Wrinkly Wednesday

Yet another blog post devoted to the Nekkids but I suppose it has to be done *sigh*. Veikko is here asleep under the duvet - Seppo's usual place but he decided it was his the other night.
But here he is less happy. He has just returned from ystävämme eläinlääkäri, separated from his crown jewels. The bonus for me was that he got fed extra pouches and I joined him in the feast. The operation went very well and Veikko was a very well-behaved patient.
Now, we have had a couple of questions about Veikko. He does seem to be more wrinkly than Seppo - Seppo is a little fatter! He is 3,7kg and will dwarf his cousin when he grows up.  On his pedigree, Veikko is 'red tabby/white' so it is possible he is a seal point, but sphynxie ears and noses tend to be more furry than other parts of their bodies so it could simply be that he shows more there. Äiti doesn't really know how to follow pedigrees and all the genetics.  He has little whiskers, which Seppo does not have but both have a furry tailio.
Seppo's tail is tabby striped and brown (and it is not dirty as he had a bath last week!). He also has furry hocks which apparently might be encouraged by the food he eats.  His thoughts on this are clear.

Both nekkis are simply gorgeous, but our Mommy really likes the "pinkness" of Veikko!

Too bad there isn't a day that starts with an "N" for Nekkid days, but it might be high time for a Sphynxie Saturday or Sunday...
(just thought we would throw that idea out there MOL!)

Happy Wednesday, sweet furriends!

I've also heard that younger Sphynx kitties tend to have more wrinkles, and a bit fewer as adults - it's like humans in reverse!

Sepolla ei ole viiksiä! :O
Kummallisia kissoja ovat kyllä he.

Oh, Veikko! After becoming the proud owner of sultanas, he'll be the best buddy for Seppo! ;)
The hairyness of these nakked ones depends on the heredity of the cat and age. As a mature cat, the hidding hairs may appear.. Veikko shall be a BIG BOY as a mature. I've seen his dad and grandad.. :)

That first picture made the Human SQUEE with delight! She never saw anything so adorable as a sleeping Sphynxie--well, except fr ME of course.

Veikko does not look at all pleased with losing his crown jewels, but looks very cute under the duvet. Maybe he will grow into his wrinkles.

Oh oh. We had no idea that he was seeing ystävänne eläinlääkäri so soon! He's a tough guy, we think. We're not sure if we like the development in Finland (N).

Flynn already said it : Veikko will surely grow into his wrinkles. Purrs
