HISTORY

The breeds of sphinxes that are now popular are modern cats, but they also had distant ancestors. Natural, natural mutations among cats have been observed over the past hundred years, and most likely they happened much earlier. Pictures of a Mexican hairless cat appeared in the Book of the Cat magazine, published back in 1903 by Franz Simpson. He wrote, they were a brother and a sister who were given away by the Indians, who assured us that they were the last cats of the Aztecs, and they were bred only in Mexico City. But no one was interested in them, and they sunk into oblivion.

Other cases of the appearance of hairless cats were noted in France, Morocco, Australia, and Russia. Continue reading

Who are the sphinxes

When at one of the exhibitions for the first time shocked cat lovers appeared a graceful, devoid of hair, a cat, with big ears, huge eyes and an incredibly mysterious, mystical look, many thought that among them by some miracle there was a deity worshiped by absolutely all the inhabitants of the Ancient Egypt – from the Pharaohs to the common people. There is nothing surprising in the fact that the new breed of “lunar” cats was called the Sphinxes – in honor of the giant Egyptian lion, which from time immemorial has been protecting the sleep of the ancient pharaohs.

In total there are seven breeds of hairless cats, three of which appeared as a result of a natural mutation – these are the Canadian and Don sphynxes, as well as Kohon.

Moon cats on earth (part 1)

Almost everyone who has dealt with the sphinxes claim that this is the most loving breed of all that has ever been created on Earth. The special character is one of the equally typical features of the sphinx, as well as its naked hot body and unusual appearance. It seems that together with the hair, the sphinx has lost a significant part of feline behavior. I have a wonderful attitude to all representatives of the cat world, I like many breeds, beautiful and amazing in their own way, but I would just like to emphasize that the sphynx is no longer a cat! Obviously, something happens to the psyche of the animal under the influence of a mutation that cardinally changes its appearance. Ask the owners of hairless dogs – Mexican, Peruvian or Chinese Crested – about this, they all will unanimously say that their pets are no longer quite dogs: they are very affectionate and completely devoid of aggressiveness! However, they were considered not just dogs, but special human helpers with magical properties. Continue reading
