    Help Deciding Color?

    @Catzzzmeow oh yes look at him, you can definitely see the difference here cant you, his nose pad and points so much lighter, yes in comparison definitely would agree with seal, it’s so exciting to see the rarer colours coming out in the sphynx, I’m only use to seeing chocolate and lilac in...

    Red, Cinnamon Or Fawn

    Hi guys, Rather than write it out myself and try to explain it, this is a rather great explanation of how cat genetics work, it’s absolutely awesome and fascinating and this is what made me become a registrar many years ago, unfortunately I’m starting to forget some of it now but take a read of...

    Help Deciding Color?

    @MomosMom well if his dad was a visual chocolate and his mum carried the chocolate gene he certainly could be a chocolate, if his mum didn’t he would definitely be seal. It’s a lot harder with sphynx because of the lack of hair but we use to tell by how dark their nose and paw pads were, as the...

    Thank you for the article @Catzzzmeow ill be sure to read that right away.

    Small amount of blood in stool

    Hi @SashimisMom We recently went through a similar issue with our Donald who is turning 6 months old, first we noticed he was vomiting up dry food, then we noticed his pee was dark brown and then lastly we noticed blood in his stool once and his poops were sloppy mixed with some solid. We...

    Help Deciding Color?

    @MomosMom its very hard to tell from the pics, he is definitely classed as a point due the colour on his points and blue eyes so he is a bi colour point. He can’t be chocolate and seal at the same time, as the chocolate is a genetic mutation of the seal point, however based on so the pics he...

    A small dent on his head

    My little Donald is turning 6 months and we noticed this considerably considering he is smaller for his age but we have noticed this getting smaller as he has grown. When I use to breed Persian cats many years ago, this was extremely common to see given they were born with large heads (for...

    Best External & Internal Parasite Treatment

    Hi everyone, Given our sphynx babies can be extremely sensitive with their skin and their feeding, I was hoping to gather some of your experiences about what you consider the best treatment for both internal and external parasites, as well as ear mites. Whilst our little Donald was done for...

    Does your sphynx kitten have a favourite human or loves everyone and anyone

    Hi @pussiette You are right in that it use to be quite an ideal to import a cat, many years ago I knew a breeder that had a Persian in quarantine for nearly 6 months and a friend who imported from Norway and had 3 months, nowadays it is a lot more simplified, the quarantine depends on the...

    Does your sphynx kitten have a favourite human or loves everyone and anyone

    @pussiette We are very conscious about Donald when travelling so will not leave the RV parked anywhere there could possibly be a break in, like try to avoid parking in car parks etc, only supervised RV parks, also we have constant power and if not we leave the generator running, we are lucky...
