    New sphynx owner - questions!

    Hello! I'm new to the site and also new sphynx mom! I've always wanted a cat, but have always had very bad cat allergies until I found this breed. One of my good friends has two full grown sphynx males - and I just absolutely adored them and only had mild symptoms at most! I was so excited. I...

    Question about using L-lysine

    So I already have lysine for myself, and I was wondering if anyone uses the "human" lysine for their cats? I read that people do do that, but I wanted to double check on safety, and get some more information. Thanks everyone! :p:LOL::pShontae:LOL::p:LOL:

    I have a SPHYNX and a CORNISH REX

    Hi Sphnxlair Community I got a lovely little Sphynx from a family who had to travel for work, My Cornish Rex Male was NOT HAPPY to have a little "sister". He actually scratched her and drew blood. A wise woman who did cat rescue gave me advice. Put both cats in sweaters then the next day...

    Concerned about a potential heart murmur...

    Hi, SphynxLair! Two weeks ago, all of my hopes were answered - I had been put into contact with a distant acquaintance that needed to re-home his 8-year-old Sphynx, Gaston. Gaston was bought as a gift by an ex-boyfriend, and had been consistently been in good health. This acquaintance needed...

    :cat::cat::cat::cat: Hello All! I'm new to the site :D. My family of 3 just took in a Sphynx from a friend. As this is a site for our hairless creatures, I'd like to tell you his story.

    Icarus - Gotcha Day (2/215)

    Woooo!!! He's here! After months of patience since seeing him when he was just 5 weeks old, he's now purring and in and out of snoozing next to me. What was great was coming back to the breeder's home and Icarus jumping up my leg knowing it was me. The trip back was amusing - had to go via...

    My $100 Sphynx Cat (How I Met Miss Demeanor)

    "Cats are furry terrorists, and hairless cats are tiny Voldemorts." I lol'd. It looked true, at least from the YouTube video. I didn't give it a second thought, until I saw Kitty for the first time in almost four years. Her ginger ears swiveled ominously rearwards as she saw me approaching the...

    Info on sphynx cats?

    Hi! I love cats, but I'm not allowed to have one because they shed fur. A lot. However, my mom promised me I could have a hairless one if I could find one. My question is- is there anything special I need to know about sphynxs? All the info I've seen conflicts with itself, so I'm just asking...
