    Is there any downside to using psyllium husk powder regularly?

    Hi everyone! I got my boy almost 3 weeks ago now. For the most part, since I've gotten him, he's had pretty loose stools. He's been dewormed and had a negative fecal at the vet so I'm not really worried about parasites. I know this breed is sensitive so I just assumed it was stress-related and a...

    New sphynx kitten

    Hello everyone! I got a lovely wee sphynx boy a week ago and he seems to be settling in well! Managed to use his litter tray well and eating well too (not drinking much but I hear that’s ok) As of yesterday afternoon he seems to be a bit “off” he meowed and hissed at me cause I was moving his...

    Collar or No Collar?

    Hello Friends, We are bringing our baby Flint home in 2 weeks! We are checking things off the list to get and I am unsure about a collar? Obviously he will be an indoor cat but we will also do some leash training if he takes to it and we have a backpack cat carrier. I was thinking about a...

    New sphynx kitten -Kyng

    This is my new babe Kyng. He is a long legged experimental bambino. He's a blue and white with big beautiful eyes. He's a tank and literally insane, but a cuddle monster. His favorite place to sleep is on my face. My other sphynx , Bean, is really enjoying having a baby brother! Although I...

    New kitten

    Hi everyone! I know that sphynx cats do better in pairs. I've had Fester for almost a year and we've had some issues with him being home alone. He gets lonely considering I'm gone for almost 10 hrs a day. I want to get a kitten friend. Everything I've read has been other owners that either got a...

    My baby Freyja is here!

    We got our kitten on July 4th, 2016 and she was born in March. She is such a ball of energy even after being spayed, but we love her. Our transition from homemade raw to a commercial raw brand was as seamless as her transition to being an only child. She is so cuddly and lovable, I don't...

    Wet FIP

    Hi everyone, we lost our little Laila bug to FIP three weeks ago. We miss her dearly and I've asked on a few other sites about the amount of time we should wait to bring a new baby into the house. It was wet FIP and we have cleaned up and thrown out all of the toys, litter box, food dishes and...

    Luna is home! Now i need help..

    Hey!! We brought Luna home on Saturday! She's wonderful! Behaves unbelievably well, listens (most of the time) she even sleeps in her own bed. She also doesn't mind being in her crate much. We have her bed, blankets, toys in a big crate where she sleeps right next to my bed. My only concern is...

    Getting a 3rd cat - too much?

    Hi all, Bit torn what to do. I've had my female Sphynx Gabbi for a year now which makes her nearly 1.5 years old. I recently (12 days ago) added a male Devon Rex kitten (Oscar) to the family. First few days were shaky but now they're great friends tearing around the house like nutters and...

    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...

    Adding a baby boy?

    Hey Sphynx lovers! I currently have 2 Sphynxies. A 2 year old female named Luna and a 1.5 year old named Midi. My boyfriend and I have always wanted to add a little boy to the mix, but I wanted to get your opinions. I know adding a kitten to an existing household is always a process. Do you...

    Hi. My name is Lisa. I'm new to the sphynx cat. Mine is a pink boy. He's quite lovely and purrs all the time. I've just ordered him a tshirt and a fleece. I'm concerned that he might be cold even though it's summer. My breeder told me to only bathe him once a month. I've read here to...
