Hello from the Nudie Mamas (aka Michelle and Jessica)! It is so nice to see so many of our friends here from Instagram--many of you know us as @SphynxNudiePatootie

We are a mother daughter team, and between the two of us, own four sphynx cats!

In the fall of 2013, we brought home our very first Sphynx kitten! Like so many of you, we were excited and wanted to make sure we were doing everything right for our baby whose breed was new to us. Right away, we recognized that our hairless baby was going to need clothes to help him through the cold Minnesota winter. Our first try was a sock and that didn't go so well. He fell over and walked sideways and plain old hated it. Next, Jessica looked through everything she could find online. I noticed that she agonized and worried over every purchase for fear that they wouldn't fit. So many times, I watched her sit and pick shirts out and walk away from her computer. When she did order, the fit was always off or the fabric was terrible. We even had shirts that came off and ended up having the neck stuck around the belly. We literally ended up with a bin of ill fitting shirts. When it came to ordering with confidence, we had none and that is why we started making our own.

Over the past year, we have listened to many Sphynx owners and breeders who were also frustrated with the clothes buying experience. Many Sphynx hate clothes, have skin sensitivities, have odd shapes, have very large shapes, or other unique needs. We have listened and have tweaked our patterns, our sizing, and are very selective with our fabrics. Our goal at Sphynx Nudie Patootie is to never let our friends have bins of shirts that are unsafe or unwearable. We will work with you from the sizing stage all the way through ensuring the fit and comfort of our shirts/fleece on your baby. We are happy to make fabric recommendations, alterations, or exchange any shirt purchased from us. We want you to shop with confidence and know that we care about how our clothing fits and the quality that goes into every design.

We invite you to check out our new website,www.sphynxnudiepatootie.com! On our site you can shop by size and filter by fabrics.

At any time, whether it is questions about sizing, fabrics, or you have a suggestion for us--please feel free to email us at SphynxNudiePatootie@gmail.com

Love,
Michelle and Jessica

Hi friends!
So glad to see you here in the lair. Since the very first prototype you both have created and sent, I've been in LOVE with your Sphynx clothes. The ultimate tailoring, genuine care you put into your product really shows. I've never had a better fitting sweater for my Sphynx girls. Your fast shipping and personalized touches really make my heart happy! The prices are so affordable so my wallet is happy as well. Warm kitties are snuggly kitties. Love your mother daughter team!
-love Sarah, Pierce, Royal and Gala!

Thank Michelle! My boys love playing in the garden. Even now when it's getting cold they want to play outside. No better toy then your brother is what my boys seems to think:).
Enjoy your weekend.

So glad to see another store front with sphynx clothes. Many of the newest sphynx owners don't know where to go for clothes that actually fit. Welcome to our family of friends!

Hey! Welcome to the 'Lair! So nice to see you here. I've been waiting for the USD/CAD conversion to be a little easier on the pocket book... and for Max to stop growing (ha). Looking forward to buying some of your lovely shirts.

Sorry, I'm still learning to navigate this and pressed post too soon! We had really warm weather so our kids got outside a little bit. We have ladybugs all over the screens and they spent a lot of time "playing" with them. Nothing better than some serious bug chasing! Michelle

Thank you, Susi! Truth be told, we have been lurkers here for a long time--particularly when one of ours was really sick. This is the first place we turned to and often refer new parents here when they have questions. The search feature just made it so fast and easy for us to find the answers to our questions and the information we found was always helpful. Now we have a little experience under our belts, but the core of everything we know--we learned here! Thank you again, Michelle

Oh, I hear you! We just had some of our Canadian sphynx friends here for a visit and my friend showed me how it translated into Canadian dollars--ouch! We had no idea that the conversion made it so expensive! We tried to off set it some with flat rate international shipping--but its still terrible for Canada. Even more painful when your baby is still growing and won't stay in a size for a long time. Our Rumple is six months, and he blew through all the small sizes as fast as we could make them for him. We aren't going anywhere, so if you ever have questions or need help in this department, let us know! Michelle

Aww, thanks for understanding. Max is just over a year and is still growing (every week it seems). Today I was petting him and really noticed his chest has been bulking out (the bone, not fat). Glad you're not going anywhere! In about 6 months he should be finished growing... right? LOL.

Pretty much! Ours stopped growing in length by a year, but kept filling out until 18 months or so! In fact, they seem to keep filling out lol!

LOL. Max is on a raw diet and is a self controlled eater, so I hope he doesn't fill out THAT way. ha ha ha.

Your sizing categories are cute, by the way!

That was just music to my ears! The Lair is wonderful for so many reasons, but helping sick sphynx and their worried humans is the BEST. Thanks for referring new kitty parents to us too.
Much love,
Susi
