Pet Information: The Sphynx Cat

Sphynx cat

The first Sphynx cat to arrive in the UK was in 1988. Her name was Tulip and she lived to the age of 15, she was a pioneer towards getting full recognition for the breed in Britain.

The name Sphynx was inspired by the gigantic limestone sculpture in the Egyptian desert due to its smooth appearance.

The hairless Sphynx loves attention, which is just as well because  they tend to draw interest where ever they go. They are highly intelligent and affectionate. Primarily an indoor cat due to their lack of fur, they are sensitive to excessive sun and can struggle to keep warm in the winter months.

Life expectancy: 8-14 years
Originating country: Canada
Temperament: Affectionate, friendly, curious and energetic
Interesting fact: despite not having fur, the Sphynx actually requires regular grooming!
