Sphynx

Sphynx - Cat Facts

Sphynx (aka Canadian Hairless) cats are a rare type of cat with extremely little fur, or at most a short fuzz over its body, and no whiskers (vibrissae). The skin of the Sphynx cat is the color their fur would be, and all the usual cat marking patterns (solid, point, van, tabby, tortie, etc) may be found in Sphynx too.

The Sphynx cat is actually quite well-muscled and robustly healthy, with a few obvious weaknesses. It is important to keep a Sphynx warm and free from drafts, especially as kitten, since have no more protection from cold than a naked human would.  Sphynx cats are also prone to sunburn and sunstroke because they lack the normal protection of fur. . As pets, the Sphynx cat is notably more social than "normal" cats, and happier to be handled, but also require more maintenance including weekly bathing and ear-cleaning.
