Sphynx Personality

Bald and wrinkly, this cat is not everybody's idea of love at first sight - but spend a few minutes with this pixie-faced charmer, and the Sphynx is guaranteed to win you over.

You'll find this kitty to be highly affectionate, sociable and intelligent, getting along nicely with adult humans and most other household pets. The Sphynx is alert and inquisitive and loves to be the center of attention, performing silly antics for your entertainment. It has an abundance of energy and wants to be always either near you, on top of you or showing off for you. In short, your Sphynx craves attention, and if there's none forthcoming, watch out! This breed is most ideal for adult households where there is always somebody around, but if your schedule keeps you away from home for more than a few hours each day, then your pet would enjoy having a pet of its own – another active cat will be fine company for your Sphynx, and they can entertain each other while you're away.A stimulating environment with plenty of toys, scratching posts and things to climb on will be much appreciated as well.

Although it's called hairless, the Sphynx is actually covered with a very fine downy coat, but the hairless look is accentuated by the lack of whiskers or eyelashes. Very warm and soft to the touch, this little snuggler has been described as a 'suede hot water bottle'.
