The breeds of sphinxes that are now popular are modern cats, but they also had distant ancestors. Natural, natural mutations among cats have been observed over the past hundred years, and most likely they happened much earlier. Pictures of a Mexican hairless cat appeared in the Book of the Cat magazine, published back in 1903 by Franz Simpson.
