Sphynx Cat versus Siamese Cat.
What are the differences between the two cat breeds?
These two well-known cat breeds love attention. They are affectionate with family, this cat breeds love to talk. If you’ve got a Sphynx and Siamese cat at home, prepare to have some lengthy conversations.
The main feature of a Sphynx cat is its lack of a fur coat. The cats are not, however, entirely hairless but covered with fine, downy hair that is said to be like peach skin. This cat has no whiskers or eyelashes. The head resembles that of a Devon Rex. The eyes are deep-set and the shape of a lemon. The body is fined boned but muscular and has a barrel chest. The legs are long and slender and have a bow-legged appearance caused by the barrel chest.
The tail is long and tapering and hard to the touch. They are warm and soft to touch and have earned the name ‘suede hot water bottle’. The skin is wrinkled on parts of the head, body, and legs but should be taught everywhere else. Pigmentation is clearly visible on the skin of the Sphynx cat. All skin patterns and colors are acceptable.
The Siamese cat is a medium-sized breed with a long, lithe body that is graceful and elegant but still has a muscular feel. The body is well balanced and athletic, the legs slender and the paws small and oval. The head viewed face-on resembles a triangle tapering in straight lines to a fine muzzle. The ears are large and pricked and are set so that they follow the lines of the triangle. The eyes are oriental in shape and slant towards the nose.
The short, fine, and close-lying coat has a pale main body color is pale with darker intensely colored points. The colored points only extend to the mask area of the face, ears, legs, and tail which are the cooler parts of the body. It comes in a wide range of colors. The eye color will be a vivid intense blue.
Sphynx and Siamese cats love human attention and very talkative breeds. The Sphynx cat is outgoing, mischievous, people-orientated, and loves attention. These cats often greet their owners when they come home and are very talkative.
With little protection against the elements, these cats cannot be left out in the cold, they don’t like to sit on cold surfaces and they do appreciate central heating. Those that do go outside in the sun may need sun protection on pale skin.
The Siamese cat is probably as well known for its loud vocal personality as for its classic looks. The breed is usually outgoing, extroverted, and can be extremely noisy. Siamese cats demand attention and to be part of the family. This is not an ideal cat for someone out at work all day as they do not like to be left on their own, two littermates Siamese may be the answer. Siamese cats are highly intelligent and need to be kept amused. Toys and scratching posts should be provided for their amusement and they can be taught to retrieve toys.
They are a highly social cat. If you are gone during the day, the Sphynx and Siamese will enjoy having a friend in the form of another Sphynx or Siamese, another cat, or even a dog. They like the company and, equally importantly, they like having someone to snuggle with so that he stays warm. They love to be held, and you can expect them to sleep with you, most likely under the covers. Think of it as having a living hot water bottle.
Due to its hairlessness, Sphynx cats are sensitive to sun exposure as they have no fur to protect their skin from harmful UV rays. Their direct sun exposure should be limited. Just like humans, these cats can get a sunburn if exposed to sunlight for too long. For this reason, sphynxes should remain indoor pets or be monitored closely when outside.
The most prevalent health concern for Siamese cats is an eye condition. Cross-eyed Siamese was common decades ago, the same gene the gave them colored points also resulted in faulty vision wiring in the brain. The tendency for crossed eyes was mostly bred out, but it still means that Siamese have less-acute vision than other cats and they are more at risk of being hit by vehicles when outside after dark.
