Some people think they look gross; others think they are beautiful. What about you? Check out this Sphynx cat drawing guide to decide.

Sphynx cats are unique in that they have no fur - they are hairless or have very short "peach fuzz."

The Sphynx cat, also called the Canadian Sphynx or Moonstone, is hairless due to a "naturally occurring genetic mutation."

Scroll down for a downloadable PDF of this tutorial.

Selective breeding of hairless cats began in the 1960s when a few hairless individuals were discovered in North America.

What is it like to own a Sphynx cat? Well, it is very much like caring for any other cat. Sphynx cats are energetic, curious, and intelligent. They are also affectionate - they like to cuddle and be petted!

Sphynx cats are indoor cats due to their lack of a protective coat. Without it, they can become chilled or sunburned. They do enjoy walking on a leash outdoors when trained to do so!

Before today, perhaps you never thought about making a hairless cat drawing. Or maybe you sought out this page because you are a proud owner of a Sphynx cat.

Either way, this Sphynx cat outline will make an interesting addition to your drawing portfolio.
