Meet Osiris


Jul 11, 2023

Hello everyone, wanted to introduce you to Osiris. I just picked him up 2 days ago. This is my first Sphinx and I’m glad to of found this group. I’ve learned a lot already from reading through the forum and excited to be part of this group.

He’s 12 weeks old and for the most part likes to snuggle up with me or my son in bed. But when he’s up and ready to play he is just a ball of energy and very very vocal lol.

If you have any tips or advice on caring for these adorable little babies I would love to hear them.

Congratulations, Osiris is a real beauty.This group is fantastic and has helped me so much over the years. Sphynx are quite a unique breed and often crave human company.Our house is dotted with lots of warm snuggle blankets and various soft beds (although he might well just prefer Your bed!)They can also be like little ninjas and I learnt very quickly not to leave open the washing machine/dishwasher doors make sure windows and doors were closed(or not accessible for them to get out unsupervised) etc. Lots of stimulating toys ( doesn't have to be expensive, My Wilson loved his nutmegs , he used to play fetch with them ) and my girl Kiwi loves scrunched up paper balls and her DaBird toy too That said , personally they have brought so much love and joy into my life over the years, I wish you all the best.

@Osiris1017 , happy adorable Osiris gotcha! so glad you joined this fun friendly bunch! glad you are finding the community helpful. we all refer to the info center and use the top right search box too.

never hesitate to ask questions, all paws are family!!
what is his fav toy? silliest habit?
look fowrard to lots of pics and tales!

kitty proof home for life, plants, cords, cat toys. watch opening doors and walking, they are lightening fast and always underfeet. I trained my crew to a meet n greet spot when I open doors, come home. they are cat dog monkey baby all in one for life!

They are heat seekers I always double check washers/dryers before turning on , and even have to put my sphynx in my bedroom if I use the stove top or oven.

if you get him neutered, remember to confirm in advance with vet's office NO Ketamine anesthesia (It can have a rebound effect on heart)

enjoy your baby Osiris!! we are here for you!
