I wish I could have made this a poll but couldn't figure out how! So please choose from these:

1. I didn't know my Sphynx had vocal cords!
2. They only speak if they need something and they are being ignored.
3. They participate in our usual human conversation, but not excessively.
4. They talk with us and then some!
5. Please for the love of all Holiness WHERE is their off button?!!

Thanks for participating!

Toa is 1. I really think he has no voice:)
Jade is 2. Only when the food bowl is empty she makes some noise and when she sees birds
Ross is uuuhhh...3 or something. Thing is he doesn't talk. He YELLS!

This is great!
I have a whole house full of #5!
We love all the talking but woo! They can really get going.

At home, Marcus is about a 2. Cleo is a 5 at home. We cannot turn her off! She has her opnions and speaks them constantly.
When they are in the car, it is exactly the opposite. Marcus will NOT shut up, and Cleo rides very quietly, unless Marcus is harassing her.

Dmitri's a 3, Iroh's probably a 4. They both chat with you (more if they're hungry). Dmitri will respond when you talk to him or ask him questions. Iroh is more prone to making noises just as he trundles around the house. Every time he walks somewhere, he'll 'mrrt mrrt mrrt' until he gets to where he's going. Interestingly, when Dmitri meows it sounds like a statement, and when Iroh meows, it sounds like a question.

Leo is a 2, Molly is a 5. Gawd, does she ever get annoying. When she really drives us nuts, we heat up towels in the dryer. Then she hops in, makes a bed, and gives us a few hours of peace.

Agnes is between a 4 and a 5! If she is not constantly talking or making chirps she's asleep. I love it though and will talk back to her. My husband might wonder where my off button is lol!

Wow, I made this and never replied?! Well, if any of you were wondering, Uber is a 2.5 because he generally just vocalizes around mealtime or if he needs to draw something to our attention. The past couple days he's been especially purry.

Bonus picture of him sprawled out in front of the fireplace! (It's pretty big, sorry. Should have made the thumbnail)

Max and Min are usually a 2, but in certain circumstances it goes straight to a 5.

Max will yowl endlessly to go outside and scrabble against the door for additional annoyance.

When Min has her episodes of desperately needing play time I wish I could find an off switch -- this happens often when I'm on the phone with a client. Thankfully my clients know I have an "office cat".

Orpheus is definitely a 2 he only really speaks when it's dinner time or if he is going to the toulet haha. But if he thinks there is a bug in the house or he looses a bug he is a 4-5 for hours afterwards still yelling about it haha

10 Elfie is a TEN!!!!!!
Toothless on the other hand; if you don’t almost sit on her when she’s under the blankets you wouldn’t know she even could talk!
