- Because I have no eyelashes, and no eyebrow whiskers, I tend to get goopy eyes. The goop collects in the corners of my eyes. My humans (especially my mom) clean the goop if they are around, but when they aren't, when I shake my head, the goop goes flying everywhere! It sticks on the floor, the walls, the bedding, etc. If it's not wiped up when it's fresh, it really sticks to the walls or the hardwood floors, and it needs to be scraped off! It doesn't come off easily at all.
- When I'm very dirty and in need of a bath, the oil that accumulates on my skin tends to rub off on anything that I lay on for any length of time. So the sheets, bedding, and even my mom's pjs all end up with my oil all over them, and need to be washed frequently!
- My teeth also get stained brown from the oil my skin secretes. When I groom myself, some of the oil from my skin gets transferred to my teeth, and discolours them.
- Being crepuscular, like all cats, I am most active at dusk and at dawn. At those times, I run through the house like a crazy cat, attacking my toys or anything that moves (including human ankles, or feet that are under the covers), and generally acting wild. My humans tend to call me "crazy cat" or "psycho kitty" at these times.
- I have a very set routine in the morning. First, I wake up my dad with a gentle tap to his face. I am always very gentle, and just lightly tap him with my paw. If that doesn't wake him up, I breathe right in his face, and eventually that gets him up. While he uses the washroom, I sit at the top of the stairs, and meow for my breakfast. When he's done, we both go downstairs, and I am given my breakfast. I eat breakfast, then I do my crazy-cat routine described above. At this point, I usually curl back in bed next to my mom, but sometimes I amuse myself by running through the house and playing. When my mom gets up, I start meowing at her, and then I normally curl up in her lap while she eats breakfast. When she's done, I meow and meow, until she plays with me. We generally have a good playing session, and then I either go off and amuse myself, or else I curl up in her lap while she helps me with my blog, and then I usually stay there when she starts studying.
- I like to get up high. The higher, the better. Sadly, there are only a few places in the house where I am allowed to get up high. My mom doesn't have any photos of me up high, because the minute she grabs the camera when I am up high, I immediately jump down.
- I always like to be in the same room as my humans. If they are both at home, but in different rooms, I meow and meow. I want to be with both of them, so I don't like it when they aren't together! My meow is hard to ignore. As I've mentioned before, my meow sounds very much like that of a Siamese (which my mom says is due to my ancestry - my dam is a blue point Sphynx, and all pointed Sphynx have Siamese somewhere in their ancestry - it's how they introduced the pointed colours into the Sphynx breed).
