Vetstreet.com: 5 Popular Breeds of Hairless Cats and Dogs

2 of 6

Sphynx

The Sphynx is the best known of the hairless cat breeds, and he was developed in the 1970s through crosses between hairless cats and Rex cats. The medium-size Sphynx has a suede-like coat, a wrinkled face and satellite-dish ears that give him the expression of a wise and kindly visitor from outer space. His skin comes in almost any color or pattern, including solid, pointed, tabby and tortoiseshell. (Be aware that grooming a Sphynx is a labor-intensive project that involves wiping his eyes daily and bathing his oily skin weekly to monthly to prevent clogged pores.) This smart and curious feline has a distinct sense of humor, and he'll do anything for attention. Expect him to bask in the sunniest spots of a room during the day and snuggle beneath the bedcovers at night.
