    My entire into the sphynx world was a bumpy start. I spent more than two months in contact with a breeder who seem selfless. She saw I was a college student looking an emotional support cat.

    Maz is scared of our new cat...

    So, my hubs and I have had Maz for about 4 months, and she has settled in really well, and is super snuggly and sweet/ridiculous. She seemed to be getting lonely with no other kitties around, so we rescued a male cat and picked him up on Sunday. Maz is 1 1/2 old, and VERY petite, and our new...
