I put a picture of the sphynx that I'm getting on my facebook profile picture and I pasted the reactions I got....

Camella:
dislike! dislike! dislike!

Mauro:
That cat looks like one of the following: He's going to take over the world. He's very very mad. He's an evil genius. He can speak both english and japanese. he smokes. and/or he's going potty as the pic was taken. hah

Jean:

Min

Kristyna:
Tanis that is not a cat, it looks like a gremlin! oh my god you should name it Gizmo! haha

Kyle:

Haha, I don't really mind.. I kinda think it's funny. I just don't understand how none of my friends see how adorable he is! My boyfriend has come the closest to being on board with "yeah... they kind of grow on you." Haha thank goodness there's a forum here with people who appreciate the sphynx!!

I sometimes refer to 5e as 'Cthitten', as he looks like a cat described by H.P. Lovecraft, only cuter:LOL:

Some reactions from FB on some of my photos: :LOL::LOL:

"WTF is that?"

"That thing doesn't even look real. Kinda looks like Falcor but even freakier."

"I'm pretty sure this is the face of God"

"Either that or a carpet covered alien from a bad sci-fi movie"

"Jesus, Brooke. You're turning into a crazy cat lady. It's not your time yet."

"What have I told you about posting pictures like this?"

"ummm, is that a cat?"

"cute in a weird, disgusting abnormal kind of way. But sure, we'll go with cute."

"at least he doesn't get dingleberries"

"I can feel their efforts at mind control from here"

"I don't think facebook allows these kinds of photos to be uploaded"

"hahaha, I see a tiny little ballsack"

I've received a lot of comments about Piglet on my Facebook page, too, but remarkably, most of them have been positive and complementary. :BigSmile:

I've had some funny comments about Zoe on fb ....but I tell ya she really helped get me through some very tough times this last little bit. So when a girl wrote a comment that "that is @#$*#^scary" I had to write her back to let her know that I wouldn't write that about her beloved family pet....{ I thought it was rude}:ThumbsDown:

When I showed the first pic of Harry that I received from the breeder to my sister she said I should get an exorcist. I think they're the most perfect creatures ever and it baffles me that other people don't see them that way!

:LOL: That's so funny!!!!

I get the "she's so ugly she's cute" a lot. I did ask my grandfather last week if he seriously knew that Sophie is NOT a chihuahua and he said he knows. I had to make sure!

I have a FB page for my business and I post pictures of happy customers (pets) I posted a picture of my Sphynx and this lady said "no offense Laura but that cat is just homely" and then another person sent me a picture of their cat and said "I had to send a picture to even it out". I am pretty laid back but I found those comments to be pretty rude. I would never tell anyone their pet was ugly. Also when I tell people I just adopted a hairless cat they usually say "aren't they ugly?" I want to say "you're right they are ugly I guess I shouldn't have one - they should all be homeless." Yeeeeeesh sometimes people just don't think before they speak!:Dizzy:

I told my buddy at school about my genius idea of acquiring one of these godly creatures, and he laughed at me, real loud. He was at his house, and he googled ugly cats on his computer, which brought up pictures of sphynxes from all the haters. This fed his rampant laughter. Oh well, i'm switching schools next year anyway. And i'm the only friend he's got. joke's on him! ha!

Ive posted this before so those of you that have heard it.......please ignore the repetition......
I get lots of wonderful and mean comments every weekend at the flea market and if people are really mean.....and they mean what they are saying.....I cant hold my tongue. Ive had a few people say to Nofuratu "You are so ugly!!!" and I respond "He thinks you are ugly!"
Another older couple approached him with disdain and the man asked me "How do you keep something so ugly!!??? and I said "I dont know, ask your wife!"


a lot of times people say he's ugly and then look over at me with a guilty face and say...sorry.....thats not nice to say about your baby......and i just smile...Im glad they realise they're being rude!

I makes me MAD:Angry:!!!! I would never call someones much loved pet ugly..It's RUDE and unkind.. Face book is the worst. I just tell people that I LOVE my cat very much and they are being rude. Most people say "sorry" they did not mean to be.

I know they are not "IT" for everyone, but BE NICE..Your momma would want you to......If you cant say anything nice, don't say anything at ALL....(see can you tell it makes me mad!!!:Angry:..lol..)

FB Comments:

"Is this real?"

"Your cat is so awesome!"

"Your cat looks ill"

"Addie just growled at that picture. "That's right, my dog knows what's up"

"Your cat creeps me out!"

"He looks like the grandson of Mr. Bigglesworth"

"A naked cat! I always wanted one of those!"

"He is soooo cool!"

"With a second view of this picture, that cat looks really ill. If a human looked like this, I would admit him to the hospital faster than you could blink." *Med school ex boyfriend who is allergic to cats. Go figure...*

"If this is cute, I'd hate to see what he looks like when he is NOT being cute!"

"He does look a bit disturbing...and I like the kitty"

"ummm... I'm pretty sure if I woke up with that thing next to me I would have a heart attack. It looks really mean. That's so strange. ha I think it could kick my a$$ or at least kill me with shooting flames out of its eyes or something."

"I'm gonna steal that f-----g cat"

"Jeeze...you might want to look into some different cat food. :)"

Mind you, these are from only two of the many pictures I have of him. People do change their tune when they meet him, of course, but until then, they either think he's the coolest thing on four legs or scary as all holy hell. I think he's just my sweet baby!



This was when he was a kitten sitting on his bath towel (yes, he has his own towels bought especially for him!). He now covers most of it when he sits on it like that. *weep* Sorry...mom moment...

I really like this photo of your kitty. He looks helpless and innocent....like he needs a hug.....who could think that he looks mean or ill? Nutbars!

I bring Gilby out and about with me on a leash most of the time in the summer, and I always get:

"OH MY GOD, YOUR CAT DOESN'T HAVE ANY HAIR!!"

...to which I respond, deadpan and completely serious:

"Oh, S*^%..wait....really? He had some a minute ago. That's not good."

I've also posted a couple pictures on facebook, and my favorite comment was "Woa, you're getting real good with photoshop. That's creepy." (I went to school for graphic design)

My favorite will always be the people that genuinely ask me why I've shaved my cat. I'm sure you can imagine the creative responses I come up with for that one.

When I have shown pictures of my sphynx to friends, they mostly react in the same way, by saying they look like gremlins, but once people actually see my sphynx in the flesh then they change there minds, and comment on what big personalities they have, and how adorable they are.
I have 3 sphynx and they are all my babies.

Hopefully will be getting some new additions to my family as one of my girls Micah is pregnant!:Smile:
