    At my wits end, need help

    Hi everyone, When I first adopted my cat I was in a very different space. I worked 8-12 hour days, had a well paying job, lived with a S.O., and most of all I was healthy.

    Lump - any idea what this is?

    This is Stellatron, and I’ve noticed this small bump come up on him. I’ve read online that it may be a few things but I’m concerned it might be serious. He had his injections done two weeks ago and is due to have the next one done next weekend. Has anyone else come across this before or know...

    Safety ideas for ledges

    Basically my sphynx loves climbing and jumping. Luna is really hyper and over the last few days I’ve had 2 close calls and one tumble over the edge of this ledge in my bedroom. She is okay as she landed 4 steps down. Although my fear is that this may have given her more confidence when leaping...

    Strange "bruise"?

    Hey, This is my first time ever posting to this site. I just wanted to see if anyone had a similar experience with their sphynx cat.

    Blue Bumps everywhere

    Hey! I’m new to this site and I have had a sphinx cat named monti for about 7 years now. He has had these blue bumps all over him, face body and tail. They look like blue pimples but some are getting really big. They don’t bother him and the local vets don’t know what they are. Any ideas? Thanks...

    Hey there! I recently got my first sphynx cat so I’m pretty new to all of this. He is 4 months old and recently has been getting small red bumps down his back. It almost looks like small pimples. We thought maybe it was an allergic reaction and we switched his shampoo, his food, his laundry...

    Rough hair, rash, and constant flaking

    Hi! My Sphynx(Kumo) is 6months old and has been having many skin issues. It started about two months ago and the vet at the time said it looked normal and it was probably acne.

    Nail Help?

    Hey y’all! I need some advice about Kenzo’s nails. We trim & file them 1-2 times a week, and clean them once every week using a baby wipe and some q-tips, damp with Witch Hazel. He’s normally pretty patient during the process. If he lets out a ‘yeoww,’ once or twice, it’s usually due to some...
