We picked up our Sphynx kitten, Dragonheart, from the breeder today. Dragonheart is a Sphynx, a hairless breed of cat. I posted more about the breed here.
The breeder lives up near Frankfurt, so we drove from Munich to Frankfurt yesterday afternoon, spent the evening in a hotel, and then picked up Dragonheart this morning at the breeder's place. She provided us with some toys, food and litter for him, as well as his vaccination and ID chip papers. Once we have him neutered, we'll send her proof of the neutering, and we'll receive his pedigree.
Dragonheart slept through most of the drive back to Munich, and was quiet throughout the entire trip. Once we arrived at our place, I put him down in the room that will be "his" and that he'll be confined to for the first few days (it's our guest room/office room, and is the largest of the three bedrooms in our place). At first he was meowing quite sadly, and running around, probably looking for his older brother and sister to play with, but after about an hour he settled down. He played with us for a bit, and let us pet and cuddle him, and now he's napping. He's used the litter box once, and we have food and water out for him, so I'm sure he'll take some of that when he's ready.
Dragonheart is the name the breeder gave him - she names her litters according to themes, and this litter was "fantasy" so we have Dragonheart, and his brother was Merlin. We'll probably end up calling him Drake or Drago. (For more pictures of Drake from today, click on the small photo below.)
