What is a Sphynx Cat?
A Sphynx cat is a breed of hairless cats that first appeared in 1966. They have no fur and their skin texture resembles that of chamois leather, which makes them very soft to the touch. The lack of fur has been achieved through breeding techniques, although they may have some sparse hairs on their bodies and tails. These cats are also known for their large ears, wedge-shaped heads, and prominent cheekbones. Originally from Canada but now found all over the world, these cats typically weigh between 8 and 10 pounds when fully grown.
Do Sphynx Cats Like Water?
The answer to this question depends on who you ask! Some owners will say yes while others think not so much. While it’s true that some Sphynx cats actually enjoy playing in water or even taking baths with their owners (some will even take showers!), most prefer not to get wet at all if they can help it. This could be due to the fact that since they don’t have any fur or an undercoat like other breeds do, getting wet can make them cold more quickly than other breeds would be affected by water exposure. Additionally, because there isn’t any fur for oils or dirt to stick too, bathing less frequently might make sense as compared with other breeds whose coats need regular maintenance and washing in order to stay healthy and clean looking.
In general though many sphinxes are curious about water but won’t necessarily want get wet themselves – instead playing around the edges of dish tubs or running away when sprayed with a light misting from the hose! So while not all sphinxes enjoy getting soaked in H20 – its fair to say most are happy enough exploring nearby pools without ever going near them themselves!
