    Spaying personality change?

    Today Sansa is getting spayed (most likely). I'm worried that it will change her personality, because even though she can be really crazy and gets into moods scratching everyone (playfully), it has grown on me and I don't want to see her any less rambunctious. Has anyone's female cat's changed...

    Vomiting and bloody rectal discharge

    I have been noticing bloody anal discharge from my 5 month old kitten when she poops. I wipe it off every time but it keeps coming back, and I waited to see if it would go away because I thought it may have been her somewhat recent change of diet. It has not gone away yet and recently she has...

    Cats & Cat Year Conversion! Did you know?!

    Cats and Cat Years Conversion Converting between cat years and human years isn't as simple as using a factor of 7 (as some people erroneously think with dogs, and sometimes cats). The main reason is that cats mature quickly in the first couple of years of life. To convert cat age to an...

    Looking to adopt a Sphynx. Houston, Tx. Age/gender does not matter.

    Hello, I am looking to adopt a Sphynx cat in Texas. I do not want to buy a kitten from a breeder so if you are a breeder, please do not contact me. I would like to give a good, loving, forever home to a cat that needs to be rescued or re-homed for whatever reason. Gender and age do not matter...

    Facts about Cats you might not know

    The one where it states a Kitten remains with their Mother until 9 wks, isn't like a Sphynx of course. They need to stay with their Mom and Breeder until 14 -16 wks. of age. A good reputable will not let them go any sooner.

    My $100 Sphynx Cat (How I Met Miss Demeanor)

    "Cats are furry terrorists, and hairless cats are tiny Voldemorts." I lol'd. It looked true, at least from the YouTube video. I didn't give it a second thought, until I saw Kitty for the first time in almost four years. Her ginger ears swiveled ominously rearwards as she saw me approaching the...

    Immunization Question???

    I am going to be getting my little Maisy her next set of shots soon and have read on some breeder sites that you should get the Sphynx cats non-adjuvanted vaccines. One in particular is the Merial vaccine. Has anyone had any experience with this? Did you get your kitties regular vaccines or...

    safe mosquito repellent

    I have a kitty who loves the outdoors but suffers the mosquito consequences. Does anyone know of a safe, natural repellent? I worry about her bites but know cats are very sensitive to chemicals and am apprehensive to try something unproven.

    cat socialization?

    my cat io is just a little over a year old, and has yet to socialize with a cat.
