    Hello from Toronto! I'm new!

    Hi all, After lurking here for sometime I finally joined the Lair, and I just became the proud new mama to my 5 month old boy! He was well cared for, but the family's five year old son developed and allergy to him so they had to re-home. We connected and I bought and brought him home Saturday...

    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.

    My kittens eyes

    since I've gotten my kitten her right eye has always seemed to want to close. I took her to the vet for a visit and he said everything looked fine and to keep an eye on it, there is no discharge but still she continues to want to keep the eye closed . Does anyone know what this could be from?

    HELP! Odd skin rash or bump

    We just just got our sphynx kitten last week. When we got her she had a scab on her back that has gotten bigger and is dry, hard and scaly to touch. It seems to be getting bigger. I brought her to the vet and he was not sure what it was. There is only one but it is the weirdest spot. I have...

    I am new to the breed and I just wanted to get some opinions from you guys! My new kitten will be 17 weeks on Thursday.

    New Sphynx Mommy

    Hello All! I am going to be a new sphynx mommy in december. I am very nervous because I have a 1 year cat already. I love her dearly and I am afraid she won't take to the new kitten or resent us for adding a member of the family.
