Week 9 Photos

You guessed it! Our awesome breeder Melissa keeps sending pics our way!

I've been looking at these pics all day. Even at work. I honestly think it's good for my health. Lowers my heart rate.

I mean look at this guy!! He's growing so much! My guess is he'll be a big one… look at that long snout. It's only been a week since the last photos!


THE BELLY.

Oh my goodness, that belly!! He's going to be a little chubbers. I love it.

I love his striking aqua eyes.

And his mysterious skin color (what is it? Lilac? Lilac point? Sepia?) is so handsome. I can just imagine the velvety feel of those wrinkles.

Even my non-sphynx-loving-coworkers couldn't say a bad thing about him. Possibly due to the fact I was cooing over him and possibly getting teary-eyed. Whatever works. DON'T SAY MY BABY IS UGLY I WONT BELIEVE YOU.

In other news, our official Gotcha Day has been scheduled for September 22! So we still have about 2 months to go. That's ok. More time to get our ducks on a row before Merlin and Friend come home. But…it's getting harder to wait!!

8 Weeks… and Growing

It's time for more Merlin pics!

He'll be 8 weeks old at the end of the month. Our breeder has been graciously providing us with more photos!

Look at that tummy!! We're guessing our lil' wizard is going to be a pretty big guy. He certainly seems to have an appetite.

Aw look at those eyes! And those EARS! It'll be fun to watch him (kind of) grow into them.

We can't believe how fast Merlin is growing, but every week we grow more ready to bring him home.

Stuff for Merlin: Sweater Edition!

It’s time to reveal my lists of cat sweaters I will choose from for Merlin. (I am in no way affiliated with the shops mentioned in this post). 

Sphynx Swag

So far my favorite store, due to their overwhelmingly awesome selection and cool sweater design. 


I’m especially in love with the maroon storm-patterned one (very wizard-esque) and of course I’ll need a plaid or two. The black and green or blue patterned shirt will have to wait until Merlin’s eye color sets in.

Sphynx Cat Wear 

Another fun shop, SCW has some good-quality, awesome basics.


I especially like the star turtleneck and the grey-and-colored ones (called “juicy fruit,” they come in 4 varieties).

Violet Cat Pet

An Etsy store based in Russia, what stands out to me about this shop is its amazing cat jumpsuit.


I mean, look at how fabulous those are!! Rain or shine, I could bring Merlin everywhere with me knowing he would be warm.

Seriously. So. Cute.
Posh Punk Sphynx

Last but not least, this shop boasts some pretty rockin’ designs, too. 


 Some of these designs are girly, but I love the darker star design and the Fairisle sweater.

In the end, I know I can’t go wrong. Merlin will be the best dressed gentleman out there!

We’ve picked our kitten!!!

Hi guys! FINALLY, the day has come; we got to pick out our little naked kitten last night!! 

There were two boys and two girls. All of them were so adorable, it was insanely tough to choose.

But eventually my husband and I narrowed it down to a boy, and then got to pick between a seal mink colored one or a lilac/chocolate one. Melissa (the awesome breeder) says it’s hard to tell colors with these “thermal” kittens, meaning that their color may/probably will change as they grow older. 

The decision basically just came down to me simply choosing, as neither Ian nor I truly care about color. 

Say Hello to mister Merlin, everyone!! 

OOO that face!! The wrinkles!!
Showing off all his best angles.

His take-home day (formally known as “gotcha day”) will be sometime in September, after he’s had plenty of time with his mom and siblings. He’s going to be insanely loved and spoiled. I’ve already started planning the sweaters we’ll buy him… stay tuned for that post next!
