Since I was a small child, I have always hated cats. I think my distaste and fear was the result of my cousins cat, Mistletoe, and I never quite recovered. But since adding Nora and Dot to my life, I have become quite the crazy cat lady. I even get clucky when I see hairy cats, and I am not a fan of shedding animals.

Nora will be 8 months old on May 29th and Dotty will be 8 months old on June 11th. Nora has been with me for 3 months and Dot joined us a month later.

These girls totally own me and my life completely revolves around them. They are ridiculously spolied, and I have no need to meditate, because watching them play or snuggling them when they sleep makes me so happy and relaxed. They make me laugh on a daily basis (even when they're naughty... especially when they're being naughty).

I took them to the vet a couple of weeks ago, as I had several questions and a few things I wanted checked out. Turns our poor Nora had a fungal ear infection, which I'm pretty sure started within a few weeks of my getting her. She was never super affectionate and became less playful when Dot arrived, and I thought it was normal for her. But since the ear drops have ceased, she's a different kitty. Playful, naughty and comes to me for cuddles at least twice a day. Dotty, on the other hand, requires cuddles at least 5 times per day (proper cuddles, chest to chest), and is super gawky, silly, but just the most magificently beautiful little being I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Interestingly, in the midst of all this COVID-19 stuff, she has been diagnosed with feline coronavirus (FCoV), and I'm just hoping shes of the 99% that doesn't mutate into FIP.

I had thought about adding a third Sphynx, but the girls have developed a close bond, and I'm worried a new kitten might either be the third wheel, or Dot might prefer them to Nora, leaving poor Nora without a friend. Instead, I'm investigating adding a Chinese Crested to the family next year... You know, keep the hairless theme going (or the ugly pet theme, as my Grandmother lovingly says).

My lovely girls... Nora is the seal tabby mink, and Dotty is the white torbie.

@Ten , just to share from @Toa and Ross previous shared info. "
"My two boys do have the coronavirus. As the vet explained to me about 80% of all cats have the coronavirus. Most cats don't get sick of the virus. Some cats get a little sick (diahrrea) and with a very few cats (1-2%) the coronavirus transform into FIP.
When a cats has the coronavirus it will always carry this virus in his/her body."

years ago my boy went to an eye specialist, told me the same information.

hugs n head smooches! look forwards to lots of pics and tales!

Such cute girls! It's great to see they bonded so well.
As @Yoda mom mentioned most cats will have no issues with the coronavirus (that cat type of virus,) when they have it. Fingers crossed it'll be like this for your girls
