“This cat has more personality and sass than any animal I have ever met. We are inseparable. We are best friends.
Loki came into my life shortly after I moved to Syracuse, NY with my boyfriend Brent, who was working on completing a graduate program at the time. We are both from Minnesota and moved to New York together. I had always wanted a hairless cat but never thought it was a realistic possibility since the breed is so rare and can be wildly expensive. Brent, unfortunately, is also allergic to cats so I ruled out the idea of owning a cat for some time until I found myself feeling a little depressed from the move to Syracuse and decided I wanted a pet. I started researching hypoallergenic cat breeds and poring over Craigslist for any possible leads on pets. I searched for Bengal cats, Sphynx cats, anything I could find that could potentially coexist with allergies. I looked for about 3 months before I came across Loki’s ad on craigslist and the rest is basically history. Brent and I adopted Loki the day before Halloween in 2014 and have happily accepted him as an integral part of our lives. Loki is incredibly affectionate, cuddly and chatty. He loves napping on our bellies, eating chicken and scrambled eggs and receiving hearty head scratches. Brent and I are completely and wholeheartedly enamored with him. Shortly after we adopted him, I started an Instagram page solely dedicated to Loki (@loki_the_sphynx). His Instagram page quickly picked up a following, noticeably for his seemingly grumpy demeanor and unique look. It has been really fun cultivating posts to share and interacting with the community on Instagram, both on my personal page and Loki’s alike. Loki has helped me return to creative and optimistic parts of myself that were misplaced while I was feeling unmotivated and sad. Animals are incredible healers and I am eternally grateful for Loki’s companionship and generous loyalty. He is truly one of a kind.”
