Sphyx Cats

The first successful breed of the Spynx was born in 1966 and it was named Prune. Prunes line died out without descendants, but in 1967 hairless kittens were rescued in Toronto and they had a long haired mother who was rescued to, two of them were taken to Europe where one of the kittens was bred to Devon Rex. The cat had hairless cats which meant the recessive gene was at the same locus as the Devon gene.

The Sphynx cat is one of the weirdest looking cats! They are hairless cats that are meant to have a texture like chamois leather. It might be covered with very soft thin hair which is described as peach fuzz. Sphynx cats don’t have hair so they usually like to cuddle up to people or animals to keep them warm. Their hair is the same colour their skin. They sometimes have eyebrows present that are whole or broken.
