The Sphynx Cat is a very affectionate breed. According to the French standard, the Sphynx is part monkey, part dog, part child and part cat. The breed does seem to possess some of these personality traits, but despite their odd appearance they are completely cats.
If you have never had the opportunity to experience a Sphynx, you will find their personality is totally opposite from that of most domestic cats. By this I mean they want love and attention all the time, not just on their terms. They greet you at the door with tails wagging doggy style and demand to be in your presence. They are inquisitive and playful and want to be part of everything you do. They are funny, entertaining, and love all people and animals. They have the attitude of “I love everyone so everyone must love me.”
