They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And that saying has never been more true than when you are looking at these hairless sphynxs. Their beauty isn’t conventional, but that’s okay. They are loved by their owners just as much as any other cat. However, there is one difference between these sphynxs and other cats–a sphynx will never make a great model. Check out these 40 images to see exactly what I mean.
1. Love me.
Everyone has their own way of asking for affection. And oftentimes, it’s through a seductive pose or looks. This cat may need to work on his a bit more, but with a little practice, I’m sure he’ll be raking in the ear scratches in no time.
2. Towel cuddles.
This cat seems to love his towel. And I imagine it’s because it feels like he has fur for the first time in his life. But having no fur does have it’s an upside, you get to take a bath and dry off almost immediately.
3. Say cheese.
The best photos are the candid ones. There’s nothing worse that a picture full of forced smile and poses. This cat has a great candid smile and I’m glad that it was caught on camera.
4. That tooth.
So far, this is my favorite cat. I dig the underbite that it’s got going on. It gives off that “I don’t care what you think” vibe.
This cat ended up with fur on her face but nowhere else. And if you ask me, that’s the best of both worlds. She gets all of the ear scratches that a furry cat receives as well as enjoys a nice cool breeze on her bare body.
6. Leg munch.
Furry or not, cats always look funny when they are cleaning their legs. This is the first time that I’ve seen a hairless cat doing it and I can’t help but see a comparison between that cat’s leg and a chicken leg. And if I didn’t know any better, I’d say that this cat had the same idea.
This cat’s wrinkles make him look extra intelligent. It looks like his brain has grown so big that’s now on the outside of his head. I wonder what he’s thinking?
8. Belly time.
This cat is begging for a belly rub. I’d be cautious though, hairless or not, most cats like to protect their belly. This cat is cute enough for me to give it a try though.
9. What have I done?
This poor guy seems to be struggling with something. It’s almost like he’s asking himself, “What have I allowed these paws of mine to do?” Don’t worry bud, I’m sure it wasn’t that bad.
10. Weird and proud.
Sometimes, you’ve just got to own the things that make you unique. Because once you own them, no one can use them against you. This cat knows what I’m talking about.
11. Not a morning cat.
Some of us don’t do well in the mornings. Lucky for him, he’s just a cat–so he probably doesn’t have much to do today. Just go back to bed and start your day over again, buddy.
12. My human.
I’ve known pets to get very possessive of their owners. But this cat has taken it to the next level. He’s all yours, kitty.
13. So what?
It’s important to stop caring about what people think of you. And it looks like this cat has done just that. Way to go, cat. You do you.
14. Don’t touch my string.
I can’t tell if this cat is challenging me to touch his string or not. Either way, I’m not getting anywhere near this intimidating feline. You can have your string, cat.
15. Sup world?
Some people aren’t ashamed to be brash and bold. And apparently, some cats feel the same way. I don’t think anything would bother this cat.
16. I have a question.
For all of the questions that I’ve asked in class, I’ve never raised my foot in order to get my teacher’s attention. I can’t tell if this method is easier for the cat (or if he’s just a little strange) but if I was that teacher I’d make sure to call on him.
17. Tasty tail.
I’ve always wanted a tail. I think it would be cool to swing from it, grab things with it, and even swat a thing or two. But this cat has taken tail activities to a place that I never thought of before.
18. Leave me alone!
No one likes to be bothered when they are busy. I’m not sure what’s got this cat so upset, but I’m glad that I’m not the one interrupting him.
19. Working on my tan.
Some cats just have no shame. They let it all hang out and have no problem letting the world see what they’ve got. I think we could learn a thing or two from this guy, here.
20. Scoot over.
We all know a bed-hog. They insist on scooting all the way over to your side but also using up all of the blankets. I’ll tell you what cat, the blankets are all yours.
21. The claw.
There’s nothing like a creepy little claw on your foot in the morning. Even though it looks like something out of a scary movie, it’s actually kind of sweet. Plus, I’d feel good knowing that the owner of this claw loved me and wasn’t trying to hurt me.
22. Join me on the dark side.
You know what? Okay. I’ll join you. But mostly because I’m too terrified to say no.
24. The claw #2.
This claw is slightly more terrifying that the last but the sentiment is probably the same. I’ll love you as long as you love me, alright cat?
25. Butt-head, literally.
Check out the human face on the dark part of this cat’s backside. This very well may be where the term butt-head came from. I wonder if it can talk?
26. I’m cold.
Oh I’ve been there, cat. It’s rough waking up on those mornings that are so cold all you can do is crouch by the heater. Just stay there bud, it’ll get warmer.
27. Surprise, I’m a bat.
Apparently, cats like to play dress-up, too. Although, this cat didn’t even have to change its clothes to become something else. It just took a quick lift of the arms and he was ready for the costume party.
27. Kung-fu cat.
Nice form, cat. I’m no kung-fu expert but I’d say that he’s doing a pretty good job. I wouldn’t want to fight him.
You know, I actually like this guy. He seems comfortable with who he is, what he’s doing, and how people perceive him. That’s a lot more than most of us can say.
29. I can’t get comfortable in this thing.
Have you ever tried to lay on a bed that you just couldn’t get comfortable on? I have, and apparently this cat has, too. Keep trying, cat, you’ll find the spot eventually.
Just when you thought sphynxs couldn’t get any more freaky, they do something like this. I’m sure she’s a nice cat, but that lighting makes her look a little bit like something out of a horror film. I’m going to have to sleep with the lights on tonight.
31. Go ahead, try me.
Nope. You win. I’ll do whatever you want me to do.
32. Shadow cat.
I cant tell if he’s trying to look cute or intimidating. I’m getting a little intimidated personally, but I’m sure he’s nothing but a lover.
33. Shadow cat #2
If one of these sphynxs was ever going to make it as a model, they should stay away from the dark lighting. I doesn’t really highlight their positive features. I mostly just makes them look scary.
34. Lover cat.
This cat just wants some love. Lucky for her, she seems to have a very loving owner. If there was audio, I would expect to here some rumbling “purs” right about now.
35. You’re kidding me.
I think that this cat just looked into a mirror for the first time. The poor guy thought that he was as furry as the rest of the cats on the block. Tough luck, kid.
36. I hate birthdays.
I can relate to this guy. I’m not a huge fan of celebrating my birthday, either. And I deifinitely wouldn’t want to wear a hat like that.
37. I’m feeling extra wrinkly today.
Do you ever have those days where your wrinkles seem to show up more than usual? I’m not quite to that age yet, but I think that this cat has dealt with that feeling for way too many years now.
38. Tell me I’m beautiful.
Sometimes even your favorite jacket can’t hide the fact that you’re not having a great day. It was worth a try though, cat. Keep rockin’ the colors.
39. You think this is funny?
There is something a little funny about a cat that is wrapped up in a hotdog costume. But I wouldn’t tell this guy that. He looks ready to claw some eyes out.
40. Give me cuddles.
He may not look like that most cuddly of cats, but I imagine that he enjoys those cuddle all the same. And you know what? We all deserve some cuddles from time to time.
