7 misconceptions about sphynx cats (part 1)

7 misconceptions about sphynx cats Sphynx cats are perhaps the most unusual representatives of the pet cat kingdom. They seem to be some kind of alien creatures. There are many misconceptions about them that need to be resolved. Sphinxes – Egyptian cats In mythology, the sphinx is a monster with the body of a lion and the face and chest of a woman. The most famous statue of the Great Sphinx. According to the definition of Titus Flavius, a Roman scientist and writer, the Egyptian sphinx is a symbol of strength and mind: the lion’s body denotes strength, the human face – mind.

CANADIAN SPHINX: BREED HISTORY

Mention of hairless cats can be found in antiquity. Naked cats probably were still among the Aztecs. Representatives of the disappeared ancient breed, called Mexican hairless, were shown at the first cat shows in the USA at the beginning of the 20th century. The last couple survived until the early 30s, unfortunately, without leaving offspring. According to the description, Mexican hairless differed from modern sphinxes: they had a long body, a wedge-shaped head with amber eyes and long mustaches, which modern sphinxes simply do not have. In winter, long hair grew on the back and tail, which disappeared by the summer. The genetics of this mutation has remained unknown. Perhaps the Mexican hairless was genetically close to the Don Sphinx, because both of them, with their hairlessness, still have a mustache and a tendency to dress in a fur coat for winter.
