    Black paws!

    So I give my sphynx, Gemma, a bath every other week. However, her paws always seem to have dirt around them whether I scrub them or just lather. Baby wipes don't help and I would love to know any advice you could give me. Thank you!

    Worst Bath Ever

    Tonight was Godiva's biannual bath and I have to say I have never see her have such a negative reaction to water than she had tonight She screamed and thrashed and tried to claw up my arms and I'm just so lost She's fussed a little in the past, but never anything like this What could have happened?

    Bath night!!

    Well, Astrid's first real bath went well. She only escaped the tub once! I used the blue dawn dish soap in the water and Vétoquinol care for sensitive skin shampoo on her. It left her with the slight coconut smell, nothing over powering thankfully! It rinsed off easily too. She only allowed for...

    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...

    Is this normal after bath time?

    Hey! So today was our first bath together! The breeder told us Luna did like baths so I was a bit nervous. It was a 2 man job simply because mom and I felt more comfortable that way. She complained in the beginning and then settled down and lets us give her a nice bath and clean her ears...

    First Bath

    Hi! I just got myself a little Sphynx kitten a week a go. And she's gotten a bit dirty, so I feel like it's time for her first bath. But she has never had bath before. So I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to proceed the first time I'm giving my little girl a bath?
