Sphynx Cats & Kittens for Sale

Sphynx cats are among the most famous cat breeds worldwide, standing out for their hairless wrinkly skin, wedge-shaped heads, and large ears. However, there is so much more to this unique breed than its distinct appearance. Sphynxes are the extroverts of the feline world, and their high intelligence allows them to create deep loving bonds with their owners.

Sphynxes are named after the legendary Egyptian sphinx for their regal appearance and graceful nature. However, the cat breed does not originate from Egypt but instead from Canada. The first hairless Sphynx was born here in the 1960s. Therefore, Sphynxes are one of the newest breeds and one of the most sought after.

Meet the Sphynx

So, what makes the Sphynx cat hairless? It's due to a mutation in the gene responsible for hair growth. This genetic mutation can occur in cats naturally. However, it occurs in all Sphynx cats because they are bred selectively for this trait.

As Sphynxes do not have fur, many people assume they will be low maintenance in the grooming department. However, the truth is quite the opposite. Cat fur is a brilliant absorbent for body oils, which is why no furry cats get oily skin.

However, there is no hair to soak up the oil on a Sphynx. Therefore, Sphynxes need to be bathed once or twice a week to keep these oils under control. Furthermore, with no hair in their ears, this body part needs to be cleaned regularly too.

The Sphynx’s hairless body is also much more susceptible to the elements. Like humans, they can develop sunburn and skin damage. Plus, they cannot conserve their body heat in cold temperatures as well as other breeds.

Sphynxes have a very muscular body, and the absence of fur reveals well-defined muscles and prominent cheekbones. They are barrel-chested and usually have a rounded abdomen that gives a potbelly appearance. In addition, they have thick paw pads with webbed toes and a whiplike tail.

Their heads are pretty peculiar, too, with the most prominent feature being their extra-large ears. In addition, their head is long and narrow, their lemon-shaped eyes are big and deep-set, and they have no whiskers or eyelashes.

The temperament of a Sphynx

If it's not the unique appearance that attracts cat lovers to this breed, it's their outgoing and mischievous personality. Sphynxes are a high-energy breed and quite the show-offs. They are very smart, so they need multiple play times a day and challenging games and toys.

Sphynxes love to be the life of the party and will be the first family member to greet your guests. Their people-loving temperament makes them one of the most dog-like cat breeds. They crave human attention and will follow you around the house. In addition, they are very curious kitties, so they like to be involved in what their humans are up to and explore every new box and item that comes into the house.

They love to climb and jump and are quite the acrobats, so they need many high places to access and cat trees to climb. However, despite their high energy, Sphynxes have a cuddly side too. When they are sleepy, they will seek out their owner to cuddle up with rather than find a quiet place to sleep on their own. Lastly, they are a vocal breed and will chat with you often, especially whenever you return home.

10 Reasons to add a Sphynx to your family

  1. They are super funny - Your Sphynx will make you laugh from dust to dawn with its crazy antics, goofy expressions and incredible sense of humour.
  2. They will entertain your guests - Sphynxes loves to meet new people, and they will happily entertain them with their goofy behaviour and impressive tricks.
  3. They are strong and healthy - Sphynxes are hardy cats that rarely get sick and have no genetic disease predispositions.
  4. They don't shred - One of the best things about choosing a hairless breed is having a fur-free home!
  5. They are super smart - These clever cats are not only easy to train, but their curious minds love to learn new tricks and skills, too.
  6. They get along with everyone - Sphynxes are not picky when it comes to attention. They get along with children, dogs, and other cats alike.
  7. They are not easily scared - Unlike some breeds, a Sphynx is not easily startled or frightened. Their confidence and self-assurance is nothing less than impressive!
  8. They love cuddles - Their need for companionship means they will often jump on your lap. And who doesn't want a cat to snuggle with on the sofa?
  9. They are truly unique - There is no denying that Sphynx cats are a special breed. So, if you like to be different yourself, a Spynx will be the perfect companion for you.
  10. You will have a friend for life - If anyone thinks cats can be aloof, they have clearly never met a Sphynx. The Sphynx's loyalty and devotion could rival a Labrador's, so know that getting a Sphynx kitten means getting a new life-long best friend.

Best homes for a Sphynx

Like dogs, a Sphynx does not do well left alone. Therefore, the best home for this devoted kitty is one where someone will be present most of the time. For example, if you work from home or are a stay at home parent, a Sphynx will do well with you.

Sphynxes prefer to be in busy homes and with other animals. In fact, the more people and pets, the better. If you don't have any other pets, consider getting two Sphynx kittens together. This will do wonders for their happiness and development.

