    Hi everyone. I’d like to share my recent health experience and the conclusion with fellow Sphynx owners. I hope I can help others if they run into a similar situation. I am Marvin's mom - well - I am not really Marvin's mom - he belongs to my daughter - but he lives with me on and off as...

    Sneezing but not much else

    hi everyone! I am relatively new to owning a sphynx cat, but I’ve owned many cats before. My boy has started sneezing and getting a runny nose. I’m making this at 3 am because he woke me up with it and I’m worried! He’s less than a year old and hasn’t had any colds before, but he doesn’t have...

    Cat clothes

    Cold or worse?

    Hello everyone! I didn't think to put a thread here because I thought it was just a normal cold, but it seems to be getting worse for my poor baby Artemis.

    Squinting eyes?

    I'm a Sphynx newbie! We took in a 2 year old male yesterday from a friend of a friend who couldn't care for him. I've got an appointment with the vet scheduled, but it's still a few days away.

    Runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing?

    Hi, I am a brand new Sphynx owner and I am honestly a nervous wreck. I am so in love with my new baby boy, and I want to make sure he is as happy and healthy as he can be.
