In fact, sphinxes are very interesting in their own way, therefore, choosing among many options, pay attention to the bald pet. But before buying such a cat, it is worth carefully familiarizing yourself with the features of this breed in order to prevent mistakes in grooming.
Very attached to people
Sphinxes are very similar to dogs in their behavior. They are also devoted to their masters and need love and affection. And if most thoroughbred cats prefer to spend a lot of time alone, then the sphinxes need constant contact with people. They love children very much, so they will not show aggression if they are too intrusive.
The lack of thick hair seriously affects the thermoregulation of sphinxes, whose body temperature is a couple of degrees higher than the cat's norm. In this regard, such cats need constant heat, and therefore find a place for themselves on warm batteries or in kitchen cabinets.
Need special clothes
Due to their physiology, hairless cats are uncomfortable at low temperatures. They can stay in the cold for some time, but prolonged exposure to uncomfortable conditions can be fatal. To prevent this from happening, the sphinxes need to be dressed in special clothes.
This cat breed is highly intelligent. Sphinxes are able to understand much of what the owner tells them. In addition, they like to run, jump, overcome obstacles and explore the surroundings, as they are very curious. Like dogs, these cats can learn to bring the ball, as they are interested in playing in the search for objects.
Sphinxes have an accelerated metabolism, and therefore they need to be fed more often than other cats. And if an ordinary pet is able to eat one serving of food, then they will need two. How many bald pet does not put food in a bowl, he will still ask for more.
Do not immediately get used to the tray
Unlike other purebred cats, sphinxes need about three weeks to master the tray. In this regard, they are not considered the most savvy animals. In this case, in no case should you use physical force when training such a cat, otherwise it will not fundamentally defecate in the filler. It is important for the sphinxes that the tray is always clean and spacious. This breed is also particularly picky about the type of filler, so the owner will have to spend some effort before you can choose the right option.
