Our second Sphynx baby will be coming home soon-He was born on July 7...He is a High white calico. He is so adorable-He reminds me of Linguini the character of the Ratatouille movie so we named him Linguini! :LOL::LOL:

He is 6 hours away so we will drive 6 hours to pick him up or who knows maybe the breeder meets us half way.

We are so excited!...I can't wait to have him here with us!

He's adorable - but are you sure it's a he? Or that he's a calico? Because only females can express the colour calico. There are very rare instances of male calicos being born but they're always sterile. So it's really a female, or really isn't a calico, or really is a very very rare calico male.

What a sweetie!:Smile:
I am with the others on only females being calico, but I do think he is a he because he does not look calico to me he seems to have the white with one other darker color? A calico has to be at least 3 colors. I also love the name you picked:ThumbsUp:

Thank you so much everyone!:BigSmile::ThumbsUp:....The breeder said he's a calico but I guess he is just white with a few spots! He is so adorable!.....

Do you think the spots will get darker?
Because Mickey was like a beige color when we got him and now he is white with a lot of grey/blue everywhere! Hopefully Linguini stays mostly white! :)

Your Mickey might be something they call a thermal in which a light colored Sphynx developes its color and markings as he ages and/or with the seasons.

I don't know much about it myself, but there are members who could explain better.

Is Linguini from the same breeder? If he is then he might develop spots of color too.
