do-you-really-want-a-cat-but-are-you-afraid-of-the-hair-that-these-animals-leave-all-over-the-house-meet-the-sphynx-50-pictures

Do you really want a cat, but are you afraid of the hair that these animals leave all over the house? No matter how cute they are, it's as if you don't feel like vacuuming every day… If you don't know which cat breed to choose, find out that the Sphinx cat would be best for you. Here's everything you need to know about the hairless cat!


1.


Rare are the animals that do not have fur, and the Sphinx cat may seem, from this point of view, a little strange of nature. Unfortunately, many consider it even ugly. But, contrary to many people's beliefs, the Sphinx is one of the most intelligent, friendly and loving pets. And the history of this race, so unusual, is more than interesting.


2.


As it turns out, you'd say the Sphinx was born from failed lab experiments. In reality, these genetic mutations that are caused by the lack of hair appeared spontaneously and naturally, without man intervening in any way.


3.


The oldest information about the existence of the naked cat dates back to the pre-Columbian period, when several specimens were discovered in Mexico. Other specimens then appear in Europe, Australia and America, in different places and at different times. In 1938, two furless cats were born in Paris to a Siamese couple. In 1950, another Siamese cat gave birth to several chicks, three of which were without fur. In 1966, in Ontario, Canada, an ordinary cat gave birth to a naked kitten.


4.


Also in Ontario, around the same time, another furless cat was found wandering the streets, and two other cats were found and rescued from the streets of Toronto. It seems that these two specimens were sent to the Netherlands and contributed decisively to the creation of the current Sphinx breed. Other specimens appeared in the early 1970s on a Minnesota farm. Here, farmers have noticed several generations of hairless kittens. It seems that one of them lived for 19 years.


5.


Because they do not have fur, but only a very fine and delicate down that covers their skin, Sphinx cats can suffer sunburn like humans. Thus, it is mandatory that when they are taken out they should be protected with sunscreen cream, specially created for animals. On the other hand, in winter, even if they stay at home, hairless cats should be dressed in soft, fluffy clothes to keep them warm.


6.


Although at first glance they look quite scary (as if they were little aliens) Sphinx cats are the most loving and affectionate cats. They are really possessive, because they want all your attention, care and love. They follow you all over the house, they like to lie in your arms and spin contentedly.


7.


The Sphinx cat, because it has no fur, suffers from the cold if exposed to cold air. Because her body loses heat faster and more, she needs more food. It is recommended to leave dry food at will, in a bowl.


8.


The Sphinx cat is very affectionate and playful, attaches quickly to children, gets along well with other cats and even dogs. It has a unique personality and, unlike other cats, which are independent and not very sociable, the Sphinx needs a lot of love, care and affection. You will be amazed to see how this animal gives you back.


9.


The bald cat hates to be left alone, almost begging for love. She plays a lot, she is very active, energetic and acrobatic, but without being tiring and she does all kinds of tricks to attract your attention. It is an animal that fully participates in your family life, and not a grumpy trinket, which sleeps all day. The Sphinx cat is also very talkative, and when you tell her something you will notice that she meows as if she is answering you.

50-pictures-that-proove-that-scottish-fold-are-the-most-adorable-cats-ever

Scottish Fold is a rare breed of domestic cat with a genetic mutation that affects their cartilage and gives their ears a folded / bent appearance. This cat is a controversial topic for some people, because the mutation that makes it adorable, makes it even more susceptible to certain joint diseases. This breed of cat is popular not only because of its physical features, but also because of their loving and gentle character.


1.


Scottish Fold first appeared in 1961 in a barn in Perthshire, Scotland. At birth, the cat had bent / folded ears, and after having puppies, two of them had the same characteristic as their mother. A nursing program began in 1966 that resulted in 76 kittens, 42 had folded ears, and 34 had straight ears. Scottish fold puppies will be born with straight ears, and in about 21 days they will bend.


2.


Scottish Fold cats, whether with folded ears or straight ears, are benevolent, playful and get along well with humans and animals in the environment in which they live. There are affectionate cats that attach to caregivers, they become depressed when left alone. This breed of cat is intelligent, but also stubborn. He prefers to be outdoors.


3.


