    Hello!

    My name is Melissa and I am first time owner of a sphynx. My little girl is about a year old and I believe that she is torti colored. I have only had her for a week and I am enjoying her a lot. I am sure I will have a lot of questions about the breed along the way and I can't wait to hear about everyone's kitties.

    Welcome aboard, Melissa! What's your little girl's name? She's a cutie-pie. :Adore:

    Welcome to sphynx lair.
    She is cute but she does not look tortie to me.
    Does she have any red on her?

    She is so cute in her pink collar, she needs a real girly name like Pearl or Crystal or Penny?!

    Okay, so I have a few ideas now. My husband likes the name Jade. I like the names Scout and Penny (Penelope).

    Hi, welcome to the Lair! I like the name Jade--it suits her. I also like Calliope (Kuh-LIE-oh-pee)--I think she was a goddess or something. I just like the sound of it.

    I had a tortipoint siamese years ago and found an interesting name in the dictionary - Sangaree
    it meant wine with nutmeg (or something like that). She looks a little like Sangria, your little girl.

    very cute and petite

    I like the name Penny! I heard once that animals respond positively to names/nicknames that end in the sounds "ey" or "ie"
