Dragonheart's Scavenger Hunt

Here are our answers to Dragonhearts' Scavenger Hunt.

1. What do you think of when you hear the word "Sphynx"?

Well, before meeting our good friend Dragonheart, we would have thought of Egypt of course, and The Great Sphinx statue!

This is a trick question though, the key word being "hear". The Sphynx breed of cat is spelled with a "y" and the Sphinx statue in Egypt is spelled with an "i". So when you hear it, you don't know which one it is!

Now, when we hear the word sphynx, (with a "y") we think of the famous Dragonheart, who has reached celebricat status!!!

2. Find the full (registered) name, as well as the more commonly used daily name of the following:
  • Me - HairNSkin Dragonheart aka Drago or Drake. We call him "D"!!
  • My sire - Ch HairNSkin Obi Wan Kenobi aka Obi
  • My dam (full {registered} name only) - New Taj Mahal Sherazade of HairNSkin
  • My brother and littermate - HairNSkin Merlin aka Merlin
  • My older sister who will be having a litter that I will hopefully be getting a little brother or sister from - HairNSkin From Dusk 'til Dawn aka Dawn
  • When did I first start blogging? - 11/25/2006
  • What was my Gotcha Day? - 11/25/2006
  • When did my human mom first post about me on her blog? - 11/28/2006
4. What is another name for the Sphynx breed? - Canadian Hairless

What was the name of the Sphynx cat character in the Austin Powers movies, and what is the cat's real name? - Mr. Bigglesworth aka SGC Belfry Ted Nude-gent.

5. List the colours of the following cats:
  • Me - black and white
  • My sire - brown classic tabby and white
  • My dam - blue point
According to the CFA (Cat Fanciers' Association) what breeds can be used as outcrosses when breeding Sphynx? Until when can these breeds be used? - American Shorthair, Domestic Shorthair/ Domestic Sphynx Outcross until 12/31/2010
In Europe, what breed has been used most often as an outcross? - Devon Rex

6. Name three themes that my breeder has used for her litters, and give the name of one cat from each of these themes.

Fairy Tales - Dragonheart
Around the World - Sidney Dundee
Star Wars Cats - Yoda

7. Give the German word for the following (use the correct article and capitalization):
  • Cat - Katze
  • Kitten - Kitten
  • Cat Food - Katzenahrung
  • Cat Litter -Katzesänfte
  • Litterbox - Sänftekasten
  • Scratching Post - Verkratzen des Pfostens
