With Miroslava, the breeder of the Don sphinxes, we got acquainted at an exhibition and, without wasting time, called in it in office on an interview. We fell in love with her pets at first sight: they are beautiful, incredibly tender, inquisitive and are really similar to aliens.
the Don sphinxes are very manual creations more reminding dogs than cats. The sphinx can rush, play, but it is worth taking it on hands, he right there calms down and falls asleep.
the Don sphinxes keep playfulness for the rest of life. We have "grandmother" who is more than 10 years old, but she still plays as a kitten.
at the same time sphinxes very tender, kind, perfectly get on with other animals. At us there live both dogs, and a polecat, and sphinxes willingly play with all and love all. When the unfamiliar animal comes to the house, the sphinx will concern to it a little watchfully in the beginning, but through short time is already ready to make friends.
These cats very sociable therefore alone miss and long. The owner who spends the most part of time of the house, or other pet as the partner is necessary for them (not necessarily the cat, it can be also a dog).
the Don sphinxes well study and perfectly go on a lead. Therefore if favourite to process from parasites and to do necessary vaccination, he can be walked. But sphinxes do not go to unauthorized absences. We live in the private house, the territory is fenced with a fence. And our cats walk only in a protection, without making attempts to get out.
the Don sphinxes are peaceful. Though during puberty when they call "the second half", hormones "go to the head", and the cat or a cat can show aggression. Besides ungelded cats strongly mark. Therefore if you are not going to breed sphinxes, it is better to sterilize or castrate the pet before puberty.

U of each of our sphinxes is lodges. Happens, they sleep with dogs or all together, a heap on a window sill.
the Don sphinxes are very clean. All our kittens, only having learned to go, begin to use a tray.
the Don sphinxes eat everything. If to leave chips on a table, they with pleasure will regale on them. Therefore it is necessary to watch that cats did not eat something forbidden. They can be fed with both a dry feed, and "naturalka", the main thing that the forage was qualitative and balanced.
At the Don sphinxes can develop food allergy therefore it is necessary to select a forage individually. And, if you change a forage (even within one producer), it is worth watching a condition of the pet.
