Sphynx Cats

The Sphynx is a specially bred type of cat, also known as the Canadian Hairless. One of Its main distinguishing characteristics is seemingly (but not actually) hairless skin which is the same color as their fur would be, also showing the same common cat fur markings you would see in other breeds such as spots, stripes and waves.

Instead of the normal thick fur attributed to most breeds of cat, the Sphynx has only a small quantity of ‘vellus hair’ coating its body. Vellus hair is fuzzy, light colored and barely noticeable, meaning that the Sphynx is much more sensitive to cold temperatures and sunlight than other breeds. This characteristic also makes Sphynx cats very warm to the touch.

It is common for this breed to lack whiskers, although they are sometimes present – as well as eyebrows. The Sphynx has a large wedge shaped head and long triangular ears. Picking up a Sphynx cat will reveal that it is surprisingly heavy for its size, sometimes weighing up to 7kg. They are bred to have a slight pot belly to help with digestion, the Sphynx’s tail length and thickness is similar to that of most other breeds – but again hairless.

This breed is relatively unique in that it needs to be bathed at least once per week, and also requires frequent ear cleaning. This level of care is once again due to the Sphynx’s lack of fur. Problems stemming from neglect of proper grooming include various infections in places like the eyes and nose, and an increased risk of skin cancers. Fortunately most Sphynx enjoy bathing, water and human interaction in general - making it less of a chore most of the time.

Sphynx cats make excellent companions as they are playful, intelligent and affectionate. Sphynx’s are also territorial and highly energetic; they get along well with other cats in general. The breed’s life span is between 13 and 15 years as an average, though some can live beyond the age of 17 with a healthy lifestyle and diet. Sphynx require a constant supply of food. Due to their lack of insulating fur they rely on food not just for nourishment, but to produce vital heat which helps regulate their body temperature in times of need.

The Sphynx will usually have 2-5 kittens in a litter, the kittens must be kept in a warm and sterilized germ free environment, and with their mother for at least 12 weeks before being moved to a different location, due to their lack of hair, and proneness to infection. Sphynx are highly affectionate as kittens, and are known to cuddle up to their owners for warmth day and night, but this type of cat is not recommended for owners with young children as they can be quite temperamental when handled heavily or aggravated for long periods of time

Care of Sphynx Cats
The Sphynx is one of the most difficult cats to keep clean and healthy on a long term basis, requiring at least one bath per week to remove bacteria and other nastiness from its near fully unprotected skin. The heavy maintenance factor of this cat is tenfold made up for by the breed’s good temperament, high intelligence, success in shows and also the fact that it is very amenable to handling – making bathing grooming and other care less of a chore.
Sphynx cats require a premium diet to remain healthy. This breed needs to have access to food and a bowl of fresh water 24 hours a day, mainly because it uses these to regulate its body temperature. Owners should choose to shy away from the cheaper produced cat foods and buy either higher priced products or special formulated foods made specifically for hairless types. Some owners choose to switch their Sphynx to a raw food diet; this can be beneficial but also pricy as the cat cannot be fed many of the hormones and artificial substances found in produced meat. The solution for this is to buy organically; organic meats should be available from your local butchers. You should shred or blend meats before feeding them to your Sphynx to help with digestion.
The Sphynx is not truly hairless; it has a thin layer of vellus hair covering its body. Even so this still leaves its skin virtually unprotected, and removes the advantage other cats enjoy of their thick fur absorbing most of their body oils. Dust, grease, and dirt will quickly accumulate around the Sphynx’s nail beds, ears and nearly everywhere else if neglected, to avoid such build up, the cat should be regularly bathed at least once per week depending on lifestyle.
Unlike most other breeds, Sphynx are usually rather tolerant of bathing – some will even enjoy it, either way you aren’t likely to encounter any sort of resistance when the time comes. Ensure that you carefully clean the areas around the Sphynx’s nails, eyes and ears, giving the rest of its body a good scrub with shampoo. When looking for a shampoo brand its best to ask a vet, as this breeds skin is easily irritated.
Your Sphynx should have its own litter tray, which should be changed every 2-3 days in order to keep it as clean as possible. It isn’t recommended to dress a Sphynx cat in clothes, for obvious reasons covered already – such as irritation of the skin, and manual body temperature regulation, but also because it will sometimes cause balance and movement issues, which can be disastrous for a cat.
Ask regular advice from a vet on anything you aren’t sure about. It isn’t much to ask in exchange for a healthy cat.

Breeding Sphynx Cats

The Sphynx cat or ‘Canadian Hairless’ is a refined breed that has been selectively bred from two hairless cats found in 1975. Since then the breed has risen to popularity and the cat is seen commonly, although it is still considered to be one of the rarer modern breeds.

There are strict breeding guidelines related to breeding Sphynx: breeders must be aware of the constantly changing rules and regulations involved with breeding any type of cat, and the health and genetic issues involved with this one specifically. In outcrossing, all cats used should be sound of temperament, healthy and of a good size.

The Sphynx cat is genetically similar to a Devon rex, its hairless mutation is caused by the same gene but with a different part of it being dominant. Modern examples of the breed are mostly healthy with no severe common defects, meaning that it is not too difficult to find a good male and female with which to breed more.

When looking for a female Sphynx, it is important to choose one with prominent cheek bones and large ears. In terms of size choose a medium sized muscular cat, the best build for carrying kittens. The price can sometimes be high for a good Sphynx, but it is worth the initial investment.

When choosing a male Sphynx, it is important to decide whether you will use a stud or purchase a cat of your own. The benefits and cost of using a stud are much more attractive. Purchasing your own male cat is risky as it may lose, or never gain interest in mating with the female. Remember to ask for up to date health certificates for any stud you use.

Prior to delivery you should ensure that the Female Sphynx is allocated a warm comfortable area in which to eventually give birth. Get the female used to spending time in this location, and after delivery ensure that this location is well cushioned, warm and clean, and spacious enough to accommodate mother and kittens. No heavy duty disinfectants or cleaning products should be used as they will irritate the cat’s skin.

From a few weeks after birth and sometimes before, Sphynx kittens will need to be bathed and washed in warm water - whilst being careful not to get any into their eyes. It is advised to keep the area they inhabit well heated; thin blankets can be applied if necessary.

As a general cast iron rule, Sphynx kittens should not be sold or re-homed before the age of 12 weeks, due to their lack of fur they are extra-prone to infections and illnesses, living in a dirty environment can lead to serious conditions such as skin cancer. Due to things like this, it is important that Sphynx cats are properly and responsibly sold or re-homed to owners that have the time to look after them and a living arrangement that will not cause them to become unhealthy.
