People love kittens because they are little and fluffy – but what’s hiding underneath all that fur? This adorable collection of hairless Sphynx kittens prove that these creatures can be just as cute, if not slightly odd looking, without a luxurious mane.
The Sphynx breed, despite its lack of a winter coat, originates from the great white north of Canada. In the mid-1960s, a cat in Ontario gave birth to a hairless kitten, as the result of a natural genetic mutation. Following this anomaly was the birth of two separate sets of hairless kittens in the mid-1970s in Toronto and Minnesota. Through careful breeding, the Sphynx cat evolved into the unique animal you see today. Sphynxs come in a variety of colors and patterns and are technically not as “naked” as they appear. If you look close enough you’ll see they are covered with a thin layer of fuzz. Scroll down below to check out some photos of these regal cats and don’t forget to upvote your favs!
