    New sphynx

    Hello all ! I’ve recently adopted a female Dwelf I drove 14 hours to go get her and realized she was sick during the car ride home . Turns out she has conjunctivitis and feline herpes :( I paid 2500 for her and the breeder was pressing me to give her 500 more for breeding rights (even went as...

    It ACTUALLY happened!!

    I am excited to share with all of you that I am officially a Sphynx Mama! I seriously can't believe it really happened. After months of searching, with no luck, I came across this website by chance. Two weeks of perusing and only two days after posting someone actually reached out! A very sweet...

    Older cat not adapting to new kitten! HELP!

    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 :)

    Our new baby finally came home last night!

    I fell in love immediately! She is 13 weeks and just the sweetest little girl ever, already loving and rubbing all over us. We are still deciding between 2 names, but here she is!

    New Sphynx Daddy! Diets, Poos, Biting

    Hey All! Hope you’re all keeping safe! I’ve had my Amara for about 4 weeks now, she’s 12 weeks. I know taking them at 8 weeks isn’t good :( but I didn’t know until after. She’s settled really well. I have some basic questions. Best diet? Right now Amara is on Royal Canine wet & dry food. And...

    Lyra is here! But Oogi hates her

    We were able to go pick up Lyra yesterday and bring her home, but the introduction with Oogi went terribly. He swats at her, growls & hisses a lot and also chases her to deliberately swat. We didn't want to make her scared of him & feel unwelcome in her new house - so we blocked off the...

    Adding another sphynx?

    Hello Lairians, We have had Oogi for about 6 months now and it has been the best thing ever. He is such an amazing cat. We would love to bring another baby home (we have put down a deposit to be back on the list for #2), but we are so worried that Oogi wouldn't take to a buddy. He is super...

    I just received my first sphynx!

    Hello I just got my first male sphynx yesterday! He's a year and half and not fixed yet. He's very sweet and doesn't hiss my other cats are still slightly unsure but trying to get used to him.

    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...

    Morning! My husband and I are picking up our *first* Sphynx kitten at the beginning of December. She'll be 13 weeks when we get her. I've been reading up on here and in a couple of books about what to expect and prepare for, but haven't come across what to do when going away for a couple of...

    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?
