#7 - 13 Reasons Bald is Beautiful - Why it is Good to be a Sphynx

  1. DragonheartNo fur = no shedding!

  2. No hairballs!

  3. I don't have to worry about my fur getting matted or otherwise messed up.

  4. Sphynx have a faster metabolism than other cats breeds, which means I can eat more food and stay slim!

  5. Because I don't have any fur, my humans let me sleep with them, snuggled under the covers.

  6. Weekly baths result in an extra serving of stinky goodness for being good while being bathed.

  7. Sunlight feels really good against bare skin.

  8. Humans always let me cuddle in their nice, warm laps.

  9. Since Sphynx are friendly and outgoing, we charm everyone who meets us in person.

  10. DragonheartLarge Sphynx ears make it easy to hear (useful for hearing the humans opening cans of stinky goodness or returning home after being away.)

  11. Thick paw pads allow Sphynx to walk very quietly, sneaking around (great for pouncing on unsuspecting prey.)

  12. My lack of fur shows off my muscular confirmation quite nicely, it's not hidden under fur!

    and most important of all:

  13. My dad, who is allergic to other cat breeds, can tolerate Sphynx, so because I'm a Sphynx, I get to live with the best humans in the world.

Connie said...

Dragonheart you are one lucky kitty to be so appreciated by your humans.
I think you forgot one...You never stand in the mirror and have to worry about a bad hair day!!

Hugs,
Connie

Sanni said...

Wonderful list introducing your Sphinx race, Dragonheart!

I can decide which of your 13 points I like most, but being allergic to some cat races, too, this is the most important fact for me.

Viel Spass beim Kuscheln =)

Dragonheart - we like your list. You are first Sphynx that we have ever met so it is good that you can help us learn about your breed.

Forty Paws said...

Blogger's being a pain today, isn't it.

Have a good trip this weekend, Dragonheart!

Pack me up and take me with you! Dragonheart (cool name by the way) you are one lucky cat. While your human pals freeze their tails off you get to hang out in a chalet and contemplate the beauty of your baldness. Life is certainly grand. ;-)

Such a gorgeous cat!!! And sounds like you guys are going to have fun in Switzerland! Happy TT to you both!

Cheysuli said...

You know Dragonheart that God made very few perfect heads so there aren't many bald guys. I suspect that's true of cats too...

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Well, we are jealous of the fast metabolism! And the big sneaky paws! But we think you might need a little work on the muscular part......
We have neighbors from Switzerland. they have really cool accents!

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

You're such a wonderful ambassador! And awfully cute indeed! I do hope next year maybe I can be your Valentine because I just think you're adorable!

George, Tipper, Max & Misty said...

All excellent reasons, and we especially like #2. We have a problem with that in our house!

Munchkin, Missy and Monte said...

We hadn't thought about no hairballs, lucky is all we can say. Hehehe.

Gina said...

HI Dragonheart! I hopped over from your mommy's blogsite & discovered you have your own T13 as well! Yeah, no bad hair day for you as what another commenter said!
You three enjoy your trip to Switzerland and have lots of fun! Oh,by the way,tell your mommy, I passed the canadian citizenship (written) test! =)

What a great list! You're a pury handsome Sphinx. I dont like the bath idea, but the treats sound fabulous! Enjoy your trip to Switzerland. I'm sure you'll continue to charm everyone you meet!

Daphne said...

Dragonheart: Not The Mama lets me & Chloe under the covers with hims, too!
I love it down there, tunneling around and finding a good nesty place.
The only thing is sometimes my ears get bent the wrong way by the covers, you know whats I mean?
Oh, and I wish you'd teach Auntie Spooker that No Hairballs trick!!!
This is a great TT!
Meow for now,
Daphne

Love it! He's a cute cat!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

I have Devon Rexes; not far removed from Sphynxes in a way (although they have fur). I so hear you... Although, I don't let the cats under the covers because they used to scratch me with their toenails. The fur never phased me.

Happy TT!

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

#13 is very very important. it's sad that allergic people can't always enjoy cuddling a kitty.

jdoriot said...

No hairballs is cool!!

Tara said...

Really great list! Best of all, more food! Tara

Nathalie said...
