Hi all,

Haven't posted for a while, we adopted Indi & Willow back in January and boy has it been a steep learning curve! The girls have settled in really well and every time I've needed the answer to a question I've found it here.
1. We now understand about bathing (or not)
2. That pumpkin is great for helping with runny poop (Willow has such a sensitive stomach).
3. That Indi licking my arm until it's sore is perfectly normal!
4. That play fighting is ok until the screaming starts then it's time to distract them (and use Clorexyderm for any scratches)
5. That getting a litter robot is ok because they poop so much (I was never going to be 'that person' lol)
6. Yes it's normal for them to climb all over you when you eat dinner (we put them in a playpen so we can eat in peace)

They are a constant source of fun and they love cuddling (even when it's really hot) and we are loving taking care of them so thank you so much for the help and advice you provide here.

Thank you @Yoda mom & @Catzzzmeow so Indi is the one with the points and blue eyes. I have no idea what colour these guys would be as we didn't get much information when we rehomed them but Willow is a greyish colour and Indi is more 'mink' coloured. Is that a recognised Sphynx colour, I have no idea?

The cutest thing about Indi is the way she sleeps like a little baby

Aww :)
On #4 -- I make my own ointment, which is antibacterial and the best thing for any kind of skin ailment.
This is the link to what it is -- and you will find narrow/broadleaf plantain everywhere.
(Just no tea tree oil, as it's not good for cats)
I use that on the cats, the horses, and of course -- myself. :)
The builders who did my barn doors, and who were each the recipient of a jar of it, actually came back to get some more, because it works. :)

They are so adorable. I love the way they cuddle together. When i first got my first kitties i never heard them speak about bonded pairs. It is such a heartwarming thing. I felt my two littermates (furry)and Paka (sphynx) were also a bonded threesome and that was proven by their reaction when we lost her. Your pictures warm my heart.

@Yoda mom Batman & Yoda are so cute, the more I learn about this breed the more Sphynx I want.

The attitude to these cats is quite mixed in the UK, some people are weirded out by them, some are very curious and ask lots of questions. It's fun answering their questions and showing them pictures, the reaction is usually 'Wow they're so cute'

@Luna28 , thank you... lol my mom's exact words when I got my sphynx and still today she comments" they are disgusting looking". :( she said cats should have fur. she has no idea what she is missing out on. I swear sphynx/nakids are cat, dog , monkey , baby all in one for life

@Yoda mom my son was a little unsure and called them 'the gremlins' initially but Willow sat on his lap and charmed him. Now he comes round and fusses them and takes pictures
