Hello, I am new to the forum and would like to say hello! My kitty Mia is 10 months old and she is just awesome! I never thought I could love another(let alone a naked one) after raising my 17 year old tuxedo from a baby! Well my tuxedo passed away about 7 months ago and shortly after a tortie was being thrown my way and then a sphynx! Both cute and lovable! The reason I joined is because I have a couple of issues about the naked one! First, is it normal for her to be sooooooo attached to me? When I am not home she cries outside the bedroom door that is closed, when my husband lets her in to show her I'm not there and she finally realizes Im not there then she cries at him! She is very spoiled and will play on her own terms but is it normal for her to cry so much when I am not home, or for attention...because believe me she gets a lot of it! Also, is it normal for the sphynx to get red bumps on their skin. The are not zit like bumps, more like hives. She is 10 months old, eats royal canin canned food only, she is spayed. The vet gave me an oatmeal shampoo, a soothing type of shampoo and it is better than baby shampoo. The vet also gave me hydroxyine to be used twice a day for maybe allergies. Now the hydroxyine helps a lot...it took away her redness and the bumps have gone down...but is this something common in this breed? She gets bathed every 5-7 days because she gets sooooooooooo dirty the day after a bath! It is hard because I do not know if it is an environmental allergy or a food allergy, I would like to give her dry food because there are some days that I am not at home and I cannot feed the both of them in a timely manner. Im going to try royal canin dry rabbit and green pea. Any informaton or link is helpful! Thanks and hello!
