Hello! I'm new to the site and also new sphynx mom! I've always wanted a cat, but have always had very bad cat allergies until I found this breed. One of my good friends has two full grown sphynx males - and I just absolutely adored them and only had mild symptoms at most! I was so excited. I did my research for the most part of last year and looked/waited months before I found the right breeder with the qualifications I was looking for. Fast forward to now, I have my cute nakie boy! My fiance and I work 8 hours from M-F, mostly in the office (sometimes from home, but not often), and our kitty is the only pet we have currently. I know that the breed typically does not handle long periods of time alone, but at the moment we cannot afford to get a second one - so I was wondering if there were any tips from the single sphynx owners out there that would help ease this process? At the moment, he is confined to a single room and has access to his litter, food, water, toys, cat tree, scratching post, etc. Thanks so much!
