    Boys Suck??

    Hola Lairians! Does your sphynx suck?? ... Kenzo has serious suckling tendencies. It’s not quite to the point of a ‘compulsive behavior,’ but it’s definitely a habit. He mainly does it before he goes to sleep every night, or if he’s feeling especially affectionate during the day. I’ve noticed...

    BAD Table Manners: training help

    We've had Kenzo for 2 weeks now, and he has been everything I had hoped, and more! He is so well behaved the majority of the time, so cuddly and sweet, so great with my 9 month old daughter and my 2 dogs.... Only issue is, he has HORRIBLE table manners.:arghh: When Hubs and I are eating, he is...

    Cat + Dog = BFFs

    At least that’s the case in our house! So happy that my hairball and my naked love each other!! I’ve said it 100x over the last week, but I’m truly so very impressed with this breed. So affectionate, attentive, smart and silly!! Here I am, the dog lover, the anti-cat lady, singing the...

    Help! I don't know what else to do!

    Hello all! I am sorry if my thread title sounds like I am overreacting but I really don't know where else to turn. I just really need some help and guidance from people who can relate to my situation. I posted a few months back about my cat Ollivander's aggressive behavior and tendencies and...

    Adopted a Sphynx

    I adopted Molly, 6 year old spayed female sphynx from a no-kill shelter near me about a month ago. Her person went into a nursing home & I don't know anything else about her. I've only had domestic short/long hair cats until now. I thought she'd be a good addition to our family of two dogs and a...

    Behavior issues... maybe caused by meds?

    So, I've had my girl for 5 years. She was my service animal. Because of her behavior, though I retired her. A few months ago I took her into a pet shop and something caused her to snap (before she was completely docile and content on my lap, all the time,) and she became super violent. Took a...

    Advice on behavior change

    Hello all! I'm seeking some advice on some behavior change we've seen from Sturgeon the last two weeks. He's started hissing at our littlest, Walter. Mostly it seems like he's telling Walter to back off or stay away from a particular spot by the window that he has claimed as his own. Sturgeon is...

    Kitty Prozac

    Have you ever needed to put a pet on prozac? Nym is currently taking it, and it seems to really be helping with her litterbox problems. I resisted prozac for the longest time because she isn't depressed, and I didn't like the effects it had on me when I had to take an SSRI (one year; first...

    Disturbing behavior ... or am I just looking at it the wrong way?

    Recently, Puddz displayed some very alarming behavior that took me so off guard I'm not sure how to interpret it. I was hoping that my fellow Lairians could explain this new 'trick' and perhaps provide some insight. Puddz is my first Naked, so I'm still finding new quirks, but this one... Here...
