Naturally, caring for the sphinx is different from caring for cats with hair, however it is not as heavy as it seems – the main thing is not to forget to follow the basic rules: Skin Care Sweat from Canadian sphinxes is allocated throughout the body and, when dry, gives a brownish tint not only to the cat, but to all the things that it touches. Between the folds of the skin of the animal, skin secretions constantly accumulate, which collect dirt – therefore, the sphinx must be bathed periodically (especially since it transfers well to water procedures).

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. In the last century, there were ancient hairless cats of the Mexican breed, but the last of them died in the thirties of the last century, after which all attempts by breeders to recreate the breed did not bring success.
