    Long story short, I've been watching this darling since he was born, and I just couldn't resist. His breeder and I have been talking about what it takes to show a cat, so I'm buying this baby as a show prospect :) She wanted to keep him, but she treats her cats like family members, and worries about her current stud causing problems as he matures, so she's letting him go to me, under the understanding I'll keep in close contact with her and show him. She wants me to keep him in tact for now because she may want to use him in a breeding program later, which I'm happy to do - for now! If he starts marking in the house or having other undesirable tom cat behavior then the breeder said as long as I talk to her about it first, I can get him neutered, so I'm ok with it :)

    Anyway, he's only 6 weeks, so I've got another 6 weeks still before he comes home, but I just couldn't keep it a secret any longer!!!! His name is Piglet right now, but I'm probably going to change that - any suggestions?

    Thanks! No, I'm probably not keeping the name - I'm looking for ideas on a new name for him, any suggestions (other then Butterball LOL)?

    UMM I did love MJ so without sounding nasty he was more white than black in the past few years! So MJ or Mikey is still my vote.

    I also liked Michael Jackson - But honestly, I don't want to name a cat after him, just simply for the fact that I have a strong feeling there's going to be ALOT of animals named after him in the next little while!!! He was a great musician, I really liked his earlier stuff, and watching his little girl on the memorial yesterday nearly broke my heart - I feel bad for his kids!

    I'll have to go on Facebook and see! I'm going to start in TICA, maybe go to CFA later - Do the papers cross register? I believe he only comes with TICA papers.

    I'm quite biased but I'm glad you're not keeping the name Piglet....that's my sphynx's name and there can't be more than one Piglet here on Sphynx Lair...LOL!

    Your little guy is adorable, though! He's little but has a tough guy look about him. Here are my name suggestions, for what it's worth:

    Joe DiMaggio (you can call him "Joey" for short)
    Mickey Mantle (another baseball hero)
    Stuart Little (from the Disney film)
    Spanky (from "The Little Rascals")
    Alfalfa (can't you tell I love the "Little Rascals"...LOL!)

    I personally really like "Spanky", because that's who your kitten reminds me of the most! :LOL:

    You need to send the blue slip you get with the cat to TICA then after you get the Tica number you send a copy of the TICA papers to CFA.
    TICA is fast but CFA takes forever to send the reg number.
    I mostly show in CFA because there are not many TICA shows that are less then 3 hours from here.
    I will be showing in TICA in October for the first time.

    I could see him as a Spankey, but I also think Mickey would be a cute name for him..... I'll have to see if any of these names fit him! I'll go see him in a week and a half, I'm out of town right now, but can't wait, he'll be 8 weeks then (he was born 05/24), and only 4 weeks away from being able to go home with me!

    I think if your going to show him he has to have a real regal name something like
    Sir Finaghan-Fin for short

    Boy is he cute though and so is his sister and brother...just want to take them all home:Laugh:

    Ya, that's my problem - I do want to take them all home! But for now, 3 is enough LOL I do want something more elegant since he'll be a show cat. But, as we all know, a 3 month old Sphynx kitten is anything but elegant - gangly bunch of untamed trouble maker is more like it LOL
