I only have a female Sphynx so I wanted to ask you guys out of curiosity if you guys see a difference between your male and female sphinxes? I had wanted a male thinking they were more cuddly but when I saw my Nabi I fell in love and got her. She is very sweet and cuddly (except when she wants to teeth on my hand lol). She just absolutely LOVES being petted everywhere from head chin belly to toes (there is not one place she does not like being touched). She is playful and independent but also follows me everywhere. Cuddling is on both our terms and she doesn't mind. She's not a big talker but sometimes she will meow here and there and she purrs when she's on her favorite blanket or being petted. She also has this deer-like jump which is so cute and jumps over spots when I am cleaning the floor and loves to observe me cleaning her litterbox lol. Anyways, I know each cat has their own distinct personality (would love to hear your cat's personalities) but have you guys noticed a general trend between males and females?

Overall we have found our male cats to be a bit more cuddly. Our girls have all cuddled with us, but the boys have been more so. We thought we were going to get a male kitten for Christmas and we had pick of the litter….but one kitten called to us the most and we got a female. She is just as cuddly as the boys at this stage…we shall see how she is as she gets older I guess LOL. Our experience with females is they like to cuddle on their own terms.

@babymeow , past decade 4 nakids. 3 males, 1 female . all adoptees

My girl is very velcro cuddly with Me.. she is the boss of her "underlings" boys, even though she is the teeniest girl. she look so fragile, not to fool anyone, she is all heart.

she can have a prissy prissness to her. she tells the boy watch she thinks if they want her blankie, and decides where they sleep on the bed ,she bops them on the head and complains to move them over to watch she wants to be their spot/blankie next to me.

My boys have all been a little more laid back personality, especially with new introductions together. , go with the flow, super cuddly velcro too without prissy priss. She meows whiney complaining when she doesnt like something like being picked up for "spa day" time. she can be a little drama queen lol.

I find both males and females just as interactive cuddly velcro. my boys just don't have the little drama queen attitude

members will surely chime in! hugs n head smooches team Nabi!

Your baby girl sounds like a princess Yodamom, lol.

Do any of your sphinxes just stare at you? I catch Nabi just staring at my face for long periods of time lol. Sometimes I am watching TV and think she is asleep and she is just lying next to me staring at me.

My girl Kiwi loves her cuddles and snuggles up to us in bed purring loudly for half of the night. , always on her own terms ! She also likes her *me* time though when she takes herself off and just likes a quiet snooze. In contrast to our boy Wilson who was constantly with us , exhibited F,O,M,O and would probably have loved to be carried around in a pappouse! He was more active too. As for staring , yes both of them do/did, stare at us. A lot. Couldn't help thinking of the lyrics to the song "Every Breath You Take"
