The Sphynx cat is a breed of cat known for its lack of fur. It was developed through selective breeding starting in the 1960s. Although hairless cats have been reported throughout history, breeders in Europe have been working on the Sphynx breed since the early 1960s. Two different sets of hairless felines discovered in North America in the 1970s provided the foundation cats for what was shaped into the existing Sphynx breed.
