    Here's Gustavo (Gus)!

    We picked him up from the airport today and WOW just WOW. He's eaten a tiny bit and meowing a bit since he's likely looking for his litter mates, but we LOVE LOVE LOVE him. Still no bathroom and I hope he eats a bit more over the next few days but it has only been a few hours. I can't stop...

    Welcome home Marceline!

    Yesterday my girlfriend and I took a 5 hour road trip to pick up our baby from the breeder. As soon as we saw her I almost cried, she is so much tinier than I expected for 3 months, so precious!

    Gotcha day surprises!

    Gotcha day finally arrived! My partner and I headed down to London last night, stayed over in a hotel and our plan was to pick up Fritz and take the train straight back up to Glasgow.

    Are you looking for clothes for your sphynx?

    I have 3 shirts of Tut's that he has out-grown. I would like to find someone that really needs them, I know they can get expensive with other new kitten expenses. One is a training shirt the others are bigger. I got Tut around 2.5 months when he fit the trainer and was 4 to 6 months when he fit...

    New little sister!!

    Hello! Zhuri is getting a new little sister next week! Gotcha day is set for Thursday! Zhuri is just about 18 weeks old so I am hoping she adjusts easily to a new kitten!

    My furless baby!

    Hey everyone! I never shared any news or pictures of my baby Pavlov (ha ha!) when I got him in November. Since I've got him it's been heaven. I feel like I got my first baby! Of course there are days where he drives me insane but he is so worth it. I'll tell you a little about him: he's a...

    Hello From Canada :)

    Hi! I just got my first sphynx over a week ago and thought I would share :). Her name is Astrid and is nine months old. She is extremely loving and cuddly, and is doing well :) I would love to recommend the breeder to my fellow Albertans, but sadly they are not breeding anymore.

    Gotcha day on Sunday!

    With gotcha day just around the corner we've been getting the cat room all set up for the little ones. We had given the Breeder a blanket so we could get their scent on it, nice and mushroomed up pip has already smelled the blanket and even bundled herself in it. 3/4 of the kittens will be home...
