Hi everyone! I'm Mandy from Oklahoma City. My partner Clint & I are owned by two Sphynxes: Cupid & Opal. Cupid is will be turning six next month (September 27, '03) and Opal is 4 (April 27, '05). I wanted to get another Sphynx immediately, but was worried that as Cupid was so clingy, he wouldn't want to share. I finally decided to get one due to Cupid driving me nuts always wanting to play, be rubbed, etc. I couldn't have hoped for a better 'pal for him than Opal. They are both the loves of my lives. (And she does occupy him sometimes, but now I have TWO Sphynx always wanting to play, be rubbed, etc. ) I was first intrigued by the Sphynx breed due to Clint having allergies. Once I met Cupid, I fell in love. I love their unique personalities, but most of all how so very SWEET they are! They are perfect cats, IMO. Clint loves to tell people that he isn't a "cat person," he's a "Sphynx person." He makes fun of normal cats, which I tell him isn't nice(!) but he's just so biased and in-love with ours! I do have to say, I am more of a dog person, but after adopting Sphynxes into my life, that all changed. I still prefer dogs to cats, but Sphynxes above all else! :Laugh: This site has such cute smilies. I look forward to meeting other Sphynx-lovers, and of course, the Sphynxes that fill your hearts.
