Sphynx kitten for sale. The Sphynx cat is a breed of cat known for its lack of coat (fur). It was developed through selective breeding, starting in the 1960s. The skin should have the texture of chamois, as it has fine hairs, or they may be completely hairless. Whiskers may be present, either whole or broken, or may be totally absent. They also have a narrow, long head, and webbed feet. Their skin is the color that their fur would be, and all the usual cat markings (solid, point, van, tabby, tortie, etc.) may be found on the Sphynx cat’s skin. Because they have no coat, they lose more body heat than coated cats. This makes them warm to the touch as well as heat-seeking. Sphynx kitten for sale

Behavior

A male purebred Sphynx in the “mink” pattern. Like a pointed cat, the mink pattern also exhibits darker points: the ears, tips of tail, feet and nose. However, whereas the pointed pattern is entirely colorless everywhere else on the body, the mink coloration has some color throughout the body and just slightly darker points in adulthood. The mink pattern can be combined with any color.
Sphynx are known for their extroverted behavior. They display a high level of energy, intelligence, curiosity, and affection for their owners.They are one of the more dog-like breeds of cats, frequently greeting their owners at the door and friendly when meeting strangers.
