Sphynx Cat Behavior,Personality,feeding.
Sphynx is a hairless cat that originated due to natural mutation.
In 1966 a domestic cat gave birth to a hairless kitten in Toronto,
Canada and thus Sphynx came into existence. Cat breeders in Europe
and North America have bred the Sphynx to normal coated cats and then
back to hairless to create a genetically sound cat with a large gene
pool and hybrid vigor.

The Sphynx Cat coat is not precisely hairless. These cats do have
a fine suede-like coat that is soft and warm to the touch. There

the toes. The Sphynx Cat has a large wide head with a slender neck.
The ears are set tall and open. They have large eyes that are slightly
slanting and high rounded cheekbones. The legs are long with thick
rounded paws. The tail is long. slender and whip-like. The skin
may be wrinkled between the ears. around the muzzle and shoulders.
Most of the time they do not have whiskers. The Sphynx is a medium-sized

The Sphynx is considered to be a shorthaired cat. The Sphynx cats
are very smart. playful. and lively companions. People that are
allergic to cats may be able to tolerate this hairless breed. The
Sphynx does need regular care and cleaning of its skin. because
when the Sphynx sweats greasy detritus can build up. If this cleaning
of the skin is neglected. the detritus has to be sponged or even
scraped away. The Sphynx cats may develop lumps and are prone to
allergies. The International Cat Association recognizes the Sphynx
as a breed. however many registering organizations refuse the Sphynx
stating that the cat is a genetic malformation. The Sphynx cats
are rare and breeders usually have a waiting list for their kittens.
