Dragonheart: I really like grooming Merlin, especially his ears! I'm 100% back to normal after my health scare a week and a half ago, and it's great having a little brother to curl up with and play with!
Merlin: Dragonheart is lots of fun to curl up with and play with. He's a great wrestler! He's a little too obsessed with grooming me, though, especially my ears. I guess he thinks I don't do a good enough job grooming myself, and our humans don't do a good job bathing me and cleaning my ears.
In regards to our differences post that we made on Thursday, most of the differences are due to personality, and not due to age. Merlin squirms a lot more than Dragonheart did at Merlin's age. Right from the start, Dragonheart never squirmed when being bathed, having his nails trimmed, or having his ears cleaned, unless it started taking too long. He's always been a "good boy" at the vet, sitting quietly and letting the vet do whatever is necessary (except when having his temperature taken - he's squirmed at that). Merlin, on the other hand, is always squirming. Trimming his claws, cleaning his ears, and giving him a bath is a lot more challenging, because he won't stay still and is always moving!
As for the fact that we've become such good friends so quickly, part of it is due to the fact that we are Sphynx. Sphynx are very friendly, social cats, and we love attention! Generally, Sphynx prefer human companionship - we love being around people and meeting new people. When it is time to relax, our favourite place to curl up is in a human lap. When a human isn't available, however, another Sphynx is the next best thing! We are both very friendly cats, so we've become fast friends and inseparable.
You are two superduper mancats! What preshus pickshures of you. And it is sooooo wunnerful to have a bruther. I love Marilyn and Dorydoo, but I love Brainball the absolute bestest. We rassle and cuddle and play -- and he likes to groom me, too!
It's great to have a wunnerful sibling. I'm so happy for you two bruthers!

I am so glad you both become the best brother, best buddy~~~
That is wonderful~!
I thinks squirmed at bath is good enough, I am screaming from the beginning to the end~~ So, Merlin is great, hahaha~~
Gosh, you two look so cosy together! Nice to see brothers getting on so well. Bath - I would do more than squirm!
They really are very cute together ! It's just like Arthur and Rosie. Arthur being a male is much more opener for cat relationships then the females, they are honnestly awful between themselves ! Only Kim never hisses or does anything agressif not with cats and not with humans.
(my cats & funny stories)
How cute you are snuggled in your bed together. It's nice to have a brother to wash your ears. We do that for each other, but Eric sometimes gets carried away and holds me down. Sometimes I think he will wash them right off.
About the tap water, we have soft water in SW England and it is good to drink.
My dearest brother Dragonheart! It warms my old kitty heart to see you so cuddly with your little Merlin! You are better again and REALLY warms my heart.
I hope you can tell me about the meezer rescue group you got my blanket pad from. I am on a special mission and need to know.
I also wanted to let you know that your blogsite is almost impossible for me to open most days and I often have to try 5 or 6 times to get in....just do not think I do not try to visit. I love you and you are always in my thoughts...Peach
You'z kinda like furless Aby's we'z very fond of human attention and fuss, but when we can't get that or just don't feel like it another Aby makes the bestest snuggle buddy! Oh and Merlin I'z totally understand what it's like to have your ears obsessively cleaned... ;) Has he tried cleaning between your toe pads yet? That's even more tortuous to put up with, cause it tickles soooo much! :)
Mancats know how to show brotherly love :)
Now that 85% of our snow is gone and we had a week and a half of warm weather, we can expect up to 20cm snow! Winter is back :)
We love these pictures!
Dragonheart is a wonderful big brother. We had a cornish boykitty named Cubby for a while but he hated us :-( he wanted to be boss of us and he was just a little shrimp and he was mean. We had to give himm away even though mommie loved him.
You and Merlin make a wonderful team and we like that a lot! Even our daddie came over to look at these pictures and he thinks you two are cool guys!
Love, headbutts and purrs,
Princess and I are a lot like you. Very well behaved and no squirming :-) even now when we get our subq's. Prinnie is very still and I get a little squirmy if mom is taking too long.
Brotherly love is a wonderful thing, and it's good to have different personalities - it doesn't get too boring that way!
