Canadian Sphynx

The fact that bald cats Sphynx appeared for a long time, confirm the ancient facts. Perhaps even the Aztecs were engaged in their breeding. At the beginning of the twentieth century, at cat shows that took place in America, one could see representatives of the breed disappearing at that time called Mexican Hairless. The last pair of these animals existed before the 1930s, but they had no offspring left. Those cats that exist today are mutating animals bred as a result of breeding work.

The Sphynx is not just a cat without wool. Undoubtedly, the absence of wool is the main sign of the breed, thanks to which the visitors of the exhibitions recognize them immediately. But, breeders and phenologists are accustomed to judge by the existing standard. The Canadian Sphynx has a simply magical appearance, and here it is not only the lack of wool that is taken into account, but also the overall harmonious impression that this breed makes on the people around it. According to its appearance, the Sphynx cat breed looks like a Tanagre statuette.

In these animals, the gracefulness of movements intertwined in a surprising way with rather curved forepaws, a belly that resembles a pear in shape and a tail folded tight into a ball and pressed to the side of the animal. The ears of the Sphynx are large and wide at the base, and at the ends they have a rounded shape. His eyes are very similar to lemon.

Hairless sphinx cats have rather thick skin that forms wrinkles on the head, muzzle and neck. This breed has a dense muscular body, their hind legs are much longer than their front ones, therefore sphinxes have a rather peculiar gait.

The sphinx cat has soft-to-touch skin, covered with a short down over the whole body, and the colors of the Canadian Sphynx can be very diverse, but in most cases it is an even solid color.

Sphynx kittens are born completely bald and in their proportions are significantly different from their parents.

Canadian Sphynx care requires a fairly simple, this breed is almost omnivorous, with excellent appetite, but despite this, some diet still needs to be followed. Canadian Sphynx cats can eat not only canned food, but also dry or natural. Also, the sphinx cat, due to the peculiarities of its skin, can sweat, therefore, the owner should not forget about the rules of hygiene, wipe it with a damp cloth, or bathe in warm water.
