The Sphynx cat is a breed of cat known for its lack of coat (fur). The Sphynx was developed through selective breeding, starting in the 1960s. The skin should have the texture of chamois, as it has fine hairs. Whiskers may be present, either whole or broken, or may be totally absent. 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 Sphynx 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.

Are hairless cats good pets?
Sphynx may be hairless, but they are not hypoallergenic because they still produce dander, dead skin cells. There is no scientific evidence that any breed or cross breed is more or less allergenic than any other cat. Instead of fur, the Sphynx wears a suede-like coat that makes him warm and soft to the touch.
Do Sphynx cats have a lot of health problems?
While the Sphynx is a relatively healthy breed, there are some breed-specific health issues to know about: Respiratory issues in kittens due to lack of hair. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a form of heart disease. Hereditary myopathy, affecting muscle function.
