This friendly, outgoing kitty with beautiful green eyes will melt your heart and warm your cold nights. This 'hairless' kitty feels like velvet when you pet his very warm, peach fuzz skin. Sphynxes are known for their extroverted behavior and are intelligent, curious and affectionate. The Journal of Veterinary Behavior ranked Sphynxes as the most affectionate cat breed. They are known as one of the more dog-like breeds of cats, and Rufus is no exception. He greets you at the door and talks to you in coos, meows, and chirps. He is incredibly loving, calls 'Ma Ma' and wants to be someone's cuddle buddy. He gets along well with gentle children, other cats but is not fond of large dogs. Rufus requires lots of interaction or becomes lonely. Caution, Sphinxes are very high maintenance cats that need lots of companionship and regular grooming. This breed requires bathing at least once a week, ear care, nail trims and must be kept warm. Without protective hair, they must avoid sun exposure and require more food than the furry cat breeds. For these reasons, we will only be accepting applications from vet confirmed, Sphinx experienced owners. Purr Partners does not ship kitties, so you must be willing to travel to North Carolina to adopt Rufus. If you meet these requirements, this playful, social, loveable kitty could be your new 'hairless' family member.
