Hairless cats are an unusual type of pet, to say the least. The sphynx cat is one breed of hairless cat. These large eared, wrinkled cats have a soft fuzz around the face, ears, and tails. The rest of their bodies are coated with smooth skin. This skin can be in a variety of pigments or even spotted, and is said to feel like a suede covered hot water bottle.
