I'm curious. Just how smart is a Sphynx? Can they let you know when they are annoyed? When I can't sleep at night I go into the spare bedroom. I always go into Raphael's room and touch her over the blanket and she wakes up and joins me in the spare room and purrs and kneads and cuddles like crazy. The other night when I couldn't sleep I went into her room and touched her, no response. I did this three times and finally on the fourth time I uncovered her, picked her up and carried her into the spare room. She laid down beside me but did not purr and did not knead. Could she have been really annoyed with me because she didn't come on her own free will? I don't recall a time that she didn't purr when I touched her. Do you think she was punishing me? I felt bad that I didn't leave her alone.
