9. Sphynx Hybrids
Sphynx cats with hairless mutations are still being used by breeders to create new hybrids. The sphynxiebob, for example, is a hybrid between a sphynx and an American bobtail that first appeared in 2015. It resembles the sphynx in appearance, however it is either tailless or has a short, bobbed tail. Despite the fact that most hybrids aren’t officially recognized breeds, they help to expand the number of hairless cats available.
