    Why do you consider Sphynx to be the best breed (if you do)? If you were to sum up your reasoning into 1-2 sentences, what would you say?
    I am thinking of adding some quotes from Sphynx lovers, to the book.

    Also, this book is going to be dedicated to the Sphynx kitties taken too soon by HCM . If you have any information you'd like me to include on HCM, please let me know- Whether it's from personal exprience, or a site you feel has good info and needs to be shared with the public.

    And last, but not least- do you have any bath time pics you'd like to share in the book? I have 1 photo of a Sphynx taking a bath, and that's it! I would like to show how good most of them are with the water :-D I am still taking general submissions as well, but time is running out if we are to get this done by Christmas ;-)

    Hmm, I'll have to think about this and get back to ya. No pictures of bath time, just videos. Besides, I don't think you'd want to include freaking out bath time pictures in your book.

      I'd love to include bathtime pics, but since I usually giver her bath while I am having mine...well, lets just say the camera is not allowed in the bathroom, nor would I want anyone to see them!
      lol

        A quote, per request:

        Where else can one get kitty cuddles without subsequent lint-rolling?

          No other cat also serves as a hot water bottle.

          No bath pics-Keemo isn't so fond of the bath!

            Why I prefer sphynx over any other cat? Personality. I have a really intense relationship with my sphynx, something that I've never gotten from other kitties.

              Is it Kreachers bath picture? I did post a picture of him in the sink with bubbles on his head in another thread you had posted?

                These cats are the most loving animals I have ever had. They make no secret of their unabashed love for their people. It's the greatest feeling on Earth to be owned by a sphynx!

                  The nakedness may attract you but the purrsonality will keep you. I was blown away when I got my first Sphynx. They are so intuitive and so interactive, you would think we've known each other for years instead of days or months!

                  As for a quote...I think I've said this before:
                  When nature left out the fur, it added personality!

                    I think the quote from Mike and Buterball should be from his intro video...
                    "you can poop on the floor, I'll clean it up later"...Now that shows perfectly the things we are willing do for our little naked babies!:LOL:

                      I totally agree! So many people at my work say the meanest things about my kitties. Yesterday my boss said, "they look like something that should be fed to a snake!"
                      Gee, thank you. I asked him if he'd enjoy the same comment directed tword his 7 year old son. He said his son wasn't ugly, so it wouldn't make a difference. Ha! That's what he thinks ;-)
                      These little animals have such pure hearts, and as someone else said, I have never had such an intense relationship with an animal (and I am a huge animal lover). I get sad when I have to go to work because I am leaving my 5 Sphynx, and I'm excited to come home just to hold and kiss them!

                      I have never experienced so love and joy from any other animal. Sometimes I think my Sphynx know me better than any one else.

                      I totally agree! I have an issue with severe cramps (sorry if TMI) and I mean SEVERE, land me in the ER, severe. My oldest, Mischa, without fail will be by my side and nuzzling my stomach! She will purr and cuddle with me, be it on the bathroom floor or the bed. She just knows when I'm in pain and it seems like she knows where the pain is coming from! I have taken to calling her Nurse Mischa now :BigSmile:

                      We called Gollum, Nurse Kitty, as he was always by my side when I was under the weather. Tanker later took on the role with my children and always kept watch over them when they were sick.

                      The thing I liked about owning a Sphynx was they seemed to want to forge a personal relationship with their humans beyond feeding, napping and play time.

                      In my experience hairless animals are much more human-oriented than their hairy relatives. I have peterbalds, chinese cresteds and skinny pigs (hairless guinea pigs) and all of them are much more focussed on their humans than hairy animals. Perhaps it's coincidence - although I doubt it.. I've had orientals and siamese for a long time and although they are very human-focussed too, peterbalds are even more focussed, plus their personality is even friendlier IMO. :Laugh: As soon as I sit down on the couch, I'm covered in dogs and cats. All want to sit as close as possible to me. :Wink:

                      On a purely speculative note, we humans have be referred to as mostly hairless primates -- given that, is it any wonder that we get along with other baldies?

                      The Sphynx cats in my life have meant so much to me. Having had sooo many cats and pets in my life, I have found this breed by far is the most amazing. My mother asked me the other day, "where do they get their huge personallity"? I told her that I supposed that it was in the genetics - I really don't know. My first impression was "wow, what a good study on cat anatomy". As an artist I thought it was amazing that you could see the muscle tone, veins and the bone structure. I am addicted to them visually like they are eye candy to me. I love the way they move. Also, I am a big ear person and love a cat with big ears and big and expressive eyes. Another addiction I have is petting a Sphynx. It lowers my blood pressure and my mood is elevated when I run my hands across that smooth and super soft body. It's like stroking a new born human head - soooo soft. The communication is awsome because it is like we are talking to each other through body language and telepathy. Wow - I could carry on for hours to people that already get this. OK thats my bit.

                        Everyone!
                        It looks like I need to change the format of the release form, so I'm trying to do that right now and will send the rest out!
                        Just wanted to give a heads up, so those of you haven't received a release yet, don't think their pictures aren't going to be used! :ThumbsDown::ThumbsDown::ThumbsDown:

                        I would say the Sphynx is not just a pet...it's an adventure...

                        No bath pics but who knows if you're still looking I may have to post a few.

                          I'd say:
                          Sphynxes aren't cats, they're companions. Anyone who thinks that cats don't show the same loyalty or affection as dogs hasn't met a Sphynx. They come running when the front door opens, they freak out calling for you when they wake up and find themselves alone in a room, and they need as much skin to skin contact as they can possibly get. It's impossible not to love them when you see the adoring look they constantly bestow on you.

                          My first Sphynx Anubis, whom we lost to HCM in April, taught us that life without a Sphynx in the house just isn't worth living. :) We miss him very much, but we have three others to help make it a little less painful.
