Where did the bald cats come from?

When I saw the bald cat for the first time, I was very surprised. But as soon as I took her in my arms, and for all my life I fell in love with this small warm miracle! The Sphinx cannot be called just a cat, it is a creature that came to us as if from another planet. This is a cat shock. The first shock you will experience when you first look at the sphinx. You will not remain indifferent! The second shock is the sensation of a hot body in your hands. Whoever ever picks up the sphinx will never let it out. What do we know about these amazing cats? The first historical mention of naked cats dates back to the time of the Aztecs. Later information about them was found in India and Morocco, as well as in Paraguay. Continue reading

How to care for the sphinx?

But still, the vast majority of sphinxes are completely bald, so you need to carefully monitor the temperature in the room. Drafts and dampness must not be allowed, otherwise the cat may catch a cold. Normal for these cats can be considered normal room temperature – 20-25 degrees. Sphinxes are very fond of basking in the sun. Being in the sun for a long time, a cat can tan, and its creamy skin will turn into chocolate. But to allow a cat to receive such a dose of ultraviolet radiation is by no means impossible. The delicate skin of the sphinx, like human skin, can get a sunburn. Heat-loving sphinxes can burn their delicate body near a hot battery or fireplace, so watch them carefully, as if you were watching a small child. If it’s cold at home, you can even dress the sphinx in a warm jumpsuit. Usually bald cats don’t mind a warm suit, and some just love to dress up! As these cats sweat, they should be bathed regularly in warm water with a mild baby shampoo. By the way, they are very positive about this procedure. They bathe the sphinxes about once every two weeks. Continue reading

History
Like some other hairless cat breeds, the Canadian Sphynx arose as a result of chance – a genetic mutation. One day, a cat nicknamed Elizabeth had an unusual hairless kitten, which was named Prun. It happened in Canada in 1966. The owners crossed it with cats of various breeds, however, the mechanism of the absence of hair was not fully fixed, since the gene was recessive.

However, success came along with the birth of another bald kitten in another state – he was born in Waden, Minnesota, and received the name Epidermis, which directly indicates the main feature of the pet. He was crossed with the same hairless cat from Z. Stardust cattery, which was a real breakthrough. About 10 years have passed between the appearance of Prun and Epidermis, and, it can be said, they can be considered the “fathers” of the breed. Continue reading
