This breed can trace its line back to a Canadian kitty with the delightful name of Prune. Prune was the only hairless kitten in a litter, and she was crossed with other hairless cats until we got the friendly, misunderstood the Sphynx cat.
If it wasn’t obvious already, the Sphynx cat is completely bald. Well, not completely, this cat is actually covered in a very fine layer of peach fuzz, making them feel as beautifully soft as chamois. This fuzz is coloured and patterned as their fur would be, and comes in a variety of combinations. Their muscular body is clearly visible through this fine coat, as is their absolutely adorable little pot-belly.
If the Sphynx cat doesn’t look like your average cat, it’s not, and we mean that in the best way possible. This breed is unbelievably friendly and affectionate. And they need your devotion in return - your Sphynx will be devastated when you leave the house and delighted when you return home for a much-needed cuddle. They are great with other good-natured animals or kids. Have you considered getting a second cat? Who are we kidding, of course you have!
