Hi, just wanted to quickly introduce myself and my handsome boy, Oogie. I've loved Sphynx for many years, I rescued a little girl named Princess about a year ago now, but at the time I wasn't in a position to keep a cat, so I found her a wonderful forever home. When I was able to purchase a home and finally give a cat a good home, I immediatly started looking for a Sphynx to call my own - I didn't want to buy a kitten from a breeder, as I knew there was a Sphynx out there that really needed the special love and care I could provide it. I got very very lucky and someone who knew I loved Sphynx refered someone to me that had my boy. He had a bad respitory infection, and the husband had just lost his job, they just couldn't afford the vet bills and upkeep on him any longer, so I quickly offered to take him in and give him a wonderful home. Oogie has only been with me a couple months, but I already feel as though he's always been in my life! He loves my dogs, and follows me around wherever I go in the house. He loves to sleep under the covers with me at night, and has been a big help to me. I have a chronic disease that causes extreme pain, Oogie seems to sense that, and when I'm having a bad way somehow he knows what hurts the worst and will lay on that part of my body to help me out - He's just an amazing cat! Now I'm searching for a 2nd rescue Sphynx to add to my family, but for now. Anyway, that's me and my charming gentleman of a cat!