Scottish Fold cat fur can be long or short and can have almost any color combination (including white). Short-haired cats have thick, soft fur, and long-haired cats have extremely dense fur around their ears, tails, cheekbones and fingers.


4.


During spring and autumn they lose a lot of hair. It is good to brush them several times a week, to check the teeth and ears, which can get dirty more than other cats and can result in infections. It is recommended to be careful with their diet because some can gain weight if they do not have a balanced diet.


5.


Scottish Fold cats should be fed a combination of dry food and wet food. A diet with premium or super premium food can have a positive impact on your cat's health and well-being. We need to feed them a complete and balanced meal, served in an established schedule so that they do not gain weight.

50-funny-pictures-of-cats-sleeping-in-weird-positions

Cats usually sleep between 13 and 16 hours a day. What is the reason they need so much rest? Expert Abigail Tucker, author of "The Lion in the Living Room" has an extremely interesting explanation.


1.


According to the expert, although the time dedicated to sleep differs from one cat to another, depending on age and personality, cats usually sleep between 13 and 16 hours a day. Only bats and opossums sleep more, almost 20 hours a day.


2.


"Everything has to do with the instinct of a predator. If, for example, herbivores graze for hours until they fill their stomachs with enough food, in the case of cats, hunting gives them a very short time to attack and devour their victim. This behavior has also been passed on to domestic cats, so they can spend most of the day sleeping, like lions, ”explained Abigail Tucker.


3.


Another characteristic of cats is that they are twilight animals, being more active at sunset and at dawn. During the day, they rest and at night they become active.


4.


"On the other hand, many cats, especially apartment cats, sleep rather out of boredom, having nothing to stimulate them, such as those raised in the yard," she added.


5.


Studies show that cats sleep has two phases: REM (Rapid eye movement) - characterized by rapid eye movement, when dreams occur, and non-REM sleep (NREM) or deep sleep.


6.


During NREM sleep, the cat's body recovers. Bones grow, muscles develop. The immune system strengthens. 60% of a cat's sleep is REM sleep, three times less than in humans.


7.


According to the expert, when sleeping, the cat must have its own bed. "Cats need their space, where they can sleep better. If you make a special cage for him, even a box, the cat will be much happier than if you keep him in bed ", the expert added.

50-pictures-with-birman-the-perfect-cat-for-your-family

Birman cats are the heroes of many legends. They lived in Burmese temples. They were considered close faithful monarchs, guardians of the saints, and symbols of peace.


1.


Perhaps for this reason the second name of this breed is the sacred Birman cat. After World War II, this race was on the verge of extinction. In Europe, only a few people remained at the time, but due to the work of the breeders, they were able to avoid losing them.


2.


Not only did they bring life back to the race, but they improved their physiological data. To achieve this goal, Siamese and Persian cats were crossed, as well as surviving animals.


3.


The representatives of this breed are of medium size, a compact, slightly elongated appearance. The average weight of cats is 9 kg, and that of cats is 6 kg. Their tail is not very long, thin and fluffy. The Birman paws are short with rounded legs. Looks like they put on white gloves.


4.


According to many reviews, Birman cats are smart and always invent something new: they can open a closet or press a button on devices. But at the same time, they will never hurt you, using revenge as an insult. Such smart cats can even be taught to make simple commands or bring a toy in their teeth.


5.


During the game, they always understand what cannot be done. So by snatching a toy from you, they will never release their claws and will not scratch themselves. Their temperament is calm and gentle. Birman cats with chocolate they will always find entertainment in the absence of owners. They are not intrusive and moderately active. Many believe that they are not inherent in jumping, but this is not the case.


6.


The Burmese is a playful social cat who wants to be an involved member of the family. Friendly with children and animals, the Burmese loves company and attention and fits well in any type of family.


7.


The Birman is a playful social cat who wants to be an involved member of the family. Friendly with children and animals, the Birman loves company and attention and fits well in any type of family.


8.


Birman cats have a distinct appearance; Their fur may have six colors and two different patterns, but they always have white legs and blue eyes. Their long fur has a "standard" length, meaning it does not grow continuously. It also doesn't tangle so quickly, so brushing twice a week should be enough to keep the fur fluffy. Like its relative, the Siamese cat, the Birman is a soft-spoken talking cat that converses frequently with humans.
