Originally called as Canadian Hairless Cat, Sphynx was born out of a genetic mutation to a domestic cat, Elizabeth in Toronto who had black and white fur. The gene for hairlessness in cats is recessive, meaning sometimes hairless cats may give birth to furry cats all the same. Their breeding and popularity started in mid-1970's. These unique creatures have no different personality than other breeds. All they demand is love and endless human attention!

The name, Sphynx was given by inspiration from a huge limestone sculpture in the Egyptian desert. The monument that was shaped smooth over the millennia through strikes of wind, sand, and rain storms.

Here are some tips from Avoderm Natural to get you started:

  • they should be given a bath as often as possible as they have no fur to separate sweat and oils from the skin;
  • ear cleaning is a must;
  • look out for acne popped from the moisture build-up;
  • clip their nails regularly as hairless paws catch more dirt;
  • keep note of their temperature in cold weather with blankets and don't overheat as well;
  • they need a lot of socialization, attend with love as they can even get depressed.
