Tuxie Tuesday: Cozy

Dragonheart here!  Merlin has been spending most of the time posting, but it's Tuxie Tuesday, so now it's my turn!



I like to curl up under the warm wool afghan that my mom crocheted!  It is very nice and very warm. Our mom has an Etsy shop, where she sells some of her crochet to pay for our vet bills!


Do you see the spots on my skin?  Those are age spots.  According to our veterinarian, most cats will have them as they get older.  You just can't see them on furry cats because of all the fur!  Since we Sphynx only have a bit of fur on our faces and our ears (and sometimes our tails), you can see the age spots on our skin.  Of course, some cats will have more age spots than others, and they will be more or less visible, depending on their colour.  I'm 9 years old (I'll be ten in July), and I'm a black and white tuxedo.  I have quite a few dark, visible age spots.  Merlin is 8 years old (he'll be 9 in September if he makes it until then), is seal lynx point and white in colouration, and he only has a few, light-coloured age spots.  Devi is 5 (she'll be 6 in April) and she doesn't have any age spots yet.

You look very cosy in your blanket ! We didn't know that cats had age spots, like humans on their hands. Purrs

What a nice blanket. Mom Paula is fussing about those "age spots" too!

You look very cosy under your blanket, Dragonheart.

We didn't know that about age spots. Now Marcus wants Jan to look at us cats under a magnifying glass to see if we have any.

We bet that blanket keeps you really warm, Dragonheart. We never knew us cats could get age spots.

We think they look like beauty marks!

That's an interesting fact. We wonder if Ellie and Allie have them under their furs since they are 13.

Whoa! I hope I don’t have those age spots. I’m almost 11.

You look adorable even with age spots. I love your Mom's crochet work- she is a lot better than I am. I will check out her Etsy shop.

We didn't know that age spots were so common. We know about lintigo spots on cats lips/gums/faces, but we didn't realize similar spots developed elsewhere on cats!
