluctant. The vets are always saying that all of my kiddos' teeth are bad, but after reading your story I'm glad I didn't...

    Is this aggression or Sphynx at play?

    Did you ever hear of Jackson Galaxy and My Cat From Hell? JG deals with a lot of aggressive cats on the show. If you get the Animal Planet channel and you want to see other people that have it as bad or worse than you, watch that show. The main thing he's always telling people is to catify their...

    Aggressive kitten

    I lock myself in my bedroom. If I don't lock the door she knows how to open it. It's crazy but anyway that's the deal.

    Aggressive kitten

    I could be wrong, but I think aggression isn't aggression to him but just a way to get your attention. One of my Sphynxes likes knocking things over and I don't think it's about the thing she's knocking over but just to see what I do. It is hard but I have to ignore her. I've gotten pretty good...

    1 year old cat peeing on everything

    Very important question - was she doing this when you first got her? Or did it start after you brought her to your home? If this started BEFORE you got her, I think it's just a matter of retraining her. I would try is Cat Attract litter. It's made especially to bring cats back to the litter...

    Pregnant rescue sphynx help!

    I know nothing about pregnant cats but this is a great website for taking care of kittens including newborns. The lady that runs this site fosters kittens. In fact, for help you might want to reach out to a foster organization in your area. The foster organizations have arrangements with vets...

    Outdoor activities, trips...

    I found this Sun Protective Clothing - The Skin Cancer Foundation Honestly I'm not sure if I need to worry about UV rays. Obviously I know it's not good, but what I was looking for was to keep their skin from turning red. If you read that article, it says cotton doesn't protect you from UV...

    By the way, has anyone noticed if the clothes keep them from getting red when they're outside?

    Outdoor activities, trips...

    Wow they even have their own website. It's in Canada but I guess they ship worldwide. But then again they have a lot of sweaters and we're in Florida so we might be better off waiting for their "Spring Collection" ; ) Thanks!

    Thanks! And I would try to find something in Germany too if I were you. Or maybe the UK? We have a member in the UK @Beckinboots that is into Sphynx clothes....maybe she could help.

    Does anybody's Sphynx get red from being outside?

    It doesn't happen under a blanket, only outside, so I was thinking maybe it was sunburn. But, our temperatures have been pretty high for this time of year so it could also be heat. In celsius it's been high 20's. Is that too much? The bad news for them is if this is too hot for them, the next...

    Does anybody's Sphynx get red from being outside?

    I guess that could be but I don't understand why my white Sphynx doesn't turn red.
