A celebration of the kitties (and their friends) of the CatBlogosphere in verse.

This darling Sphynx kitten is Marley when he was first adopted.
And this is Marley now. As you can see, he has retained his frootbat ears. He is 1 1/2 years old now, having been born on July 17, 2007. He came from a cattery named Barenakedkitties. I love that name. He is a tuxedo and has practically no fur at all. I don't think he even has whiskers. He is very curious, active and loving. An empty lap won't stay empty for long when Marley is around. He loves to play, especially with his beans or his brother Reggie. In warm weather, he will wake his Mom up for breakfast. In cold weather, he prefers to climb into bed with her and snuggle up to her under the covers. I wouldn't say he loves his baths, but he tolerates them very well. Sphynx have to be bathed or the oil that their skin exudes will irritate their skin and get dirt stuck to it. In kitties with fur, the oil keeps the fur healthy.
Marley the Sphynx loves to cuddle. He and his Mom make a nice huddle. 'Neath the covers he goes, Halfway down to her toes. They both keep warm in a loving cuddle.
