    Kitten had bath last night & is already looking dirty

    So last night, after looking mighty grubby, we gave him his first bath in his new home. He was very well behaved! The only problem now is... he's absolutely dirty again. I dunno how he's managed it or what it's come off of, but her's so grubby and the baby wipes just aren't cutting it. I don't...

    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.

    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...
