Hello! It’s about time I finally joined!

I’ve had cats all my life but just got my first naked baby, Cream, 2 years ago. While my vet is wonderful and knowledgeable, I live in a very small town and their knowledge of Sphynx is limited. I’ve been visiting Sphynx Lair for all my questions and decided it’s time to join!
We recently moved and added another naked baby to the household, little Appa, which has been stressful on Cream. Not to mention her wheel broke (OneFastCat is out of the part we need : () and her heat lamp is still in a box somewhere (it’s my mission to find it today)! I’ve noticed her skin has changed, from being soft and fuzzy to having patches of both dry and oily, with rough fuzz. She’s also developed these little spots, maybe clogged pores or pigmentation? I’m hoping someone has experience with this!

I added some pics of the family, as well as some close ups of Creams spots fresh out of the bath.

Thank you all for your knowledge!!

Welcome to Sphynxlair. Yes it looks like pigmentation changes...just a heads up your new baby might get even more spots...many find the darker babies have even more pigmentation changes. Our dark girl definitely has. BTW...your duo is gorgeous.

That is good to know! I was wondering if they were something like cat freckles, but her skin is going through some changes from the stress so I wasn’t sure. Thanks!

It could also be seasonal, but I have one that's pointed like that like that and she developed darker areas as she got older. It's normal :)

My girl has definitely gotten a lot darker over the last 6 years.
