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

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.
