Sphynx is incredibly nice and snuggling in nature. I often meet the statement, that they are not just cats, but rather something among cat, dog, monkey and alien. I have to admit, that all who claim that are right ! They are such a little walking ovens, who are ready to cuddle you to death anytime and anywhere

Although these cats look quite delicate, it’s not true at all. They are relatively tough, nimble and full of energy. When I saw them the first time, I thought that their skin will be very prone to scratches and different wounds. I was surprised, that it is resistant even in cat games where they push out their claws. However, if a scratch appears, the skin will heal quickly and easily.

Hair and skin

In general:        The cat looks bald, could be covered by a soft fluff.

Texture:        As a cloth made of leather. If we caress the skin of a cat, it feels like the skin is resisting.

Skin folds:        They are desirable particularly around the mouth, between the ears and around shoulder-blades. Folds shouldn’t be developed so much to influence the normal functions of a cat. Short soft fine hair on the legs, on the ridge of the nose and on the facial bones, on the back of the ears, on the tip of the tail and on the scrotum is allowed.
