We Sphynx are FREE of hair (except on the bridge of our noses!), FREE of hairballs, and FREE of whiskers! However, we are not maintenance-free! We require weekly baths (we groom ourselves like other cats, but the oil that our skin secretes builds up, since we have no fur for the oil to distribute itself through), we need weekly ear cleanings (we have no fur in our ears to absorb the oils and wax), weekly claw trimmings (our claws grow quickly due to our fast Sphynx metabolism that helps keep us warm) and frequent eye cleanings, since we have no eyelashes or eyebrows to protect our eyes.
P.S. It's not nice to call us scary. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. We may not look like "regular" cats, but we are loving, caring, and our humans think we are handsome, adorable and cute! And everyone who meets us in person agrees - we are charming and adorable kitties!
