Canadian Sphynx – Standard and breed status

The Canadian Sphynx is not just a cat without hair. Of course, the lack of wool is the main sign of the breed by which visitors recognize the sphinxes at exhibitions. But for breeders and felinologists, the sphinx has a specific standard for all other parts of the body, and the lack of hair on the body is not the most important sign regarding the morphology of the type of head, body, character and general harmonious impression that the sphinx should produce. The face of a real sphinx is simply magical. It resembles a Tanagra figurine. All the lines of his body are smooth, fluid, but at the same time, you cannot call them elegant. They surprisingly harmoniously combine grace of movement with curved front paws-arms, belly shaped like a pear and tail folded into a tight bagel and pressed to the side. The ears of the sphinx are huge and wide at the base, with rounded tips, medium set (not high and not low), eyes in shape resemble a lemon. The skin is thick, forms folds on the head, face, neck, stomach and a little on the body. The body is dense, muscular. The hind limbs are longer than the forelimbs, which is why the sphinx has a peculiar gait. The skin is suede to the touch, due to the short gun covering the whole body, hot. The coat is retained by all sphinxes on the nose, behind the ears, it can be on the tip of the tail and legs, to the hock, in cats on testicles. In addition, wool can appear in these places and along the body during hormonal changes (estrus, pregnancy, lactation), with improper feeding and at a low temperature.

The recognition of the Canadian sphinxes as a breed was not easy, and only the “second wave” in breeding, starting from the re-found animals, allowed us to create this unique breed.
