Most people don’t like Sphynx cats because of their unusual appearance, but this story about three lovely cats named Rosie, Poppy, and Ollie will make them think twice.
This is Rosie Kitty and Violeta Draseikaitė told Bored Panda about how their family adopted their first Sphynx cat 3 years ago, thanks to their daughter who was 9 years old at the time. Their daughter was volunteering at the local shelter and eventually, she wanted to have a pet of her own. After her mom told her to do research and to find a cat that would fit into their family, the girl made a list and her first choice was a Sphynx cat.
Even though they were hesitant at first, the family started looking for a new pet and after a while they met their first cat – Ollie. The mom says it was love at first sight.
“His big bug eyes melted my heart, and his jumbo ears put a smile on my face that I could not get rid of. I knew right away that he would join our family,” they told Bored Panda.
Later, a pink girl with two different colored eyes named Rosie joined their family. Ollie and Rosie fit in perfectly and they soon had their first litter of kittens. Since the family couldn’t take care of all the babies, they only kept one of them – Poppy.
They soon started an Instagram page to share the photos of their Sphynx family and share their love with the world.
“The main purpose was to show my daughters that even though their pets may not look like “traditional” pets, people could have positive reactions to them despite their different appearance.”
