THE PERFECT PET
If you own a Sphynx, you already know that they are smart, spunky and hilarious. Yes, Sphynx are instantly recognizable for their alien Yoda appearance. Sphynx cats are not actually naked, but they have a very fine layer of down, which is perfect to pet. They feel like velvet..so nice and soft. Our Sphynx don't have whiskers but some Sphynx can depending upon the individual cat.
THE BEHAVIOR AND ATTITUDE OF A SPHYNX
Sphynx cats are described by their owners as friendly, intelligent, extremely curious and just plain amazing. Sphynx cats act like part monkey, part puppy, part human, and part kitty. They demand to be the center of attention. They are often very playfully mischievous and purposefully clumsy, all for the fun of the owner's and visitors laughs. They are a highly curious breed, and the Sphynx cats and kittens are equal parts loving and very active.
Sphynx cats and Sphynx kittens are very athletic. Most adults can jump to the top of a seven foot door with no problem, and some kittens can jump as high as your counter between 2 and 3 months of age. They enjoy and also require fun time and exercise outlets to keep their curious minds occupied. Toys, stalking lures and tall cat trees and scratching posts help to entertain your Sphynx cat or kitten. Don't be surprised if they wake you up and want to play fetch at midnight.
The Sphynx prefer human attention but they are also happy to enjoy the company of other pets including dogs..etc. if introduced early in life.
