Not everyone appreciates the unique beauty of hairless cats, but they can be every bit as adorable as your average fluffball.
Some cats are hairless because of a genetic mutation, but Sphynx cats are selectively bred to be free of hair (though their saliva still causes allergies). They have a huge following all over the world and plenty of people appreciate their lithe bodies, big ears and eyes, and suede-like skin (not to mention the fact that they don’t shed!).
If you’re not a fan of this particular breed, we’ve found 40 pictures of the cutest Sphynx cats on the Internet that just might change your mind.
1. They’re lovers
While the Sphynx can occassionally look grumpy, these cats are just as affectionate (if not more) than other breeds.
2. They are the cutest kittens
Ok, all kittens are cute, but look at this face!
We hope this sweet little girl has been adopted from her breeder in Australia. Look at those ears!
3. Elf, the Peach Fuzz Sphinx
This tiny Peach Fuzz Sphynx might have Gremlin ears, but they’re just about the cutest thing we’ve ever seen.
4. Baby Elf
If you thought Elf was cute at a few months old, check out this purr-fect baby at a few weeks.
5. Blue-eyed baby
Sphynx cats are known for their large eyes, but we just can’t get enough of this little’s ones electric blues.
6. The eyes have it
Speaking of blue eyes, check out the big ones on this little boy! And how cute are those paws?
7. Sometimes they look like puppies
Baby pug or baby Sphynx? If it weren’t for the coloring, it might be hard to tell sometimes!
8. Pippi the Blue
It’s no wonder the Sphynx requires extra bathing. Between those giant ears and all those wrinkles, a weekly bath is a must for this breed.
9. Sun worshippers
Like all cats, Sphynxs love the sun. But owners need to be careful since their lack of hair can make them more prone to skin cancer.
10. Baby blue
Their expressive faces make Sphynx cats extra photogenic. A good camera helps get those wrinkly little details as well, of course.
11. You’ll want to give them everything
Who could deny this face? Those ears? Those vaguely concerned forehead wrinkles? Yes, you can have all the treats!
12. Beautiful Bambino
This is a Bambino – a cross between a Sphynx and the Munchkin breed. They tend to have shorter legs and upright ears – as well as great accessories!
13. Soleil the Sphynx
Soleil’s Instagram page is just starting up, but we predict cat influencer status any minue.
14. Book worm
Sphynxs are just as mischevious as other cats, so watch out for your rare book collection!
15. They play dress-up
Cats aren’t usually good sports about playing dress-up, but many of the Sphynxs online have great wardrobes. Sophie the Sphynx has more clothing than most humans!
16. Alex, the Czech Sphynx
We’re head over heels for Alex and his sweet little mug. Doesn’t he look cozy in his furry blanket?
17. Remi the Snuggler
Is there anything cuter than a cozy kitten? We’re ready to cuddle up with Remi and his sweet little face.
Sphynxs are pretty social and tend to get along well with other animals. So maybe you need two!
19. Beauty queen
This cat’s owner has a great sense of humor. Her name? Scarlett Nohaira!
20. Insta Star
This Sphynx and its siblings have an Instagram following of over 25,000 fans – and we can see why! We scrolled through her photos for longer than we’d like to admit.
21. Not amused
Check out the coloring on this little kitten. While Sphynx cats don’t grow fur, their skin can have the same color patterns as other cats.
22. Snuggle bug
The Sphynxs body temperature is a few degrees higher than your average cat’s, but that doesn’t mean they don’t like a nice, warm blanet to curl up in.
23. DaVinci, the masterpiece
DaVinci is a little blue-eyed Canadian Sphynx with a big attitude. He doesn’t even care if you think he’s cute.
24. Style maven
When you don’t have fur to keep you warm, animal print is the next best thing, right?! We can’t get enough of this stylish Sphynx.
25. Pretty in pink
There’s a reason the cats in this Ukranian nursery have a 30k and growing Instagram audience – don’t you want to take this little ball of wrinkles home with you?
26. Is dinner ready?
This little guy is patiently waiting for dinner to be ready. We’d be happy to home cook this blue-eyed angel’s meals.
27. Curious critters
Sphynxs are known for being intelligent and curious. You can follow the adventures of brother and sister cats Cesare and Dalida on Instagram as they investigate the world.
28. Fuzzy friend
Not all Sphynxs remain hairless. In fact, many do grow some fuzz at some point.
