The Sphynx is also known as the Canadian Hairless cat. It is a variety that arises due to genetic mutation. Weighing 3.5 to 7 kilograms, it is muscular and has skin folds like pigskin. Its head is sharply angled at 480 degrees, slightly star-shaped and heart-shaped. The eyes are large and lemon-shaped, most of which are red. This is a cat that is very sensitive to the moon.There are many records of hairless cats throughout history. But it wasn't until the breed's success at cat shows that people started paying attention and became interested in it. TlCA recognizes the breed, but CFA and FIFE refuse to recognize it. This cat is currently a rare breed. Sphinx cats are lively, playful, independent, non-aggressive, and can get along with other dogs and cats. They are affectionate, hoping to be favored by the owner.
Because it is hairless, it has a poor ability to regulate the temperature, and is afraid of both cold and heat. Unlike other cats, this breed of cat can sweat and is sensitive to sunlight (long-time direct sunlight should be avoided). This kind of cat is suitable for apartment breeding.
The female cat is in heat no more than twice a year, the birth rate of the kitten is high, the skin of the newborn kitten is wrinkled, and the hair on the ridge disappears with age. Owners should take care of their cat's ears frequently to prevent ear inflammation or ear mites.
