Sphynx cats are beautiful, but…

Furless Sphynx Cats

Sphynx cats are certainly the most exotic looking of all cat types but their appearance is not everybody’s cup of tea

Many people find Sphynx cats scary looking and they believe that these felines are dangerous and will bite you or scratch you if you come too close.

It comes as surprise to many that, actually, these cats are one of the most cuddly breeds: they seek human company and want to be stroked and touched a lot. Something that many ordinary cats only like in moderation.

Sphynx cats and water

People who live with sphynx cats will tell you that they, in many ways, resemble dogs more than other cats. They like to play, snuggle and talk with humans and – you won’t believe it till you see it – they LOVE to be in water.

Water may be the everyday cat’s worst enemy but not for sphynx cats. The furless sphynxes love to bathe, splatter around in the tub and play. However, bathing is more than play, it’s necessary. Sphynxes need to be bathed regularly to clean their skin of oils and thus keep it clean and healthy.

Personality of Sphynx cats

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover!

Sphynxes are known for their extroverted, sociable behavior. They display a high level of energy, intelligence, curiosity, and affection for their owners.

Appearance of Sphynx cats

These breed standards are defined by The International Cat Association (TICA): A wedge-shaped head with prominent cheekbones; large, lemon-shaped eyes; very large ears with no hair on inside, but soft down on outside base; well-muscled, powerful neck of medium length; medium length torso, barrel-chested, and full, round abdomen, sometimes called a pot belly; paw pads thicker than other cats, giving the appearance of walking on cushions; whiplike, tapering tail from body to tip, (sometimes with fur all over tail or a puff of fur on the tip, like a lion); muscular body.

We know, Sphynx cats are awesome as are many other pure breeds. But please keep in mind that ALL CATS ARE BEAUTIFUL and animal shelters are full of amazing sweet fur balls that deserve a loving home. Don’t buy animals – adopt!
