Sphynx and your Average beautiful cat

I sadly have to rehome my two beautiful cats. One is a 7 year old sphynx and the other is an 8 year old cat I rescued from an only neighbour. They have only ever been together so would prefer that they go to another home together. Both desexed and sweet cats. Sphynx is a male and my other beauty is a chubby little female

2x Sibling Sphynx

They are both very loving and affectionate, get along with dogs and rabbits and possibly other pets too, they have been socialised from kittenhood with my mum and friends animals so they are quite accepting. Both are exclusively indoor cats, but do spend spring/summer playing with butterflies & leaves in out back yard under supervision. They require weekly grooming which entails washing, nail cutting and ear cleaning. If you don't know SPHYNX cats you will be pleasantly surprised. They love to play, Lola especially loves playing fetch and destroys Christmas trees , they are loving, if there is a lap to sit on they will sit on it whether you like it or not. These two are on a Royal Canine and twice weekly a chicken meal. They drink a lot of water and need to be kept especially warm in winter. They have always been together and seperation gives them anxiety they share everything. If you have a loving home for them, have lots of time to spend playing and petting and would like some company that wont leave you alone, they are for you. I am not trying to sell them for a profit, but history shows people who pay for pets are more likely to look after them. Source Number MB149265

While you might think a hairless cat would require less grooming, the opposite is true for Sphynx cats.

Origins

The Sphynx cat breed, also known as the Canadian Hairless cat, is a relatively new breed that originated in the 1960s. The breed’s history began with the birth of a hairless kitten named Prune in Toronto, Canada. Unlike other breeds with ancient histories, the Sphynx’s lineage can be traced back to this specific kitten, making it a product of careful, intentional breeding.

Prune was crossed with his mother, which produced more hairless kittens, and thus began the process of creating a new breed. Although these first attempts at establishing the Sphynx breed faced numerous challenges due to health issues and genetic problems, further outcrossing and selective breeding led to the robust and healthy breed we know today. The breed was officially recognized internationally in 1979.

Key Characteristics Of Sphynxs

Are Sphynxs Family-Friendly?

Given their friendly and affectionate temperament, Sphynx cats can make excellent family pets.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Sphynxs may suffer from:

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

Hereditary myopathy

Skin problems

Nature / Temperament

Curious, Outgoing, Energetic, Intelligent, Playful

Suitable Environment

Sphynx cats do best in warm, indoor environments. Their lack of fur makes them vulnerable to both cold and heat, so maintaining an indoor temperature that is comfortable for humans will also be comfortable for a Sphynx.

Other Considerations

  • Their most noticeable feature is their apparent lack of fur. While they are often referred to as “hairless,” Sphynx cats actually have a thin layer of downy fuzz covering their bodies, giving them a feel akin to suede.
  • Their skin is highly wrinkled in their youth, but as they grow, the wrinkles smooth out, although some may remain around the shoulders and muzzle.
  • The skin of a Sphynx cat can develop patterns and colours akin to what fur would look like on a furry feline. These patterns are unique to each cat and add to their individual charm.

How can I take good care of my Sphynx?

Nutrition

Like all cats, Sphynx cats require a balanced diet that is high in quality protein. However, due to their higher energy levels and faster metabolism, they may require more food than the average cat. It’s essential to monitor your Sphynx’s weight and condition, adjusting food quantity and frequency as necessary.

Grooming

Their bodies secrete oil, but unlike other cats, they have no fur to absorb this oil, so regular baths are necessary. Depending on the individual cat, baths may be needed weekly or biweekly using a gentle pet shampoo.

Exercise

Regular play and interaction are crucial for a Sphynx cat’s wellbeing. Interactive toys, puzzle feeders, and play sessions with their human companions will keep a Sphynx entertained.

Training

Sphynx cats are intelligent and can be trained to perform tricks and use a scratching post. They are more likely to engage in training activities that are interactive and fun. Positive reinforcement methods work best for this breed.

 

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Most Asked Sphynx Questions

Although they produce fewer allergens due to their lack of fur, Sphynx cats are not entirely hypoallergenic. People with cat allergies react to a protein called Fel d 1, which is present in cat saliva and skin oils. As Sphynx cats groom themselves, they can still spread this allergen around. 

While the Sphynx is known as a hairless breed, they do have a fine layer of downy fuzz, giving them a soft, suede-like feel. Some Sphynx cats may have a small amount of hair on the nose, tail, or toes.

Finding a reputable Sphynx breeder is the key to getting a healthy, well-behaved Sphynx kitten. Sphynx kittens for sale from ethical breeders have a much better chance of growing into calm, gentle adult cats. The average cost of a Sphynx for sale is usually around AUD $2000 to $3500.
