Smile Introducing Baci

Hi members!

So as fate would have it......we told the rescue where we adopted Twiggy that we were looking to adopt another sphynx, preferably a kitten. Even though that rescue specializes in Exotic cats, they had NEVER seen a sphynx. 2 days after adopting Twiggy just last week we get a call that they have another Sphynx.
He's not a kitten, he's around 2. We are still in 'introduction' phase and it's going reasonably well. Baci loves us, and is sloooooowly warming up to Twiggy.

So anywho - Introducing Baci!

Wow, he is stunning Marko!! I LOVE his color and his eyes. Twiggy is pretty, but Baci is a real looker

I hope he fits well with Twiggy! What a beautiful little family you have, once again

Another beautiful (handsome?) sphynx. I hope Baci & Twiggy continue to bond and there will be cat harmony and peace in your home. They have the most amazing eyes..they look like they have old souls! I imagine they feel like suede.

What a handsome little guy! Does he like the sunbeam as much as Twiggy? If so, it's a shared interest that I'm sure will lead to a fast friendship.

Love his front paws--they look like little hands!

Congratulations to you and Carmy on your latest addition.

Baci is indeed a very handsome boy!

Glad to hear the introductions are going well! Sometimes it takes time but I'm sure it will work out fine.

Is Baci a lot bigger than Twiggy or does he just look big in the pics?

Nice color, in the sun he looks plum color with a black face. Do they have even better hearing than other cats with smaller ears ??

Thanks so much for all the comments everyone

I'd say baci is 20% -25% bigger than twiggy. and yup they both feel like hot suede - it's the coolest feeling ever!

I'm HAPPY to report that both Twiggy and Baci seem to be making the first strides toward friendship. Both yesterday and today they shared the same window space. And today while I was gone Carmy said she saw Baci give Twiggy a couple of of licks on her back and vice versa.

It's fun watching this all happen
