    An acquired taste indeed, but really, it isn't that ugly at all. In my opinion, I think it looks rather cute with its little scarf.

    I have an 8 year old Sphynx named Yoda. Best cat in the world.
    All purr, no fur.

    I'd love to have that cat.

    The saddest thing about this story is that is passed as newsworthy.

    Dunno, he looks more like the Brain than Yoda :D

    I'm sorry, but I'm not sure if I would like to own a cat that looks like a saggy scrotum.

    I like my cats with a bit of hair.





    EDIT: No need. I'll do it for you.

    Yoda, my cat, is completely bald, with fine, short fur on the bridge of his nose and subtle peach-fuzz along his back. But otherwise he's completely naked, including his long tail.

    My wife calls him the "kitty-rat." He does sometimes freak out our guests a little, though.

    Since cats have a higher body temperature than humans, when you touch him he feels like warm suede. And since he gets cold easily, he loves to just sit in my lap. And yes, occasionally on very cold winter nights I will put a little cat sweater on him, but he prefers to just burrow himself under the blankets in my daughter's room.

    He's an extraordinarily good natured cat. Very talkative and communicative. I guess that's typical for the breed.

    And if we ever get a second one, I'll name him "Smeagol."

    I've nearly vomited at every cat in this thread. But since sphynxes have no fur, does this mean they are hypoallergenic?

    No. They still have nasty saliva and some have skin conditions.

    You can however get a designer cat in California, for about 5 grand.

    Sort of.

    Their saliva still carries the allergen that affects most who are allergic to cats, but since they have no hair, they don't have anything to shed and spread around the house.

    My father is allergic to cats, and as long as he doesn't pet our cat or for some reason put his face where the cat sleeps when he comes to visit, he doesn't have any allergy problem in our house. Can't say this is true for all persons with cat allergies, but my father does fine. Now I don't know what would happen if he spent more than a week with us, but he's been ok for up to 6 days (so far his longest contiguous visit).
