Sphynx are a breed of hairless cats created by a naturally occurring genetic mutation which causes them to be bald. The very rare new hairless cat breed the Bambino cat breed is the direct result of the purposeful breeding between the Sphynx cat and the Munchkin cat. This produces the amazing Bambino who carriers on the naturally occurring traits for hairless-ness from the Sphynx cat, and the trait for short-legs, or dwarfism, from the Munchkin cat. Both breeds are amazingly friendly, loving, social and smart. The both have unique traits of hairlessness, large ears, and super smooth skin and YES.... lots of wrinkles! The Bambino walks with a unique little swagger to walk their way right into your heart! www.LiLNudists.com
Q: What are Sphynx hairless cats? A: Sphynx cat is a hairless cat resulting from the selective breeding of a naturally occurring genetic mutation causing them to be born hairless. Most of today's pedigreed Sphynx are descendants of the original three females, Q. Punkie and Q. Paloma, who were rescued from the streets of Toronto, Canada and sent to Dr. Hugo Hernandez in Holland in 1980. The offspring from these breeding's were sold in the United States, Holland and France and are the foundation of most of our present day breeding Sphynx.
Q: What are Bambino hairless cats? A: Bambinos are a very new, very rare breed. According to Lil Nudists Cattery, Stephanie and Pat Osborne of HolyMoly Cattery established and founded the Bambino cat in 2005. The Bambino is the purposeful outcross breeding between the Sphynx breed and the Munchkin cat. The Munchkin is a breed of cat, which has naturally spontaneously occurring autosomal dominant mutation causing distinctive short legs. This breed was studied extensively for years and was deemed to be a healthy genetically sound breed; which is fully eligible for Championship status with both major cat associations. The result of these breeding's is a hairless cat like the Sphynx, with adorable short little legs!
