I'm rare! Yep, Sphynx are still a rare breed, especially here in Germany. Up until recently, the German Protection of Animals Act prohibited the breeding of animals that were considered to be "deformed" and they considered breeds such as the Sphynx, Manx and Scottish Fold to be "deformed", just because we don't look like other cats! Which is absolutely ridiculous. We are not "deformed", we are the result of a naturally occurring genetic mutation. In Sphynx, hairlessness results from a mutation of the same gene that produces the curly hair in Devon Rex cats.
So Sphynx remain rare, especially here in Germany.
