No , I'm not a four-legged bat, or a
medieval gargoyle come to life...
Don't you like me?
Do you find my nakedness indecent?
Come, come, am I any more naked than you?
You want to know where I come from?
Well I shan't tell you...
because I am a Sphynx, after all,
so I ask the questions!
Wouldn't you like to stroke my soft skin?
It would be a change from fur!
But maybe you don't like my wrinkles.
I'm actually a kind of Devon Rex,
minus the fur...
which makes me all the more of a mutant.
In any case, those Rex cats are just beginners at
the mutation game,
but I'm an old timer!
I have ancestors on pre-Colombian engravings;
scientists spotted me in 1830 in Paraguay and
in 1900 in Mexico-and now that
I'm being seriously bred, you'll just
have to put up with me!
