It’s obvious that Sphynx cats have a unique and very cool look. You would think the origin of these cats should be from some warm country, and that is actually wrong. Canadian Sphynx came from Canada while another well-known breed, the Donskoy Sphynx, is from Russia. They have a fun personality and a very cool look, it’s like having a little alien at home.

We also want to tell you a few interesting facts about these amazing cats.
- Donskoy Sphynx have webs between their toes, while Canadian Sphynx don’t;
- Sphinx cats have a faster metabolism than other cats so they need more food;
- Their body is about 4°C warmer than most other cats;
- They are not actually completely hairless, they are covered with a very fine layer of fluff that feels like suede when you touch it;
- Unfortunately, they are not completely hypoallergenic. If you are allergic to a cat fur, you might be OK around Sphynx, but if the problem comes from Fel d1, an allergenic protein in cat saliva, you might need to consider another type of pet;
- They are not very good at regulating their body temperature, meaning they can get overheated and cold very easy;
- If your Sphinx likes laying in sunlight, consider a sunscreen. Their skin is very sensitive and has no coat to protect it. And yes, they can get sunburned.
