Man. I’ve missed Sphynxlair (usually follow on Facebook) and the unity and love of the breed here. I usually lurk but haven’t posted nor have I even chimed in on any threads (sorry guys!). A lot has happened since we’ve brought Kit-Kat (now Mr. Beats) home and labored over his many ails at the time. Going back through my history was a nail-biting experience. He’s been healthy since then, very healthy. He weighs a whopping 13 pounds. Goodness! We’ve also introduced two more kitties since we’ve gotten him. Both rescues and both moggies. A sweet, petite black female: Sephira. She’s lovely but particular. She is so far on the other end of tolerance, total diva. We adore her though. Then we got a Maine Coon mix, Linux. Most laidback, fluffy little trilling, pancake making slobber machine. He is loved as well but he only loves my husband. NOW, we are adding another and this time will be another dream kitty: a lykoi (a sweet tabby girl with the most beautiful mask). I realize this is a sphynx forum and I’m only 1 in 4 here but....she’s partially bald, in some places and only some times throughout the year. Hahahahaha. Anyhow, I’ll leave pictures of all my babes and soon to be babes here for everyone. I hope to be around much more since you guys are always so knowledgeable and supportive and I don’t feel like such a crazy cat lady here.

Welcome back! That's a lovely bunch you've got. Plus a lykoi coming, I'm so jealous. Do I dare ask the pricetag on that one? I've been following this breed, dreaming of one day having one of my own. Here in little Sweden there is one breeder, I think, and the prices are high. Can't wait for you to share gotcha day and all the following adventures to come! You are truly blessed with so many stunning babies.

Her gotcha day is Jan 19th and sweet girl will be 14 weeks. I forget how tiny sweet kittens are, until I’m holding them. She’s a tiny 4 pounder. Her price was $1800, so not too far off of sphynx prices. I guess some breeders may charge more though, possibly. I guess your issue would be a long waiting list in Sweden though. I sure hope my kitties except her fully and show her the ropes.

Yes, you are right! I'm waiting and keeping eyes and ears open. Sweden is a small country compared to US. The prices here are a lot higher for lykoi, if you even can get one. I'm thinking sometime in the future I could get lucky! In the mean time I'll live through you...;)

Welcome back! Only 6 days to go till Gotcha Day. How exciting. Hope you’ll post a lot of gotcha day pic. I mean, since a lykoi is sometimes naked we can see them as kind of sphynx right?
What a beautiful crew you have, love all the pics

Gosh, is it only 6? Feels like an eternity. I’m so glad to have kitty companions this go around or I might go mad. My husband is driving with a friend to pick her up, so I’ll have all that anticipation too. I will definitely be taking (and posting. Lol) lots of pictures. I’m very excited to see to what degree she is hairless or not. Apparently they change often throughout the year, aside from molting. So....I hope to get a timeline of her changes.

She’s here (since 1:30 am) and she’s so nervy and I just didn’t expect it at all. I’ve been awake since 7:30 am yesterday because she yowled and cried ALL morning. She just finally fell asleep and now I’m not even tired. Haha. Figures. Anyhow, she’s perfect and so TINY.

I didn’t get many pictures because of the room we have her in, it’s dark plus....tired. Lol. She adores this carrier, especially the bubble in it. I’ll post more pictures later, for sure.

Thank your Yoda mom. It’s been a difficult morning. She’s still so nervous and wants to be loved and is purring but also doesn’t want to be touched. This is HARD. All my kittens have come home with confidence, so I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t know what to do with her.

Congratulations! I can’t wait to see her personality blossom once she feels comfortable.

@GabbyJ best thing you can do now is being patient. Go sit somewhere, as close as possible and just talk to her. Put some kibbles or treats in front of her.
She'll get used to you and before you know it she'll let you pet her.