Moreover, when considering bringing a Sphynx into the home, be sure that you will have enough time for one. As well as having high social needs, the Sphynx cat needs more grooming than other breeds. Therefore, you need to develop and stick to a regular bathing and grooming schedule to keep them in top tip condition.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sphynx Kittens

Why should I choose a Sphynx kitten from The Pedigree Paws rather than elsewhere?
The Pedigree Paws work with the very best licensed Sphynx breeders from the UK and Europe. This guarantees that your Sphynx kitten will be healthy, well cared for and socialised. Although kitten mills are now illegal in Great Britain, some unlicensed breeders still manage to breed animals in an unethical way. However, our company’s mission is to help in the fight against illegal pet farms, so we choose to support only moral breeders. Furthermore, we take measures to ensure each breeder treats every kitten as their own pet and takes the best care of their health.
Is a Sphynx the right kitten for me?
Sphynxes are one of the most active, confident, and outgoing cat breeds, and they love to be around people all the time. It’s important to know that Sphynxes can not be left alone for long periods. Not having enough social interaction can be damaging to their well-being. Therefore, they thrive in busy family homes and are great with kids and other pets. However, they do have high social needs and grooming needs. A Sphynx will make the ideal kitten for you if you have the time and are willing to meet your kitten’s needs. As high-energy cats, they do best with humans who match their energy and personality.
Is The Pedigree Paws trustworthy?
We know that it’s not always easy to know who to trust in the pet breeding industry, which can make the process of choosing a pet challenging. However, as a fully transparent company, we strive to build the utmost certitude with our clients, which has led to hundreds of happy customers and felines. Feel free to check out some of our wonderful reviews to see our success stories for yourself. Before allowing them to advertise their kittens, we ensure all our breeders are licensed and ethical. This is just one reason that choosing The Pedigree Paws to assist you in getting a Sphynx kitten is much more trustworthy than looking for a breeder privately.
Are the Sphynx kittens from The Pedigree Paws healthy?
Yes, we only work with Sphynx breeders who follow strict health protocols, such as ensuring that every kitten has a thorough health check. Moreover, both parents of the kittens will have had DNA checks.. This ensures your new baby Sphynx does not have any genetic mutations and is 100% purebred. Before receiving your Sphynx kitten, they will be dewormed, microchipped, and have all their vaccinations.
When can I receive my new Sphynx kitten?
Sphynx kittens, like all breeds, can experience development and behavioural problems if they are weaned or taken from their mum too early. So, although we understand you would like your new kitten as soon as possible, it is much better for their health and wellbeing if they stay with their mother for at least 8 weeks, but preferably 10-13 weeks. That being said, each breeder sets their own timescales within this range, so this duration varies from breeder to breeder.
Can I see the parents of a Sphynx kitten before purchase?
Absolutely! When buying a Sphynx kitten, it’s always good to see its parents and check that they look in good health. Seeing the parents for yourself will assure you that your new Sphynx kitten will be healthy and free from genetic health issues. As a fully transparent and trustworthy company, we will arrange video calls between each customer and the breeder to see the kitten and parents before sale.
Will I receive the pedigree documents of my new Sphynx kitten?
Yes, all our Sphynx kittens come with internationally recognised pedigree documents such as GCCF, FIFe and TICA. The registration will depend on the breeder’s location, with most Sphynx kittens in the UK registered under GCCF.
Do these Sphynx kittens come from good breeders?
Our Sphynx kittens come from the very best breeders in the industry that adhere to strict animal welfare regulations as set out by the top international organisations. We also follow a comprehensive breeder selection process ourselves to choose the most ethical and passionate breeders around. For example, all breeders on our site treat their animals like family members rather than a product to sell. Therefore, you can rest assured that your new Sphynx kitten will grow into a confident, intelligent, and loyal companion.
Are these Sphynx kittens raised in a family home or breeding facility?
Firstly, we would never work with commercial breeding facilities. Aside from the main priority of breeding facilities being to make money, this environment is more likely to be unclean. Plus, the kittens do not get the individual care and attention needed, potentially leading to poor health, well-being, and development. We only work with breeders who raise the kittens in a clean and loving family home environment with their parents and siblings. From our experience, we see many benefits of raising kittens in a family environment. Not only are they well cared for, but they are well socialised too. Thus, they will come to you as a happy, confident baby Sphynx and quickly adapt to their new home.
How can I help settle my Sphynx kitten into their new home?
Luckily, you’re choosing one of the most confident and adaptable cat breeds. Sphynxes are less likely to feel scared and anxious when changing homes than other breeds and generally take things in their stride. However, it’s important to remember that every kitten is different, no matter the breed. So you can help to make the change as stress-free as possible by asking the breeder to send the kitten to you with a towel containing their mother’s scent. The scent of their mother will keep them calm and prevent them from getting stressed. Then when they arrive, confine them to one room for a day or two before letting them explore the rest of the house.
