Sure to get a reaction, the Sphynx is probably the most unique cat breed you will ever come across. These naked beauties have very soft chamois like skin that is warm to the touch. They are very loving and are always looking to cuddle up with you. They are definitely the most affectionate and unique breed of cat you will come across, always seeking out your companionship unlike other breeds that tend to stay to themselves.
I absolutely LOVE my sphynx cats. They each have a personality of their own and love to be the center of attention. I can hardly sit at the computer without one trying to rub against my fingers as I type. I have one cat Cleo that will go throughout the house 'calling' to me when she wants to snuggle. They are so playful and fun to be around. They are great with kids and other animals.
Though warm to the touch the sphynx tend to be cold due to having no fur. Because of this you will frequently find them bundled up in blankets or a fresh load of laundry. These weird looking 'aliens' will find their way into your heart just as easily.
While there are so many positives to owning a cat of this breed there are some things that should be taken into consideration before making the commitment to purchase one. Because of their lack of fur to absorb their natural body oils the sphnx are slightly oily at times and can leave an brown oil residue behind on furniture. Because of this it is necessary to occassionaly give them a bath. Their lack of hair also causes them to have some allergy problems. Many will have watery eyes due to their lack of eyelashes. They also tend to have more ear wax then most cats and this will have to be cleaned regulary. Because of their lack of fur you never have to worry about shedding. While some believe that the sphynx are hypoallergenic due to their lack of fur it just is not true. They still produce the protein Fel d1 that some are allergic to. Before purchasing a sphynx make sure you are ready to accept the responsibililities and commitments they require.
