Sphynx cats act more like a dog than the brooding and temperamental traits other felines are known for. The hairless breed is social, energetic, and love to show an abundance of affection to its human. They are also quite curious which leads to them getting into all sorts of mischief. Although, there are different variations of the Sphinx cat, the most popular in North America are the descendants of a natural mutated pair from Toronto, Canada, or the pair from Minnesota. Hence, those wanting to own their own will fork out hundreds of dollars. A new scam, in Alberta, Canada is causing alarm from animal groups who fear regular cats are being put through painful and torturous situations to appear like the real Sphinx-cats.
