    Looking for a kitten! + rep. breeders

    Hi! I’m looking for a Sphynx kitten to love. I’ve run into scammers a lot! If anyone can give me reputable breeders in Arizona (where I’m located) or surrounding states (I’ll drive there!), I would appreciate it! Or possibly ones that do shipping but I’d rather not if I don’t have to. TIA!!

    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...

    Eating loads and now not interested?

    Hi guys! when I first got my boy last week he was already on raw from the breeder so we’ve kept him on it. first few days he ate soooo much and now he’s not interested? He’s meant to have 2-1/2 of the raw patties a day, first day he nailed 4 but now I’ll be lucky if he eats one. He is playful...

    Hi, I brought a kitten around 3 weeks ago due to my commitments to work increasing so I thought it would be best to get my current sphynx a friend due to them being social animals. This has not been the case at all, I have been trying to introduce the older cat to the kitten bit by bit but...

    Getting another baby!... Maybe!

    Hi everyone! Hope all's been well. Finally, I am looking into getting another kitten. Does anyone have any tips on how to integrate them into my home with Gollum? Gollum is pretty open and non-territorial. He's also up-to-date with all his vaccinations :)
