Happy Caturday: Sphynx Cat Edition

Not many people know this about me, but I have a rather strong obsession with hairless cats, aka Sphynx cats.

I know they’re ugly. Everyone knows that. But they’re also so ugly that they’re actually kinda cute. (At least to me.) I can’t look at a Sphynx cat and not laugh. I mean, LOOK at them. You can see every wrinkle, every fold, and every flaw on their bodies. In a way, they’re the ultimate awkward phase in the cat world.

Their bodies still secrete the oil that triggers allergies, and because that oil doesn’t have hair to absorb it, they have to be bathed about once a week to make sure their pores don’t get clogged. (Oh my God, oh my God, a cat that you HAVE to give a bath to. It’s kind of awesome, right? Just me? OK.)

Plus, because they don’t have hair and tend to get cold, they actually do adapt well to sweaters. Which means you don’t need to have a dog to buy cute animal outfits for, you can just get a hairless cat!

Did I mention how insanely funny they look when they get a little pot belly going? By the way, if all of this was too much for you to handle, then definitely don’t google Sphynx kittens… or do… there’s just a lot of tiny wrinkles.

  1. I’m glad I’m not alone in this. I desperately want one of these cats. The only selling point for the BF is the bath thing, though. For some reason, he’s dying to give our cats a bath…

    • haha! Eoghan is the opposite, he thinks they’re cool, minus the bath part. But seriously, look up videos of them bathing on Youtube… it will change your life.
