    Hi all! I have been a sphynx lover my entire life, but have yet to own one. (I do, however, have a tattoo that has won many awards on my arm - see my profile picture!) I've been doing a lot of research, and finally found a breeder that I love. Put a deposit down today, and can't wait to get my furless baby home!

    Being a newbie, I look forward to help and support here. Can't wait to share and meet you all.

                I do have an update!! Meet my little guy. He will come home in August. I got to meet him and I am so in love already. We are still tossing around names, and could definitely use some help! Here are some of the contenders:
                -Ripley
                -Tucker
                -Sawyer
                -Jasper
                -Remy

                Any other suggestions are definitely welcome!! 35490870_10156367478383232_8860959054286028800_n.jpg Sphynx (2).jpg Sphynx 2 (2).jpg

                        Thanks everyone. Obviously he's a little dirty, and still VERY tiny. Getting really anxious to bring him home. I'm in that "nesting" phase, and am trying to gather up all of the things I will need to take care of him. A little overwhelmed with cleaning supplies, and what I will need to keep him looking and feeling great. I see lots of different opinions on what soap to use, what to clean ears with...etc. Just want to be prepared!

                          What a cute little squirt. You will learn as you go. We were a;l newbies at some time lol. You will find a few things people become opinionated about and the reason being as it works for them. Food, shampoo, and litter are just a few of them. Enjoy the journey.

                          He is beyond adorable. I like the names Jasper and Remy best I think :) but all of them would suit him.

                          @jlewis0608 , so excited for you ! That cute little face! Those eyes!
                          We all learn and grow together here - the things we use evolve amd we learn what works best for our babies as we go-
                          I still change things up from time to time with the suggestions and experiences shared by all

                          This is such a fun friendly down to earth bunch
                          So glad you joined us!

                          Keep the adorable updates coming ! Looking forward to your journey with us

                          You have a fantastic list of names - the right one will stick

                          I started with basics amd adjusted as I went along - you will find what works best for your baby .
                          One of the best tips I got was to get a pair of exfoliating gloves! Helps hold slippery kitty amd gets them nice and clean on spa day

                          The one thing I totally recommend is kitty proof for life :)

                          These little monkeys get into , onto, over , under, on top of everything they can - amd like to taste test everything too! I compare it to what others describe as a permanent two year old lol

                          Watch hot stove tops , washers , dryers , Keeping toilet lids down , opening and closing doors slowly and lookimg underfoot - they are lightening fast !

                          Welcome to the journey!

                              I have several names narrowed down too, and would love some help/votes on these...

                              Suki
                              Ruthie
                              Piper
                              Poppy
                              Mila
                              Yoko
                              Rumi
                              Kiwi

                              She will most likely have green eyes (not sure yet) but if so, I also like the name Jade. :)

                                @AbstractJax , I thought of the name Olive ? Olivia?
                                Perhaps Google search green names ?
                                I am not sure at what age they Have their permanent eye color
                                Something to ask the breeder
                                Jade is a great name ! See @Toa and Ross gorgeous Jade kitty
                                The right name will stick often times om gotcha day or even several days later

                                          Love all the names. It really depends on her character I guess. But looking at her pic now I think Poppy suits her.
                                          Of course I also looooooove the name Jade (since my girls name is Jade;-)
