    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!
