Oh, he is handsome! And I see he already loves the shelves!

What do Twiggy and Nuda think of Bambino?

So funny you said (and shows what an awesome listener you are )

Seems Nuda and Bambino are slowly becoming friends - playing, chasing, even some licking.

Twiggy will accept a few licks from Bambino, and lately a few more from Nuda... but overall she's a hisser with no teeth.

Stay tuned

Just curious have you ever used the Feliway Diffuser before.
The diffuser contains pheromones.

Very pleasant looking new addition to the family. Marko.

Glad to see he's making use of the handy work you did at Christmas time.

We'll be watching for his new name.

Winston's suggestion of a Feliway Difuser might be worth while if you haven't tried it.........we've used it and found it quite handy. If you get it from a vet it's a stronger solution than those in the pet food stores.


Love that chin.

I have to say I've never found Feliway super effective....but slowly but surely things are calming down and every day Nuda is friendlier....with.... YODA.

The new name is Yoda!

Twiggy and Yoda have exchanged licks and smells....but the bigger friendship seems to be developing between the 2 newest and youngest cats.

I'll keep ya tuned in tho - thx!!

Awwwwwwwwwwwww, man! He's absolutely adorable, Marko! And I love the name, too. Post up some more pics when you get the chance, if you don't mind.

Wishing you the very best with the new family member, brother!

So dignified! He looks like a real gentleman. Are sphynxes as laid back and dignified as they look?

Good question Hazel! I think they are the coolest looking kitty and if I had my choice and if we were to get another one, I would love to adopt a sphynx.

Awesome photos Marko. Yoda is truly beautiful.

thx so much for the comments/compliments!
To answer the question though on the laid back.....and ease of care aspect-
Sphynxes are Very Demanding cats, very vocal throughout life, crazy for food. Need weekly baths due to grease-buildup...and ear cleanings (they get filthy) often seeking extra heat.... The SPCA usually won't adopt them out to the public because they are always getting returned 1-2 weeks later.....

But Cute....so cute. Here's 3 new (smartphone) pics... we can see the progress!

It looks like Yoda is even bringing the girls closer. Close enough to share a window hammock, anyway. Such nice shots of them all together!

Hi there Marko:

Impressive looking photos of the crew......... it would appear that they are starting to get along better now as a threesome than just the 2 girls.

It took a guy to straighten them out .......LOL
