On Saturday, I found advertised online a 5 week old Sphynx and Persian mixed kitten for adoption. while I’ve dreamed of having a Sphynx for year this little guy stole my heart and piqued my curiosity!

Apparently his dad is a Sphynx and his mom is a white Persian. The lady who I got him from told me his hair might come and go with the seasons. We will have to see but he is very very soft and his hair ranges from long on his back and tail to thin and fuzzy on his head and legs

He’s wildddd! Jumping on everything climbing all over, even attacking my mouth when I’m chewing. But when it’s time to sleep he’s cuddly and sleeps on my shoulder. He’s full of personality

I don’t have a name yet, I first wanted a cat named Quaye.... but he’s not zen at all he’s a little sh*t so I might name him Bungi. No name is set in stone he a scrappy little thing so maybe Scrappy

He does actually look a lot like a Lykoi. Beautiful kitty. And the personality will cool off. He’s a kitten right now so there’s no stopping him!

Congratulations! What a beautiful cutie. Very curious to see how he will develop with his fur!
Do I understand correctly he went home with you? With 5 weeks he’s still very young. Normally kittens socialize and learn what’s good (play) and not good (attacking your mouth) from their mommy. Now you can be his mom and learn him everything a kitten needs to know!

Yes I have him now.. the people I got him from told me he is 5 weeks but I have a hunch he’s more like 6 or 7. Only based on the amouth of teeth and his impressive jumping and climbing skills lol!

I am teaching him to play with toys and hands are off limits!
Last night he slept on my shoulder and licked my face every time he woke up! Lmao I’m so happy he inherited his Sphynx affection!

Hi all!! Little man has officially been with me for a week and it’s crazy how fast they grow! I have a few photos to update! I booked a vet visit next week when I have a day off from work!

I also don’t have a name yet.... I know I know It’s horrible! I was thinking about Curteous Frog lol, Walter, Cherry, or Bonki

Lol I know they are all so different and I think it’s just going to be whichever I end up calling him the most :/:/ i hate naming things it’s too much commitment!

Hi all! Quick update! I’ve settled on a name! Courteous Bonks, although it’s usually just Bonks or Bonki or stinky curt :)

He is double the size when I first got him. He still sleeps on my neck but every night feels a little more like I’m being smothered!!

His energy is out of this world and he likes to dart out of my apartment . Yesterday I came home and he was nowhere to be found... I tore my apartment apart for 20 minutes. I finally checked the hallway/stairs(I live in a 3 story walk up in Brooklyn) and he was crouching by the door to the street!!! I figured he must have just ran out before I had a chance to notice when entered! I’m going to put a bell around his neck so I can at least hear him!

His hair is still short and thinand light grey on his belly and under his limbs and chin. As he is growing he’s looking a lot more like a normal little kitty which isn’t a bad thing at all, but thankfully he acts a lot like a spynx(minus the meows... he barely makes any noise). On his back and tail is longer darker hairs. He’s soooo soft I’ve never felt a cat so soft and he still isn’t shedding at all that I can notice might be his Persian moms genes who knows at this point.

Here are a few photos I got my boyfriend to take of him. He is a photographer who only shoots 35mm. Very lucky to have him to capture these

@Lukassmile omg Bonks is abosultely adorable!
Thank goodness you located him!
They are lightening fast !
Is he microchipped?

Many members use bells and breakaway collars
Tagging @Catzzzmeow for the brand of her crews amazing collars

i had to train mine to a spot using treats of course to a meet and greet spot because they weee too curious about the door ! They would sit at the very corner and as soon as it opened tried to get their head out to explore!

Hesd smooches to Bonks!
Thanks for the great adorable update!
