Frankly speaking, one of the most unusual breeds in our world. They are cats without fur and look like guests from another planet. Most breeders describe them as part child, part monkey, some will say they look as Gremlins. I am talking about a rather rare cat breed – Sphynx cats.
Sphynx regarded to be hairless cats, but, actually, it’s not true. They do have an almost invisible fur. And on the ears, tail, muzzle and feet short and soft hair is allowed. It’s an amazing feeling to touch a Sphynx cat, it is so warm. Eyes are big, ears are full, possesses a tail of a rat. Bodies are not big but muscular with broad chest. As a rule, skin is wrinkled and paw pads are very thick, thus, a cat looks like an acrobat. Skin of Sphynx cats comes in a variety of colours.
Many men, many minds. Many cats, many personalities. They are so versatile. In general, they are described as intelligent, extrovert, very playful, people oriented, active and loving. But some adore loneliness and stay in a solitude most of the day. Some adore being the center of attention. Almost all easily make friends with other pets, as well as children and guests.
First of all, please, remember, Sphynx cats can’t stand cold weather conditions and sudden changes in temperature. It goes without saying, that these cats don’t need brushing, but they require regular bathing, to prevent oil build-up on the skin and a sticky film afterwards. Ears and areas near nails need regular and thorough cleaning.
