THE SPHYNX

The Sphinx is characterized by a mutation that inhibits hair growth.

The Sphinx is not a genetic manipulation, but a natural mutation caused by the presence of a gene called “hereditary alopecia” or “hypotricosis congenital”. Therefore, both parents have to possess that gene.

We see the first breeding of the Sphinx in 1966 in Ontario, Canada when Elizabeth, a female street cat gave birth to a naked kitten baptised Prune. That obviously sparked interest.

Almost without hair, these cats don’t deal well with extreme temperature.(With other cats, fur has a very important role in maintaining body temperature and ensures protection against both cold and heat. There are a few precautions to take.

The Sphinx is obviously more an indoor cat. The sphinx is at its most comfortable in a warm and cozy atmosphere. The outside world and all its dangers justifies keeping your cat in a more secure environment.

Contrary to popular belief the Sphinx is not a fragile cat. Is life span is the same as other cats.

With is troubling and mysterious look we can only but admire it. Very affectionate it is an excellent companion. Whoever has lived with a Sphinx will vouch for the sincerity and affection of these cats.
