● Improved energy

● Better digestion
Like other cats, sphynxes are obligate carnivores. This means that they evolved to receive their nutrients from meat. Yet traditional cat foods use very little meat which is poor quality and cooked at high temperatures to last on a shelf for months, or even years. This needs to change. At KatKin, we produce fresh cat food. Formulated by vets and using premium ingredients - simply 100% fresh-cooked human-grade meat. KatKin never compromises on giving cats the very best.

Sphynx cats are considered hypoallergenic. In fact, they are thought to be one of the first cats associated with this quality thanks to their hairlessness. However, no cat breed is 100% hypoallergenic. Even sphynx cats produce Fel D1 which is the main allergen for people. Since sphynx cats do not shed their fur, the allergen stays on their skin and in their saliva.
Sphynxes are amongst the most friendly and affectionate cat breeds. This makes them excellent pets for cat parents with lots of love to give. Sphynx cats love attention and can even fetch toys. Generally, sphynxes get on well with children who share their curiosity and playfulness.
No, despite popular belief, sphynx cats are not Egyptian. Often this mistaken association is made because they share a similar name to the mythical Sphinx of ancient Egypt. However, sphynx cats actually originate from Canada.
Sphynx cats love to cuddle and will take every opportunity to jump into your lap! In fact, they are sometimes nicknamed the ‘velcro lap cat’ because of how much they love to stick to you!
