is what I learned at the cat show this weekend....In the picture below is a Sphynx(cat). Most would consider this an ugly cat, however I have to say that I fell in love! He was so sweet and his owner talked about how very lovely he is and I would have to agree! I did some research on these cats and found out they originated in Canada. Sphynxes are know for their personality.. they are extroverts, intelligent, curious and affectionate. I pet him and he felt like soft leather, quite nice actually. I really want one... I'm not sure I can talk Jeff into it though. Three pretty persians. The one in the middle one first place in one of the persian categories.
