Ni Hao (hello) Everyone.

We are new to the Sphynx community and recently (September 3, 2018) brought home our 4-month old male treasure. We call him Khafra. If you know ancient Egypt you know Khafra (son of Khufu) was the Pharaoh of the IV Dynasty. Think of the Great Pyramid and Sphinx. Khafra is very special with an abnormal tail (deformed and short). He uses it as a stool and doesn't know better. Makes him extra special to us.

Khafra gets along great with our 7-year old teacup Yorki (Chewbacca). Khafra and Bacca are the same weight (2kg) and Bacca is full grown while Khafra is just 4 months. Khafra already runs the house and Bacca doesn't seem to be too bothered. Bacca is very loving, I know he and Khafra will be best friends in no time.

We live in China and don't have the luxury of specialized vets so we rely a lot on research. I really like the sharing this community provides and we've learned a lot. Khafra has IBS with very soupy diarrhea. He is on meds now and I don't feel too worried as it seems like Khafra's issues are pretty normal. We are looking into making food for Khafra as we don't trust manufactured food and feel homecooked meals are best for his digestive system.

Khafra is very loving and is extremely smart. He knows his name already, knows when its time to eat. Lets us wipe off his feet (after using the litterbox) and he doesn't mind us trimming his nails. Most of all, Khafra knows when its bedtime. He purrs so loud it can be heard outside the bedroom. He is a snuggler and isn't shy to ask for love.

We will hopefully contribute to the site.

Regards,

Khafra, Bacca, David & Tina

Hello and welcome. I would love to see more pictures of Khafra. What a great name! IBS can sometimes be really difficult to get through.
I do have some information on raw here: Raw Cat Food Information
Also, @Condo commando is a font of information.
Again, welcome.
