CONTENT AND CARE

The main difficulty is caring for bare skin. In numerous folds, skin secretions accumulate, collecting dirt like a magnet, so from time to time, you should bathe the sphinx in warm water with a special shampoo for animals. Also, you can use baby soft shampoos that do not have a strong smell. Not too dirty skin can be wiped with a special damp cloth. Do not let the sphinxes spend a lot of time under the sun’s rays – their skin burns like the human skin, and this does not affect the appearance of the animal in the best way.

Sphinxes are very clean cats, therefore, it is very important to constantly keep the tray clean. Like other cats, they need to trim their nails as they grow, but they need to be watched a little more carefully, because delicate skin is easy to hurt, even with ordinary scratching.

Sphinx ear care is also more serious. Due to breed characteristics, their sulfur separation is increased, and the huge auricles collect all the dust that comes in the way of a curious animal. Accordingly, the accumulated dirt needs to be cleaned more often than other cats. This is easy to do with cotton buds (be careful not to damage the eardrum).

The eyes of the sphinxes are devoid of eyelashes, so they, unlike other cats, do not have additional protection against ingress of dirt. In this regard, secretions can accumulate in the corners of the eyes, and then, the eyes should be washed with boiled water or a special tool that can be bought at a veterinary pharmacy.

Compared to other cat breeds, sphinxes eat quite a lot. Due to the lack of wool, they have an accelerated metabolism, and they need much more energy. However, do not let them overeat: everything should be in moderation. After all, nothing hides their figure, and every excess fat fold will be in full view.

Devoted, loving and loyal, Canadian Sphinxes love attention and follow their master everywhere. Well, or, at least, for fun. Despite the appearance, in the shower there are “fluffy” cats that walk on their own. Lost the sphinx? Check the tops of open doors. Suddenly, you can find them there, because hide and seek is the favorite game of the Canadian Sphinx.
