Three hairless Sphynx kittens. - Image source: Shutterstock / Jarda Schuler This Sphynx is obviously not very enthusiastic about a trip into the countryside. - Image source: Shutterstock / Tanee The Sphynx cat should only be allowed outside in warm weather, otherwise it will freeze too easily. In summer, the sensitive cat has to be creamed against sunburn. - Image source: Shutterstock / Tanee Some Sphynx cats are not completely hairless, but have very short fur. The big eyes and ears are typical of the breed. - Image source: Shutterstock / Juice Team's All cats have loose, wrinkled skin that allows them the greatest possible freedom of movement.

    krowas: That is flawed. A good breed should breed them completely hairless. Then feel very pleasant like warm candle wax and are NOT sensitive! Report abuse

    krowas: Too bad to read everything here. They are not sensitive at all, mine rave even in the snow. They are the dearest of the cat breeds, never want to do without them again! Report abuse
