    Lilith Updates!

    Hello all! Lilith is doing so well. She's really came out of her shell and loves sprinting across the house to pounce on her toys and on us haha. We had our first vet checkup and all seems well. No heart murmurs or other issues. We had our first spa day yesterday (I was going to wait until...

    Lilith Update and Questions

    Well. Lilith is eating full speed now. Which has led to this: It's really not been *that* bad honestly, but my boyfriend is having a hard time dealing with the poo, period. So just send him some strength, lol. We try to keep a mat under the litter box and I have wipes at the ready. I'm so...

    Down to days!!

    Gotcha Day (April 1st) is coming up and I have been beside myself with nesting. I buy new toys and blankets every time we go to the store :ROFLMAO: I created a special corner for her in the room she'll be spending most of her time in until she gets adjusted to the whole house (not pictured are...

    Best Dry Food?

    I see a lot of discussion about raw diets here, and as much as I would love to participate in that, I just don't think I'll have the time or the stomach (both my boyfriend and I are vegetarian) to make it work well. So I'm on the hunt to find the best types of dry food that others use. I've seen...

    Adventures in Kitten Proofing: DIY Project

    I'm still quite a long way away from Gotcha Day, but I'm using up all my spare time to prepare for Lilith's arrival. Until she gets older and more acclimated to the house, we are going to keep her in the spare bedroom while we're away and when it's time for bed. This room is also the room I use...

    Baby's First Bath!

    My breeder sent me some photo's of Princess Lilith's first bubble bath yesterday and I just HAD to share them. :love::love::love: She was very vocal about her experience, lol. The breeder assured me she passed her first Spa Day with flying colors once she got used to the water. One more week...

    Kitten Proofing!

    Oh my goodness! This is great information. Thank you all so much. :LOL: Sounds like I need to take a trip to the store and visit the actual baby section and get some childproofing things! Also time to turn on the charm about the litter box situation... Although, now that I think about it, our...

    Kitten Proofing!

    Our gotcha day isn't until the end of March, but I'm too excited not to be preparing the house already. And I just think you can never start too soon with these things. I guess my big picture question is: just how curious IS your Sphynx? My boyfriend and I both work during the day. He usually...

    Dealing with pet allergies?

    Just wanted to let everyone know I appreciate everyone's comments. I have done plenty of previous research on the allergy and what causes it. But I have also noticed numerous people, whether it be from here or YouTube or blog posts, have mentioned that the Sphynx doesn't irritate them as badly...

    Dealing with pet allergies?

    Hi there! I went to spend some time at my breeder's house and I did ok. They had three adult cats and five kittens, plus a large indoor dog. I only sneezed a few times, and I feel like that was mostly due to the dog. I held the kittens and adult cats and my skin didn't break out or anything.

    Dealing with pet allergies?

    I have read on countless threads and websites that Sphynx are in no way hypoallergenic. But at the same time, most people also mention that their Sphynx bothers them/their loved ones less than coated cats. I have had a numerous list of allergies since I was younger. Including being severely...

    New Sphynx mommy here!

Princess Lilith will come to me in just ten weeks, and I'm just a bundle of excitement and nerves! I've grown up in a family with countless pets, but this will...
