These plants have been known to make cats ill or possibly die from ingestion, also some tips below to deter the sphynx from eating or having interest in the plants.

Here are some tips to deter your sphynx from eating or chewing the plants.
You can sphynx-proof houseplants by making them smell not so inviting. Most sphynx dislike the smell of citrus. Throw orange and lemon peels in your potted plants. Another option is spraying the leaves directly with diluted lemon juice or orange oil. Also, not super cheap but how about storing the plants in a large dog cage? The plant is still accessible for watering but keeps the little paws and whiskers away from the plants.
