Did you know that there is a breed of pet cat that is totally hairless? In 1966 a domestic cat gave birth to a hairless kitten in Toronto, Canada. It was discovered to be a natural mutation. Cat fanciers in Europe and North America have since bred the Sphynx or hairless cat to normal coated cats and then back to hairless.
The Sphynx is not always totally hairless. Some have a fine down on the body, which gives their skin the texture of a warm peach. Light hair is often present on the nose, tail and toes.
Since they have no fur for protection, Sphynx cats feel very cold in winter and have to kept inside the house for warmth.
These cats are extremely inquisitive and love to be the centre of attention.
