Photo Hunters: Tiny

Tiny

In honour of my first birthday, which was on Wednesday (you can see the gifts I received here) I bring you some photos of me as a tiny kitten! In the first photo, you can tell that I'm very, very young and tiny, because my eyes are still blue! All kittens are born with blue eyes, and their true eye colour only develops later - in my case, to green! Kitten photos courtesy of my breeder, Hair'N'Skin. And yes, Sphynx kittens have lots and lots of wrinkles. We tend to become less wrinkled as we grow out of kittenhood, but wrinkled skin is desirable in adults (especially in show and breeding cats), particularly around the muzzle, between the ears, and around the shoulders.

I have something nice to say - you look adorable in those pictures (and now you're all grown up and are quite handsome)!

Thanks for the information on your breed; it's interesting.

jmb said...

I didn't realize you were only one year old Dragonheart. You have grown from that tiny kitten into a very handsome cat.

Kimo & Sabi said...

What a cutie patootie!

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

You were just the most adorable little bag of wrinkles I have efurrrrr seen! Mommy calls me a bag of cat fur because I have such flabbies now that I am so old:) Daddy said I need a tummy tuck....the nerve!!!
If any one leaves a not so nice comment for you here...I will bunny kick them into the next century!
Your older sister has spoken!

Never saw that breed before but you sure are adorable. And thanks for telling us about your breed. Interesting. Have a great weekend, and thanks for sharing with us.

So beautiful baby~!
You are such a mancat now, Dragonheart~!

meeyauw said...

OMG how beautiful and adorable. Little Dragonheart looks so tired. When I read about his birthday earlier this week, I was wondering about his baby photos. Thank you for sharing!

Lynn said...

I learned something, so it's originally blue. Thanks for walking me through about Sphynx kittens. And belated happy birthday to you!

julie said...

Dragonheart, I was surprised,you looked different. But you are adorable.

have a great weekend with your humans! :)

Daisy said...

Dragonheart, I think you were the most adorable kitten. With that wrinkly face you have such a sweet little worried look. I think I am like you in that I had to stay with my breeder until I was 12 weeks old. My Mommie could hardly wait to get me though.

Hootin'Anni said...

Awwwwwwwwwwww, how adorable!! You're too sweet. I love the fact that you are letting us in on your celebration too.

Katya said...

Ah, you were a cute tiny kitten! I have a friend who has a kittie just like you!!!! Happy Birthday!

Surfergirl said...

Heart of Rachel said...

Belated Happy Birthday Dragonheart! What a lovely coincidence. You and my son share the same birthday. My son, Yohan turned 4 on July 18. :)

I think you are very special and beautiful. You must have been a tiny one but I bet you gave so much joy to everyone around you.

Monty Q. Kat said...

Aw, look at you! What a cutie!

Gattina said...

What a sweet baby you were !! I love your wrinkles it's a pity that they are gone ! You have such a cute little face. Time goes by so fast and Rosie too becomes an "old" cat !

Barbara H. said...

I love that first picture especially!

Liz said...

Oh, Dragonheart, you look so sad! Happy birthday for last wednesday.

Wrinkles are desirable in adults of your breed? I should have been born a Sphinx!

Amy in NY said...

Your irresistible! Hope I can meet a kitty like you someday.

Chen said...

crazy working mom said...

Dragonheart you have grown so beautifully...but you were a beautiful tiny kitten! :)

Happy belated bd, DH... I also think you have grown to be quite the handsome one, and those are terrific baby pics!

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

You look so cute and very wrinkly as a kitten!!

I also used myself as a kitten for da photo hunt, hehe!

~Marie

PS. For some strange reason, I couldn't add myself to your linky list today!

karen said...

You were a simply adorable kitten, no wonder your Mom fell in love.

April said...

Very tiny, cute and wrinkley! That is nice that the breeder had pictures for you.

tegdirb92 said...

what great shots for TINY!! Look at those tiny ears!

Smeagol & Strider (Mystery & Gizmo too!) said...

You were such a cute tiny kitten and now you're a handsome mancat!

We got to visit with Petey, the Sphynx who lives with our v-e-t the other day! ('Course that means we had to go to the v-e-t, just a check up visit, though.) Mom and Dad were pettin' him and talkin' to him too (they woulda brought him home if they could)!

Honey P. Sunshine said...

you had such a sad little face, mommie would have kissed you all over

Forty Paws said...

Awwww, what a purrecious bebee!!! You look like a human baby! All wrinkly, but not pink of course...

Luf, Us

Cheysuli said...

I can't believe you were that tiny!

Dragonheart, actually you have been in the running several times. Remember, it doesn't have to be a FUNNY comment, just intriguing.. perhaps you need to be thought provoking?

HRH Yao-Lin said...

Oh Dragonheart, you were sooo beautiful!!! I always feel a bit sad when you remind people not to say anything mean - I can't think why anyone would be so awful as to say one thing negative about you. You may look different but you are BEAUTIFUL and my human is completely in love with your breed since visiting your blog! I won't allow her to swap me for a spynx, however, so she can stop right there! xx

Leslie said...

Oh my goodness - what a cute little face!

Happy birthday to you, Dragonheart!

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Heather said...

Linda said...

How could someone not have something nice to say? I think you were just the cutest little thing ever and I love the wrinkles all over you!

I didn't know that about the blue eyes, which are lovely, but green is my favorite color so your eyes now are even prettier!

Linda said...

Well Now Dragonheart, the old sarge has got to tell your comment was very informative, yep, this is the very first time I was trained by a cat...........

LHK said...

Dragonheart, you were so little!
Almost too little for your name. But, what a handsome mancat you are now. You look like you need a good snuggle in your baby pics. I bet that is why you got such good beans to spoil you.

Miz said...

You were such an adorable baby! Not that you haven't grown into a handsome mancat. Nice photos, thanks for sharing.

Lauren@Baseballs&Bows said...

What a cute baby you were! Your eyes we are very pretty blue. Of course, you are still quite handsome!

Morgen said...

Ooooh, Dragonheart, we've never seen these kitten photos of you!!!
What a cutie patootie!
Just want to snuggle with you!
Jazper says Big Man Cats like to snuggle, too, so that's okay to say to you!
Oh, and he says if anyone says anything not nice about you, he'll claw their eyes out.

Eric T said...

I love the first photo, very nice indeed :)

Tyler said...

Dragnheart, thank you for tellig me how fun your Whirly-bird was and posting the info on how to buy one. Mr. Blue Shorts brought it to us today and we've never been so tired. We all, except for my 17 year old sis, Kali, played and played. When Jake first caught the birdie he ran and hid with it in his house. He didn't want to share it again. Mom had to pry it from his claws and teeth. Thanks for telling us about it!
