    Odd eyes

    I was wondering if anyone knew how common odd coloured eyes are in sphynx. My little girl is white with one blue and one green eye and I was curious, is this rare?

    Help! Scrapes on face!

    My baby Simon got locked in the closet last night for less than an hour, which also happens to have the food bag in there. When I found him, I saw that he had stains under his eyes so I tried wiping them off but it wouldn’t budge. I also noticed the food was ripped open and there were brown...

    Always squinting?

    My little 8 month old boy is always squinting! Since the day we got him. Is he just a Snoop Dogg looking kitty or could it be an issue? :) he doesn't seem bothered by his eyes, and they aren't goopy beyond normal. Never red or irritated. I'm still new to sphynx babies so I'm not sure! Thanks :)

    Sphynx has hair on tail and muzzle?

    So my 1 year old kitten has white hair growing on her tail and muzzle, but I don't know if this stops after she gets a little older? She has lots of peach fuzz elsewhere on her body, too. I've done some research and it says the peach fuzz is normal, but I don't know about the two other spots...

    One eye is really watery

    My Vinnie has been in great health. He will be a year old on the 22nd. As of yesterday, his left eye has been very, very watery. Not the normal brownish gel eye boogers. Just clear watery. Anyone know what this could be? His eye isn't red or swollen. Thanks Kat

    Help! Rash/Dry Skin around the eyes?!

    Hello dearest Sphynx Lovers, Our Little Howard has another problem now and it didn't change since I also tried only grain free food. Since some weeks he's wearing a black "coon" mask over his face. Also his paws seem to be a little cankerous from cleaning his eyes. Sometimes the skin seems to be...

    Sphynx Eye Issues

    Hey! :) I was wondering if anyone had any input on eye issues in sphynx cats. We have never dealt with eye problems in Loki or Gatsby, and we do give them L-Lysine everyday. Of course they do get their eye goobers that we wipe out usually every evening, or every other day. The past couple of...

    Advice on L-Lysine

    Hiya, I'm hoping i can get some advice on L-Lysine as i am a new spyhnx owner and feel it could help out my little girl. My kitten Khaleesi had an eye infection when i first got her and the vet gave me some eye drops to help clear it up as it was quite bad. The eye drops have definitely done...

    Runny eyes

    I have had my male for about a year now. His eyes are always runny. It is NOT accompanied by any other symptoms such as sneezing. I changed his food and litter and it got a little better, but they still are runny quite often. I am thinking maybe the shampoo I use? I use Johnsons baby shampoo and...

    Mycoplasma and Herpes

    Hey there, my boy Oscar has eye-issues since i got him one year ago. I tried different vets, and homeopathy. Homeopathy worked best so far but the problems didnt go away.... now I saw a new vet and she told me to visit an eye-clinic, because she thinks its an entropium. While searching the net...

    Eye help needed!

    I have had my two sphynx babies for just over a week. I've noticed clear liquid from their eyes which I know is normal, but one of them now has a swollen eye... At least I think it is swollen is not red or bulging out and there isn't any nasty coloured pus but it looks almost half closed? Should...

    Removing crusty bits

    Does anybody have any tips or tricks for comfortably removing crusty bits from around a kittens eyes. I was thinking of warm water or a baby wipe type thing, but as I'm brand new to the wonderful world of the Sphynx, I thought I'd best ask first. The crusty stuff is visible on the pic Thank you.
