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.
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.
