    Two better than one?

    Hey guys! I have recently been going back and forth on the idea of getting Norman a girlfriend from the same breeder I got him from last February. It's been only him, my boyfriend and I for the past year so we are really his only source of entertainment 99 percent of the time. I can tell he...

    New sphynx mom :)

    Hi everyone! I recently adopted a 5 year old sphynx cat named Aleister Meowly. I was introduced to this site when I was researching as much as I could about the breed.

    Tricks For Getting Kitties To Eat Wet Food

    So, the vet wants Astrid to eat wet food 1-2 times a week just incase she ever has kidney problems and that is all she can eat. He's had too many cats refusing to eat so he rather get all kitties used to it just to be safe. I have tried three different meats so far (salmon, venison and...

    New Toy! Cat's Meow Motorized Wand

    So, went shopping again.... and we have a new favourite toy! Astrid finds any "play by your self" toys boring. (Like balls, the finger traps, springs any thing like that). If she wants to play, I must be playing with her. Which is awesome until I'm studying. We now have a solution! I was a...

    Da Bird! A first experience for Astrid

    So I went toy shopping today, picked up a couple of the Chinese-fingertrap jumping toys and a da bird! So far Astrid loves it! So we will see how long the feathers last... I think she believes she has wings with the air she is catching to attack it! It is hilarious. Here's a picture of her...

    Because Every Sphynx Needs a Sphinx Play House...

    Hi everybody! Thought someone else would find this cardboard cat playhouse as cool as I do! I won't order one because I refuse to pay 62$ shipping. It's not THAT cool, maybe if it wasn't cardboard..... BUT they have free shipping for the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Germany, the UK...

    Sphynx Cats and Baseboard Heating

    Hi, I am in the process of hopefully getting a sphynx. I am curious if the cats will try and get close to the baseboard heaters and if they do how would I stop them from getting burned/hurt?
