Mancat and Meezer Monday

Dragonheart: I love to sit next to the floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows in the family room, and look outside. There are so many interesting things to see, especially the birdies that come to eat at the birdfeeder. You can see these windows below - that photo was taken before our humans moved into our place, which is why there is no furniture. But it gives you a great view of the wonderful windows. You can also see our tiny Garten (yard) outside the windows.

Merlin: My points continue to darken, especially on my face, and I'm growing like a weed! Our humans can really see how much I'm growing since they can compare me to Dragonheart. I'm full of energy and love to play, play, play! I've heard our humans wondering if I'll calm down a little once I'm fixed. I don't understand them - I don't need to be fixed, I'm not broken! Humans are weird. I'm 5 months old now and have been in my Forever Home just over a month!

Many of you have commented on how quickly Dragonheart and I have become best friends. That is mostly due to the fact that we are Sphynx. Sphynx, as a rule, are very friendly, social cats. Typically, Sphynx prefer human companionship over anything else, but a fellow Sphynx is a close second, followed by other cats and then woofies. We Sphynx LOVE attention. The CFA Sphynx Breed Profile states:
The Sphynx are extremely inquisitive and love to be the center of attention. They perform silly antics for your entertainment and are sometimes downright clumsy... on purpose it seems. They make great show cats because of this ''look at me" attitude and they are easy for judges to handle. They prefer human attention but enjoy the company of dogs and other cats. They have an abundance of energy and mischief and are always with you, on you or showing off for you. "Love Mooch" is the perfect term for these amazing cats.
Dragonheart and I are very typical Sphynx in this respect. We love attention and love meeting new people. We are both very friendly and inquisitive. Dragonheart is also very easy-going. He accepts new things with a fairly laid-back attitude. So once he realized that I wasn't a threat and that I wasn't replacing him, we quickly bonded and became best friends.

Our Trixie must have been broken too cause she was fixed when we got her from the pound at 7 weeks.

We need to get her fixed again as she must be broken to be hissing at Pyewacket so often.

Daisy said...

I love looking out the windows too! Merlin, your eyes are a really amazing shade of blue.

Tigmut'hep said...

You certainly are growing a lot Merlin and it seems Sphynx are quite a lot like the Aby's I live with, in that they're people mad and love to cuddle with other cats! Honestly why can't they be normal like and an cuddle teddy bears? ;)

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Happy Mancat Monday to you two, Love Mooches!! Those windows are really great, DH. And, Merlin, we don't think you're broken either. Beans are weird sometimes...

It is wonderful to have lots of windows.We have them on the porch and we also like to watch the birds & squirrels that Mom feeds.
As you are so social,it's good that you have Merlin and your Mom & Dad :)

The Meezers said...

Merlin, you are becoming very meezerish! your points are coming in very nicely! Miles was not broken and he gotted fixed when he was 4 months old. I gotted fixed when I was 6 months old. just be careful and don't give them any reason to think you're broken

Junior said...

Dragonheart,

I would love having those big windows to sun in! There are too many buildings and trees around my window, so I don't get much sun.

Merlin,

You certainly are growing fast! And that is a great picture of you! It shows off your eyes so well!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

You guys are so cute together all the time. I do like your big window too.

Merlin, I do not think you are broken either but apparently humans don't understand the saying that it ain't broke, don't fix it...

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

You look like you are sitting out in the garden Dragonheart!

Eric and Flynn said...

Those are lovely big windows. It's like being in the outdoors while you are still indoors.We had to get fixed when we were about your age too Merlin. It sounds like most cats must break when they are young.

Scooby, Shaggy & Scout said...

Merlin you are growing into such a handsome young man cat!
Those windows are so wonderful! Just right for cats!

The Furry Fighter said...

i often wonder if Merlin's personality is more Sphynx or more Meezer? they sound similar though so i guess it is hard to tell.

Merlin - your points are divine! and i think you may calm down a little after you have been fixed - Castle did, but not that much.

Thank you for coming to our party as well guys - i loved having you there and sharing venison with you x

Sunny's Mommy said...

That's a great wall of windows you have in your humans' apartment. You'll never miss anything happening outside :-)

I've noticed Merlin looks like he's almost as big as Dragonheart in some photos. I'm wondering how much you weigh now, Merlin. You have grown a lot.

HRH Yao-Lin said...

my human is jealous of how quickly you two have bonded! you see, I have never really accepted baby mao, mainly because of his smell. That said, I do enjoy the odd snuggle, just not all of the time!

Scout said...

Merlin, your points are coming along very nicely!

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Oh Merlin your points are just handsome as can be!!! Thank you so much for the award a few days ago. The Woman was up near Quebec (but in the US) so she couldn't help us blog. We all missed seeing your sweet selves very much!

The Devil Dog said...

Lucky and I got fixed, too, and we weren't broken. I think I will let your brother explain it to you. That's what brothers are for. We are glad you Sphynx are social, but we like to think you would love each other even if you weren't.

Roxy & Lucky

TT said...

You both are certainlys cuddle bugs! Mommy Bean's calls me that cuz I loves to be with her's alot too.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

You both have the most beautiful eyes!

The Cat Realm said...

Emil seems to have some Sphinx genes hidden in him somewhere!
Center of attention... silly antics for human entertainment... abundance of energy and mischief...
And no, no, no - Emil did not calm down one little bit after he was "fixed".....

Puss-in-Boots said...

In other words, you two are attention seekers and show offs...lol!

Mitzi has a couple of months to go before she is repaired...um...fixed. Hopefully it may quieten her down, but somehow I doubt it...

Chairman Mao said...

I'm so thrilled you two are the bestest of furriends -- I knew you would be! And yur pickshures are adorabble, as always.

Momma and Daddy had me fixed last year and it calmed me down some. I'm still spazzy, but I was more spazzy before I gotted fixed!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!

Marilyn MonREOW said...

You two are simply precious! *smile* And I just knew you'd bond quickly and become the best of friends. Your snuggly pictures are heartwarming!

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!
