    How Old is she safe to get Pregnant?

    Hi, I’m new here, my name’s Louise and my Sphynx’s named Poco (male) and Pitta (female), they’re not siblings. Poco is 10 months old and Pitta is 3 months old. I think Poco’s starting to get horny (I don’t know what is the right term for a cat), and I’m not sure if Pitta is ready, so I...

    Female cats going into heat

    I received Joy at Christmas 2015. She was 8 months old at the time. Shortly after I got her she went into heat for about 4 days. She hasn't went into heat over a year now. Is that normal?

    Easily Burnt?

    Hello! I am looking at getting a sphynx but my breeder told me something that worries me. She said that sphynx don't have the ability to know when hot is too hot. She said that if you don't watch them very carefully, they'll walk right into a lit fireplace, an oven, curl up around a hot stove...

    Couldn't be neutered....now what ?

    I took Luci for her appointment at the vets just over a week ago. Unfortunately, she didn't take too well to the anesthetic, and the vet ruled the operation as too much of a risk. So, she can't be neutered, but what am I to expect now? Will she just be on heat a couple of times a year, or will...
