Those are the hairless cats,yes? Could be useful if you didn't want the cat shedding all over the house..My cat has this big feather duster of a tail,I don't think I'd change him for one with no fur..I like how He comes in all fluffed out when it's cold outside!

What's so ugly about them? I don't think they're ugly at all. Just because they're different because they're hairless doesn't make them ugly! I love any animal regardless of what it is so of course I'm going to say they're beautiful. Besides, it's to each his own taste. Don't worry what anybody else thinks. If you want one, then by all means, get one! I know I would if I wanted one but right now I have two siamese one balenese and 6 mixed breed cats and I also have two german shepherds and one chihuahua and two chihuahua mixs. lol

I totally agree and,i have never been one to do the same thing as everybody else so,i like they are a little different.Only concern i have is they can leave a greasy spot where they lay down because they have no hair to absorb oil.

I personally wouldnt want a sphynx because I love my soft fuzzy little babies however I wouldnt refuse to take care of one based on their appearance. If you want one, I think thats great and I bet they are really sweet pets.

Bawb - Bawb lost most his hair due to malunutitian, it grew back.
I think they are kind of funny looking, but not in a bad way. I do know that you have to be careful they don't get chills and stuff, you have to keep them warm in the winter. Considering how mine like to have things on (NOT) I can't immagine how you keep little kitty sweaters on them. I love my cats, from my extra fluffy Rio to the oh so sleek Rygel. And ugly isn't bad, ugly can be cute too....

I do not have one of these cats - but I do find them oddly attractive. so exotic looking, I imagine they cost a pretty penny from the breeders.

Awww, how can anyone say they are ugly? They are so cute. Hairless but cute, skin as wrinkly as a baby elephant LOL. I've never seen one in real life, only on TV. But I have seen a hairless terrier locally.

They are not that attractive, but its only because its something that we are not used to seeing. I wouldnt own one though because I like other breeds of cats.

I do not have one and from the pictures I have seen of them they are so ugly looking its frightening. no hair and all skin. there are so many other breeds that are so much more attractive I would not want a sphynx cat at all.that only my opinion.
