  How To Care For A Sphynx Cat
Due to the lack of fur or coat, regular bathing of a sphynx cat is very important because of the way their body oils builds up on their skins. Bathing them at least twice or thrice a week would be enough.

Because their body losses heat faster, they should not be leaved outdoor unchecked.

They do not have fur or coat so they should not be exposed to too much sunlight since it can cause sunburn.

Regular cleaning of the sphynx cat ears is necessary because they do not have enough hair in their ears to prevent the build up of dirt and ear wax. Their ears must be cleaned at least once or twice a week.

Their nails should be cleaned at least twice a week due to how quick oil and debris can accumulate under those nails of theirs.
