Sphynx Cat




The naked cat, as it is called, has done much to talk about himself, when he appeared for the first time at an exhibition in 1984 and the Italian feline cat a little intimidated and trembling broke the "floor" in two, since first time: on one hand those who loved him, the other by those who rejected it. You can still remember that event as a real earthquake, because then the race was not yet recognized by any association. And 'in the thirties, however, you start to get news of the birth of ipotrichidi ie, hairless. In fact in 1936, in Wilmington, North Carolina, in a litter of four kittens are born with two kittens hairless tail and pussy completely naked. In 1938, in Paris, instead, to quote one Professor Létard puppies naked with a pair of Siamese. But since 1964, which opens the chapter's official history of the Sphynx, and everything, it happens in Canada. The official recognition for the breed had in 1983. The Sphynx after the council, which was held in spring 2001 in Albufeira in Portugal has also been recognized by FIFe (the European Federation Feline).
