The name will do,e to you! Keep writing them down :)
I like Oacar , perhaps a gargoyle name like Dedo- he is the cutest friendly gargoyle ,
Batman, perhaps a name for bald or naked in a foreign language ?

@Bustamante01 hi there, welcoming you again. Your kitten is so adorable. I just love that photo the way he's laying there like that. :)

Whatever food you decide to feed him, just switch him slowly. I found that I always had to switch foods so slowly that it took months to convert over to a new one. Otherwise, their stomachs would really act up. You'll have to be the judge of that by observing the litter box.

It's going to be a difficult time waiting to bring him home, but do lots of shopping now to get ready for Gotcha Day and that will keep you busy. Check out my favorite sphynx toy list:

Hello and welcome. OMG, your naked is gorgeous. So so so so cute. You must be so excited.

For food -- as best as you can afford, wet grain free. But keep him on the same food as the breeder for a few weeks and transition slowly.

For cat trees -- these guys are climbers. They love to climb high, so definitely a towering cat tree would be great. Carpet covered tends to be better for gripping than that softer fabric type covering.

Some great links above. Let us know if you have any other specific questions!

Congrats!

Welcome to sphynxlair, good to have you.
Handsome little Gentleman, he is.
Big ears. Reminds me of another member's baby
when she got him. So cute. His name is Nipsey.
He came from another lady here. Enjoy the site.
It's the greatest.
