Sphynx cat being checked over by a judge at Romanian cat show

I don’t know who took the photos but I particularly like this one. It highlights the anatomy if this well-known cat breed and its monkey-like athletic abilities. You can also clearly see the webbed paws of the domestic cat.

    Interesting cat breed, and a question from me_
    why are their feet webbed? Eva

    • Diane Ricciardi Stewart says:

      Eva, all cats have webbed feet like that. It’s just because of the fur that we cannot actually see their anatomy. . . ♥♥♥

      I am pleased that you like it. I thought that it reflected this cat breed in terms of appearance and behaviour quite nicely.

    I also think it’s a nice photo. The cat looks at ease though not comfortable with how it’s held. It’s just used to that kind of handling, which I’m not fond of. I understand that the judges are only there to look at it, not necessarily pet or comfort them, but I’ve watched these “shows” and I would be more comfortable if they would slow down a little and connect a little with the inner animal and not just look at the exterior.

    This IS an interesting cat to look at though! I’d love to hold one once; it’s probably an amazing, tactile experience. A cat with warm, bare skin. So, human-like.
