Grooming and Care - It is not very hard to keep Sphynxs well, but their maintenance is rather unlike to other cats. Sphynxs sweat, their skin secrets oils to nourish the non-existent coat, so they need daily wiping with cloth and frequent bathing. But bathing is not a problem - Sphynxs don't mind it and it very easy to dry them. The ears need to be cleaned weekly.

Best Suitable Environment - It would be better to keep them out of draught. Of course, Sphynxs are not supposed to be kept outdoor. Besides temperature extreme, sunbeams are also hazardous for their naked skin.

Personality Traits - The personality traits of a Sphynx is very outgoing and caring about their family, but also vain enough to primp themselves regularly. They love to be held and show affection and can be demanding at times.
