Frootbat Friday

In this photo you can really see my forehead wrinkles (aren't they cute?), my ear tufts and my nose fur. You can also easily tell that I lack whiskers. I have a couple of very tiny, short, curled whiskers on either side of my face, but that's it. I don't miss them. Many Sphynx have no whiskers at all, and we get around just fine. We (usually) don't try to enter spaces that are too narrow for us to fit in, and we (normally) don't get stuck in places that are too tight. I guess we have developed other methods of estimating the size of objects and other ways of navigating in the dark. I understand that whiskers are very important for other cats, but we Sphynx get along just fine without them!

Remembering Lost FriendsIn memory of all those who have gone to the Rainbow Bridge. Tomorrow, it will be a year since the one who came before me, Whiskers, went to the Rainbow Bridge. So my mom will be borrowing my blog to leave a special tribute for him. I will be giving her lots of purrs and cuddles tomorrow, because I know she'll be sad.

Sometimes I wished that Rosie wouldn't have such long whiskers (longer then all the others) because she tickles me with them when I sleep ! and then I wake up and have to sneeze !

Dragonheart, you have the cutest ears!!! Love your picture. While you were gone Mom went to cat show and saw some Cat's like you. She even got to hold one of the kittens. If you go here you can see the Costume Contest they had at the Cat show.

That is a very cute photo of you, Dragonheart. I like your forehead wrinkles! Pixie has no more whiskers left (they are brittle and all broke off), and mine are starting to break off now, too.

Oh Dragonheart you are so handsome! I didn't realize it hadn't been that long since Whiskers went to the bridge. We'll be thinking of your mom and we'll give Latte an extra snuggle for Whiskers.

That's a lovely portrait. I never noticed before that you had no whiskers Dragonheart. If you need some extra, I lose a few now and then...

You have cute wrinkles. Please give your mom hugs and purrs from us. We're having a rough "anniversary" at our house today, too. It's pretty sad.

Those wrinkles rock! Wonderful look on your face.

Thinking of your family and Whiskers.

That is a very handsome photo of you, Dragonheart! We are looking forward to reading your mom's tribute to Whiskers. Mommy sends her extra comfort to your mom, too. It's a hard time and she knows how much extra support can help! Sending special headbutts and purrs her way.
Purrs,
Mr. Chen & Ollie

I biggified the picture and saw your tiny whiskers, Dragonheart. I find it interesting that you have the bumps that the whiskers normally grow out of, but hardly any whiskers. Your forehead wrinkles are cute. I will be sure to come back tomorrow to read your Mom's tribute to Whiskers. This week must have been really rough on her, with Whiskers anniversary and all the rest.
