Being labeled with a “bad guy” or a “villain” in the movies, Sphynx cats are not as appreciated as other fluffier kitties. That doesn’t mean they can’t be any cuter! On the contrary, Sphynxes are super adorable and adoptable, loving, and their odd-looking appearance will get into your heart right away. Who else can beat the Sphynx feline of being a heart burglar without the fur?
The uniqueness of the Sphynx has its story. In the mid-1960s, a cat in Ontario gave birth to a hairless kitten, as the result of a natural genetic mutation. Through careful breeding, Sphynx cats have evolved into the lovely animals you can see today. Sphinxes come in a variety of colors and patterns and, as they look technically, are not “naked” or “bald” or “hairless”. If you look closely, you can see that it is covered with a thin coat.