You two are sooooooo sweet!!!
It's so great that both of you became such fast and good friends so quickly. I'm still adapting to my 4 other brothers and sisters...and it's been 2 1/2 years.
is Merlin putting stinky goodness or something in his ears that's good to eat?
You two look very cozy there, its good to have a diversion when Mom and Dad are busy!
Best friends forever.... that is the best!
We think it is great that you two are such good friends. We are not, in fact Jack is really mad at Dante right now. Mommy wishes we would get along better so maybe we will try...
Merlin, kittens have been known to be a bit spotty when it comes to personal hygiene. It takes them awhile to learn to do a thorough job. We think Dragonheart is cleaning your ears and showing he loves you at the same time.
Dragonheart, you and Merlin look so adorable snuggled together! Grooming ears must be an older sibling thing . . . my sister Ivy is forever pinning me down to groom my ears for me!
I'm glad you guys have each other to play with and stay warm in the winter!
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe
You look like you have very clean ears Merlin. Dragonheart is doing a very good job!
That is so cool that you learned to get along so quickly! Meowm thinks it is sweet that Dragonheart likes to clean Merlins ears so much.
Those pictures made my Mum AND me gasp and go SQUEEEEEE! You guys are just adorable and I love how you curl up together.
Dragonheart is being a very good big brother by grooming your ears for you, even if he is obsessed with it : )
Dragonheart and Merlin, I am so glad you two have become fast friends.
Maggie likes to groom Huggy Bear's face. She has started grooming my face also. My mom can't stop saying "Awwww" when she looks at you and Merlin.
Ma loves looking at the two of you all cuddled together. She keeps wishing that Guy and I would do that. Yeah right. Ma tells me to be nice so I go over to Guy and give him the bitey. I will never be nice to that stinky boy. Keep dreaming.
Lovely to have a brother-friend for company.
Dragonheart & Merlin, you are perfect role models for brothers everywhere!
Thank you for helping me wish my beansister a happy birthday!
DH you certainlys are very sweets to your brother Merlin. Merlin I thinks you are rights, DH thinks you don'ts clean your ears enough.
Well, maybe Merlin won't be so squirmy after he gets used to being bathed and clipped. I don't like it, but I don't need to have a bath as often as a Sphynx does.
You two look very cute together!
Sydney water tastes pretty bad. The vet says I have to drink more and the only way SS can entice me to drink is by collecting rainwater because I don't like filtered water either. I am so glad that I am not the only cat who dislikes tap water.
Awww! You guys look so cute. Is that a sleeping bag? It looks super warm and comfy!
We're glad that you got the milk jug rings. Those are EG's favorite thing ever. Except he can only play with them when Momma can watch him and make sure he doesn't chomp them. hee hee
D, when Merlin grows up do you think you'll both fit in the bag?
We are so happy that you two have become such close and wonderful friends!!! And you both are so adorable! Not times two but square two!
And thank you so much for coming to Miss Peach's tea party on board the cruise sip. It was fun having you there and we hope you enjoyed it!
Happy Mancat Monday, Dragonheart and Merlin! You are such a precious and snuggly brother duo. I just love the pictures of you two cuddling!
Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.
You sure are enjoyin havin a brother, Dragonheart! We are so happy for you...
It is wonderful that you are enjoying each other so mucg. Lucky and I are very glad for you. You are also extremely cute in the photos.
Awe Merlin, maybe it's just Dragonheart's way of showing affection.
Oh you guys are too cute together!! We're glad you're fast friends and bruthers now!!
Mr. Chen & Ollie
Nice photos - we like how you two will snuggle up together in the sleeping bag. You're very cute mancats,
Gypsy & Tasha
Everyone sounds happy at your house. You have a good brother.
That's a great bed you have there. It looks so furry and warm :-)
It sounds like your Mom and Dad are going to have their hands full taking care of Merlin's grooming needs, since it doesn't appear he'll outgrow his squirminess.
I can understand gitting sqirmy win yer tempercher gits taken. It's imberrussing and it kinda gives my urjes.
