History

Mother Nature and a dedicated group of cat breeders have created a beautiful and loving breed. It has taken nearly thirty years to finally gain the acceptance and set the breed standard. Early incidences of this natural phenomenon are sparsely documented in history from paintings to letters, but no documented breeding program can be traced earlier than the mid 1900's.

Standard

General Description - The Sphynx appears to be a hairless cat, although it is not truly hairless. The skin should have the texture of chamois. It may be covered with very fine down which is almost imperceptible to both the eye and the touch. On the ears, muzzle, tail, feet and scrotum, short, soft, fine hair is allowed. Lack of coat makes the cat quite warm to the touch. Whiskers and eyebrows may be present, either whole or broken, or may be totally absent. The cat should not be small or dainty. Males may be up to 25 percent larger so long as proper proportions are maintained. The Sphynx is sweet-tempered, lively, intelligent and above all amenable to handling. (Read more...
