Hi everyone,

My name is Cathy from Toronto. Looking to learn more from experienced Sphynx lovers and guardians here.

My boyfriend and I are deeply owned by our two well-behaved and sweet girls, Peaches (nakie) and Harley (raggie), now 6 and 9 mo.

H has a fascination about bathrooms and always has the “smugs” as she prances away heads up with her caught toy. P, on the other hand, acts like a total baby and half silly and half the drama queen when we put clothes on her. Interestingly, P sleeps early with a consistent schedule. She never fails to tell me when the litter box needs cleaning or when she thinks I didn’t give her enough food. She knows! Lol

We both love them to death and our life is so much richer with them in it.

Thanks for reading :)

Harley is actually Harley Quinn and is a shoulder cat so her version of riding is on our shoulders ;) beaded froggie keychain is from an art fair but saw similar ones online. {}

@CathyO hello
Checking in on Peaches and Harley

Thanks lovely for checking in. My girls are growing up!! Early this week Harley the ragdoll has her *um* first period. If there is a video upload here I would upload her vid it’s so funny she responds when I ask her if she’s in heat, but it’s also heartbreaking to hear her calls. I’ve watched Dr. Becker’s warning against spaying so I thought of delaying at least after her first heat. My dad used to be a vet and he also recommends to wait at least after the first heat so the animal at least gets some “hormones” in their body.

ANYWAY, on the less serious stuff: my cuddle cat Peaches the sphynx is now acting like a teenager *cough, cough* and she is in her Minnie Mouse cat cave phase. Only sleeping there and not with me anymore unless it’s morning and she wants her food. I gave in last night and put the huge cat cave on my chest and dunked my face at the entrance ***shame, no shame*** “Peaches, I seeeeee youuuuuuuuu hiiiii”, says I your deprived cat slave.

Some of their pics this week: Harley sleeping in her usual eclectic position (sometimes she sleeps with her eyes open or twitches like crazy while dreaming). Peaches when she’s cuddly in the morning after breakfast or afternoons only (according to her).

Hello you all! I was just supposed to update here but got lost commenting away at other people’s post. This forum is truly wonderful. Full of people who genuinely want to know about your daily musing about your kitties. Outside sphynxlair, I know I have to watch myself not to overshare my cats to people who have no pets, let alone a cat.

Anyway, Peaches is still in her same PJs (newly washed) coz I haven’t ordered another one yet but I thought I’d share how she melts my heart whenever she stays in this “baby” position acting all flimsy and silly at the same time.

She’s the only one who can transport me into this melted feeling of pure cuteness when she does this. How about you? Do u have a kitty who makes u melt? What is it exactly that s/he does that makes u go gaga?

Then I look down at the floor and guess who I see with a “How ‘bout meeeeee” look (last pic).

Just me and my life with cats,

CAThy

Your babies are beautiful and I’m so glad you are here! This is my favorite forum by a landslide (and I’m on a lot of them). I think it’s because of the people. Everyone here TRULY cares about other people and their kitties.

Just updating: Harley got spayed about 2 wks ago and her cone of shame/onesie will be off after tom. Yay! It’s been one of the more stressful weeks as I didn’t know until it was too late already that Toronto Humane Society will be using ketamine. Thank goodness everything went fine! I noticed she no longer “nibbles” but instead finishes her servings in one go. Quite handy as she needs to gain more weight as a ragdoll..she was so happy to see all her stuff/territory as soon as she got home.

Amusing her for the time being has been fruitful.

Today, Peaches got growled at followed up by a Paw Smack by Harley when she, again, did not respect “treat boundaries”. Good thing her royalty doesn’t let it get her down.

I knowww! I’m just at the Cardiology clinic right now. Harley finally gets to have her echo cardiogram done to rule out any heart issues before going to a neurologist to see if she has focal dystopia.

Poor little thing this afternoon is the day her cone/onesie will be off but I had to put her back to her now dreaded carrier. She used to love playing in there.
