Hi my name is Lisa... I just recently got a Sphynx kitten from a friend of the family who breeds them. My little fellow was injured when he was only 4 days old. His cornea was scratched by a litter mate. Poor guy is only just over 4 months old and has had 4 surgeries if you include his neuter. His eye was removed 2 weeks ago after trying everything we could to try and save it. So I have a one eyed no furred friend. I don;t really mind that he has only one eye. It doesn`t make a difference to me because he is still a really cool cat. The vet did a very good job on him and the incession is healing very neatly. I have never been a cat lover. Actually haven`t really had a cat for over 20 years but this guy is really something. I cannot believe how affectionate he is. Very differenent from other cats I have been exposed to over the years! I mean wow he is just so personable. He seems more dog like in character than cat like. He even like to play fetch. He is so loving with my 2 chihuahuas. Just thought I would drop in and see if anyone has any special tips for brands of food... Type of soap to use when bathing him... Right now I have him on Science diet which is what my breeder friend suggested... But I want to know what the best is for these guys... Also I have been using Johnson`s liquid no tear baby soap to bathe him. Is that good for his skin. Also he likes to spend lots of time sunbathing in the window. Do I have to worry about skin cancer. Should he be wearing sunscreen... Haven`t figured out how to upload a picture to share with you quite yet. My kitten is black. His skin is very dark. He has absolutely no hair except a bit on his mussle and some on the backs of his ears. A tiny little bit on his tale as well. He has a very vivid green eye.
