    Sphynx tan?

    I know the topic of Sphynx, the sun, skin discolouration comes up a lot but I haven’t seen this exact question. Does anyone’s Sphynx get a tan in the sunnier/warmer months? It has recently transitioned to becoming very sunny and warm where I live and my 18mo Sphynx has developed slight ‘tan’...

    Sun woes

    Hey all! My baby Link can’t get enough of the sun. Unfortunately I work late afternoon till early morning so it’s tough keeping a watchful eye on him to ensure he doesn’t burn (he is not an outdoor cat). Any ideas on how to keep him protected?! I’ve tried buying him clothes and pet friendly...

    Mysterious White Bumps

    My baby Nayls is almost 4 and I've noticed these raised bumps above his skin. We've taken him to the vet, and they said that it was nothing to worry about. We've tried squeezing them and nothing comes out. He's not annoyed by them, doesn't scratch at them, or pick at them. The've just been...

I live on the third floor technically, so cannot have her getting curious and trying to wiggle under the bars. So...

    Astrid's Adventures: Sun Tanning

    So it's decent weather today, and Astrid wanted to go outside lol she proceeded to lounge around and roll. The cement blocks get pretty warm so I'm assuming that's why She can't be allowed out yet alone: don't need a suicide jumping cat through the bars, so have to figure something out. She's...

    Sun Screen

    My boy LOVES to go outside and I'm pretty careful not to let him get too much sun. I want to get him one of those thin uv reflective suits to wear but I need to wait until he's finished growing. Do any of you use pet sunscreen on your kitties? What brand do you recommend? Feel free to link me to...
