Oscar here. Remember how we had a 60 degree day followed by a snow storm? And we’re on the cusp of another snow storm? Well, if you’re anything like me, your body is rejecting this drastically changing weather. We wake up in the morning and it’s cold so you wear a sweater. Over the day, it warms up drastically so you shed said sweater. By night fall, it’s dropped precipitously. The ups and downs are way too much for this little kitty. BUT, and it’s a big but, through all this weather, at least I have my warm coat to protect me when it’s cold.
Now, imagine going through those ups and downs in climate looking like that guy over there? That ladies and gents is a hairless Sphynx and he has it worse than the rest of us. Because unlike me and the rest of the mammals of the animal kingdom, he doesn’t have a built in fur coat!!! This may be the first time you’ve ever seen a cat who looks like him. Though if that’s the case, it would mean you’ve never seen Austin Powers and Mr. Bigglesworth which would just make me so darn sad. Anyway, for those of you Sphynx newbies, that little guy over there pretty much sums up what they’re all about. Being hairless.
A word to the wise, if you have one of these little guys, always remember that they get cold differently than the rest of us. So be sure to keep them warm and cozy when its cold out!
Til’ next time,
