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. Continue reading

How to Choose the Canadian Sphinx Kitten

Little sphinxes are demanding and gentle children. In order for the sphinx kitten to grow up healthy and its development to be complete, the baby’s diet must be varied and balanced: professional feeds are only Super Premium class, special vitamins and additives, canned food for kittens, it is advisable to feed raw frozen meat, chicken, baby food. It is very important that kittens can communicate with a person as often as possible, starting from the very first days of life, because this is a guarantee that babies will grow up affectionate, sociable and person-oriented.

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
