The Canadian Sphynx is a pet that leaves no one indifferent due to its unusual appearance. Someone considers them unpleasant and even repulsive, while someone simply does not like a soul in these “unearthly” creatures.
The thing is that "bald" offspring can appear in completely normal parents as a result of natural mutation. Most often, such animals were considered an anomaly and were discarded by humans.
True, unlike Canadians, they could partially become covered with wool in the cold season, and they wore a mustache all year round. It is impossible to judge the genetic characteristics of these animals today since the breed has disappeared. The last individuals, whose existence is documented, lived in the 20s of the last century, but then the "Inca cats", as the Mexicans called them, did not interest professional breeders.
The kitten was given the name Prune (English Prune - Prune) and upon reaching maturity was crossed with its own mother. The first experiments seemed successful, but already in the early 1970s, the line was interrupted.
