What are Sphynx Cats like?

Sphynx cats are known for their unique appearance, with a hairless body that feels like suede to the touch. These cats are typically medium to large in size, weighing between 6-12 pounds and measuring up to 15 inches in height. Despite their lack of fur, they are still considered to be a warm and affectionate breed, often seeking out human contact and attention.

Sphynx cats are highly intelligent and curious, with a playful and mischievous nature. They are also known for being very social and outgoing, enjoying the company of both humans and other pets. When considering a Sphynx for your family, it’s important to note that they don’t like to be left alone for long periods of time and thrive on attention and interaction. These cats come in a variety of colors and patterns, including white, black, blue, red, and cream, among others.

FAQs when considering Sphynx Cats

How much do Sphynx Cats cost in New Mexico?

As a sought-after breed, Sphynx Cats for sale in New Mexico cost between $1,500 and $4,000. A cat’s price is based on its pedigree, coat quality, age, health and vaccination history. If an Sphynx Cat’s parents are show-winning, they can be even more expensive.

Do Sphynx cats require special care?

While Sphynx cats do not have fur, they still require regular grooming to maintain good skin health. Because they lack fur, their skin is more exposed and vulnerable to environmental factors, so it’s important to regularly clean and moisturize their skin to prevent irritation or infections. Sphynx cats may also require regular ear cleaning to prevent wax buildup, and it’s important to provide them with a warm and comfortable environment as they may be more sensitive to cold temperatures. Additionally, Sphynx cats may require more frequent bathing than other breeds, as they do not have fur to absorb natural oils and may become greasy or dirty more quickly.

What should I ask to choose the right Sphynx Cat breeder?

While there are many people in New Mexico who claim to be ethical Sphynx Cat breeders, not all hold a standard that you can feel great about. Asking some relevant questions about their philosophy will ensure you avoid Sphynx Cat breeders that do this only for financial gain, not having the interests of the cats or you in mind. Make sure you ask about:

  • Health history of the parents and vaccinations. They should have their first vaccinations by the time they're adopted.
  • Whether they've bred their Sphynx Cats with other breeds (they should disclose this and it would make it not a purebred lien.
  • Have the socialized the kitten among other kittens?
  • Do they belong to a New Mexico Sphynx Cat breed club? You can ask for references from the club.

Why does it matter if I buy from a registered Sphynx Cat breeder?

When you buy from a registered Sphynx Cat breeder (with either their local Sphynx Cat club, governing body, or TICA/CFA), that ensures that a standard of care and expertise is enforced. You can ask them about a wide range of topics such as the Sphynx Cat’s genealogy, the right kitten for you, common health problems with Sphynx Cats to look out for.

I have had two interests since I was very young… the Internet and cats. I grew up with two lovely cats in my family, Midnight and Chloe. But when I started looking for a cat as an adult, I realized how few reliable resources there are for finding ethical breeders. So I combined my Internet skills and cat knowledge to create Cat Kingpin, the #1 resource for cat breeders online. Have a question or suggestion for my list? You can reach me here.
