Cat Breeds- Sphynx  Cat Breed

Cats give us love and make us smile

As cat owners and people who care deeply for animals and wildlife, we wanted our Cat Encyclopedia to be a website that could empower pet owners to create the most positive, loving environment for their cats. Cat Encyclopedia realizes that owning a house cat is like adding a new member to your family.

The intriguing Sphynx cat never fails to draw a reaction from people. Some  love the bald, wrinkled look of this unique cat,  while other people may be  less than enthusiastic. Sphynx cats have very soft skin and are so  warm to the touch that you just want to cuddle up with them. The Sphynx toes are like fingers and they use them that way as they investigate and play with everything that takes their curiosity. The wrinkled faces remind you of the wisdom we all gather with age while their big ears and lemon-shaped eyes give this cat a unique look. Their rounded Buddha-like bodies bring a smile to the face.
 

Sphynx come in a variety of colors, including solid, particolor, tabby, and tortoiseshell. Their color is viewed on the pigment of the skin and on the few hairs (down) they have. Perhaps their second most distinguishable feature is their huge ears, frequently more than 2 or 3 inches in height. The Sphynx cat also has an open and sweet expression, greatly facilitated by the large lemon shaped eyes. This is a sturdy medium-boned, athletic and highly muscular cat. The belly of the Sphynx should give the appearance of having recently eaten a large meal. Because of their friendly nature, Sphynx cats often make excellent show cats as they are highly accepting of new people and easy to handle. Because of their lack of absorbent coat, Sphynx tend to get oily and need to be bathed often, but they are not hypo-allergenic. While some individuals with allergies find they are not allergic to Sphynx, others discover they are allergic but usually to a lesser extent.

The Sphynx is an inquisitive, intelligent, and extremely friendly cat breed. The term "Velcro lap cat" used to describe the desire of the Sphynx to be on you all the time, is very accurate. Sphynx cats love to greet every new person visiting the home, and most get along well with dogs and other pets. Because of their lack of hair, Sphynx have a tendency to get cold but they are intelligent enough to find a warm place, like a  sunny window, or under a blanket with their owners. Sphynx are highly active and will entertain themselves for hours and some Sphynx even fetch toys. Many Sphynx owners describe their cats as elf-like or childlike due to their inquisitive and intelligent nature. Sphynx are loyal and dedicated to their owners and make very affectionate companions for everyone.
