Personality

"What is it?  A monkey, dog, gremlin?"  
"How can I even pet it?  Do I poke it? Pat it? Will I hurt it?"
Upon first touch of a lovely naked Sphynx cat, jaws drops and hearts melt.

The soft, warm feeling of a Sphynx ignites a deep comforting, loving, almost sensual emotion. The comical and intelligent personality of a Sphynx keeps their observers intrigued while laughing and smiling. The loving and affectionate nature of a Sphynx entices those who love them to snuggle and never get up. To put it simply, touching Sphynx make people happy.

  Sphynx cats are:

  • Loving companions for people who live alone
  • Gentle, loving first pets for young children
  • A fun addition to a large family who loves animals
  • Great therapy pets
  • Super cool, funky, quirky animals for hipsters
  • Generally easy to travel with for people who like to take their animals everywhere with them

Sphynx cats are not only easy to touch, smooch and love on.. the are extremely unique in looks and personality. Sphynx are very curious and affectionate and will head butt their way into your heart.


  The cool things about Sphynx are that they are:

  • Very social; they enjoy any warm sentient being - people, other animals, babies.
  • Super snugglers; and will try to keep you in bed with them all day.
  • Curious and playful; they love to play with toys, shadows, tails.
  • Highly intelligent & mischievous; lock your cupboards and hide your cash.
  • Devoted and loyal; and you need to prove your loyalty as well.
  • Quirky and goofy; waste hours upon hours just staring in amazement.
  • Are acrobatic; they love jumping, flipping and being in high places.
  • Insatiable sun bathers.

  Some of the "other" things about Sphynx are:

  • Extremely addictive so be prepared.. you will want more.
  • Very nosy and want to constantly be involved in your activities.
  • Bed hogs and will insist on sleeping with you, under your blankets.
  • Joyfully people-oriented, but they may not enjoy being left alone for long periods of time.
  • Hairless, so they can become chilled in cold weather and require wardrobes :)
  • Naked and produce body oils which require regularly cleaning.
  • Little piggies and eat more than other cats and should have a high protein diet.
  • Prone to HCM and should have annual heart screenings to watch for this genetic heart disease.
 

There are three basic personality factors in cats: The kind who run up when you say hello and rub against you in cheap romance; the kind who run away certain that you mean to ravish them; and the kind who just look back and don't move a muscle. I love all three kinds.
