What are some of the differences (basically) in the Don Sphynx and the normal Sphynx?

Well, a good Don Sphynx is rubber naked, different earset, a bit muscular then the Sphynx which is supposed to be "cobby".

The Don itself is from Russia, another difference .

The following picture gives a bit of an idea what the differences are. The features are exaggerated, but it I've found it helpfull
From left to right you have the Peterbald, Don Sphyxn and Sphynx

Wow... I am in love! What a sweetie.

Is he a talker?

From the picture drawings it looks like the first is more "siamese" type, the second - "cornish" type and the last "devon" type. Is that about right?

The peterbald is basicly a OSH/SIA and Don mix so you're spot on regarding that one.

The Don is heavier in the build then a cornish, I'd think more like a naked Russian Blue or similar.

the Sphynx itself has been outcrossed with Devon's so that's also pretty much spot on there too a bit less stop though

About the talkativity..no idea have yet to go get him in Hannover in germany

Warm and nice to the touch the Don, not even having a fine coat of peachy fuzz feel a bit more like skin then the Sphynx

Sphynx's always have so much expression on their faces! probably because there is no fur to cover it up! I really like the third picture down, so adorable

This may be a really stupid question, but my sister said that with sphynx cats, you have to put sunblock on them because they can get sunburned. Is that true, or completely ridiculous? I thought that sounded a little odd, so that's why I'm asking.

Oh and he's absolutely lovely, btw.
post #19 of 22
ah, ok, thank goodness for wikipedia. You should never let sphynx cats outside because they can develop heatstroke and sunburn. I knew that.

Very true about the sunblock. Our blue tortie female once escaped out on the roof one morning when we were sleeping in..got a tan and turned dark blue...so yeah.. they do need sunblock
