Hi everyone!,

My name is Heather and I just got my first sphynx. His name is Thales and I have had him for a month. He's 5 1/2 months old now. He is the best cat I have ever had!! I

have two standard house cats and although I love them very much, I have always wanted a sphynx and now know exactly why!! He is soooo cuddly and sweet, but since he's still a kitten he is still rambunctious and playful as ever when the mood strikes.

I have bought tons of little sweaters for him, but since they are made for dogs, they don't fit as nice as I would like...Does anyone know of any great websites to look for better fitted sweaters?

I am so excited to be a new member of this site and can't wait to read on and post on!

Thanks so much for the replies! I will be sure to check out the clothes at those places!

Here are some other pics of him!

Oh, and I forgot to write out his name phoenetically...it is pronounced a bit differently than it reads. It's Thales (pronounced Thay-Lees). It's an ancient Greek philosopher's name. I just finished a philosophy degree in university and figured my new kitty deserved a distinguished name!

I hope uploading the pics works! *fingers crossed*Thales pic 1.jpg

Don't buy new smaller sweaters. Kitty will outgrow them in no time. The sweaters you do have will probably fit perfectly in a few months. Butterball is up to wearing small and is already outgrowing those.

Good advice butterball. Get the cheap stuff when they are little then get the nicer ones that are made for Sphynx when they are grown to adulthood. Thales is a great name and he is super cute.

i took a lot of those classes too.. and classical civilizations! and mythology... so i love those types of names!!! i was considering "anaxiamander" for mine but couldn't figure out a good nickname i liked enough! lol other than "naxi"... and i didn't feel like explaining it each time someone asked... so he got "Dorian"
but i love love love the name thales!! :ThumbsUp::LOL:

Welcome here! Oh wow! I just think he's gorgeous! I just love his coloring and blue eyes! He IS quite the fashionable one, isn't he? I agree with Mike, they outgrow stuff way to quick to spend much on stuff right now. I went hog-wild buying my Jack (my first and only sphynx--8 mos. old tomorrow) all kinds of sweaters/t-shirts/robes etc....and now a whole bunch are in a box...just in case he gets a little brother ;-)

Welcome to the lair! Thales is a great name for such a handsome little guy. I agree with the others, buy him cheap clothes now and wait until he's an adult for the nicer stuff. It can be hard to find clothes that fit a sphynx, seems like it's mostly trial and error.

Welcome to the lair!!
I also agree about the clothes, my boy is nearly 8 months and just outgrowing a 'XS' :'( Soon he'll be a big cat LOL

Thank-you so much everyone for your replies!! You've made me feel so welcome!

You're all right...he has captured my heart like nothing before. I don't know how I ever lived without a sphynx!!

And danimcd, I LOVE the name Dorian!! It's beautiful!

I will wait until he is bigger to buy more clothes for him, but I have to admit, it will be extremely hard for me to wait!:Laugh:
