    Buying a rehomed sphynx, thoughts/tips/suggestions?

    I have been in search of an emotional support animal and after extensive research I’ve fallen in love with Sphynx. My preference is to have an older cat and I found someone rehoming 3 Sphynx cats, 1 of which is a 4 year old male. They are asking $800 for a rehoming fee, he is fixed and the owner...

    My cat peed on my bed for the first time. Should I be worried?

    So I recently adopted a kitten named tofu. He is currently 4 months old, and has been with us for about 2 weeks. He is active but also sleeps a lot. Has been vaccinated and last checked was healthy, just slightly underweight (has gained weight since he's with me). He has no issue with litter...

    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!

    Rescued and returned a sphynx in January, now owner wants to give it to us.

    Hey there! So January 2017 we heard a cat making awful noises outside (sounded like a baby crying!!!) and went outside to investigate. It was one of our colder nights here in Canada with the temp hitting around -30C (-22 F) so I was very surprised to find a naked kitty under our snow covered...

    Poof the Peterbald

    I absolutely love my baby so much! But because she is a peterbald, a new breed that's pretty rare, not many know what would be best for her health. If anyone has advice or tips, it would be much appreciated!!

    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.
