Hi! So I am thinking about getting a sphynx cat for my dad.littke bit of backstory, I brought my sphynx cat home for the summer(I'm a college student) and my dad just fell in love with her! His face lights up everytime she does her usual antics and he asks about her all the time. He is an animal lover at heart but doesn't feel that he has the time to properly take care of a dog. He isn't a furry cat person because they are often aloof and he wants a cuddle animal. He definitely needs a pet though because he is officially an empty nester and he will soon be going through radiation treatment. A pet at home instead of a empty house will keep his spirit up. Solution? Get him a sphynx! But my only concern is that I've only dealt with one sphynx cat before, my own, so I'm not sure her characteristics are typical of sphynx cats.My nut, is high energy, affectionate, demanding,and a social butterfly. She has a big personality. So are there any timid,shy, or aloof sphynxs out there? Any none affectionate ones? Or is she pretty standard?
