Xanthus (meaning Golden-haired) is a Cornish Rex Sphinx. We call him Xan Xan. We got him at the SPCA when he was 18 months old. He had just come out of quarantine a few minutes earlier. He was brought in by the breeder as she was moving and couldn't take him. Xan Xan is our love, our darling & little bully at times.
Definitely a lap cat, bed cat, and let's play ball or grab your pants or both. He plays soccer, opposable thumbs! He loves Jimbo's Hearty Beef and will stand by his glass bowl when it is time to be fed. When it is time to eat he is helping to get the bowl out of the cupboard in the morning & Jimbo's out of the fridge.
This picture is a favourite of mine. I believe he thinks he is a joey; always trying to get into fleece jackets, robes, well really whatever you're wearing. He's insistent, tapping you & nudging. Here I am wearing a blouse with a green overtop. With the light shining through I could resist taking a photo of him sleeping, no filters or effects. Just Xan Xan & Love.
