Oh Dog! I am so excited! Today I am interviewing my first Sphynx cat. In case you don’t know, a Sphynx cat has no fur. They remind me of Yoda. Yogi is a female Sphynx that I met through her sister Hattie Angles Baker. She’s quite an awesome lady, so please put your paws together and help me welcome my friend Yogi!
Rumpy: Thanks so much for being my guest today Yogi. How about we start with how you came to live with your family?
Yogi: My mom rescued me from the Humane Society about 4 hours away, we were listed on Craigslist.
Rumpy: Wow! That’s scary! So who do you live with now?
Yogi: I live with Hattie, Tink, blind Mimsy, blind Finley, Avee, Milton, Boom Boom and Blueberry. I only have a mom, no dad. I have lived with all my family Tink, Hattie, Avee, blind Mimsy for 5 years, and blind Finley for one year since he was adopted.
Rumpy: Adoption- that’s one of my most favorite words! Now there’s something I’ve always wondered about Sphynx cats. How do you keep clean?
Yogi: Most of us require baths, but I do not. My mom never gives me a bath, because I do not need one, I keep myself really clean, and the grease that I get on my skin,I rub off on the towels and blankets that she covers me in.
Rumpy: You’re lucky. I hate baths! And what kind of food do you like to eat?
Yogi: I like to eat canned catfood, a little bit of canned tuna, and I eat Avoderm dry food.
Rumpy: I hear that’s good stuff! Now there’s one more question I ask all of my guests. If you was a dinosaur, what kind would you be?
Yogi: Tyrannosaurus rex
Rumpy: Whoa! You must be related to June Buggie! Well thanks again for being my guest today Yogi!
