How Often to Bath a Sphynx Cat?
How often do you need to undertake Sphynx Bathing? The oiliness of the Sphynx’s skin means that you need to bath your Sphynx on a regular basis.

How About Sphynx Cat Paws & Toes?
If you think that indoor Sphynx has clean paws then you’re wrong again.
Although you can often see your loved Sphynx licking and biting it’s paws (ice-cream licking) , they feet are still dirty, yak! So it is very important to get as much dirt as you can at the time of bathing.
Take one paw in your hand and put some pressure on one of the toe pads so that the claw extends. Pull a pinkish area at the base of the claw (this is known as the quick) and clean the dirt with the soapy water. It should be very easy at this stage as feet had a good soak. Keep your Sphynx warm, always top up sink with warm water.
