People often ask me "what does a sphynx or bambino cat feel like?" I tell them that the sphynx and bambino feel very soft and very warm; they feel like a warm peach. If you ask anyone who is owned by a sphynx or bambino cat or kitten they; will tell you that they are outstanding pets. Sphynx and Bambino's will also easily be trained to walk on a leash and a harness outside just like a dog; Of course because they are hairless they can get cold easily or get sunburned so precautions need to be taken. Sphynx and Bambino's also travel very well. Many people who own a sphynx or; bambino cat take them on car rides or their RV on trips, camping, and even on family vacations. These cats are very easy to adjust to new environments and handle changes very well. All a sphynx or bambino cat wants is to be loved by you as much as possible every day!
So you are wondering what is the difference between a Sphynx and a Bambino? The Sphynx cat is a hairless cat resulting from the selective breeding of a naturally occurring genetic mutation causing them to be born hairless. The Sphynx breed as we know it today can be traced back to the originally bloodlines. Most of today's pedigreed Sphynx are descendants of the original three females, Q. Punkie and Q. Paloma, who were rescued from the streets of Toronto, Canada and sent to Dr. Hugo Hernandez in Holland in 1980. The offspring from these breeding's were sold in the United States, Holland and France and are the foundation of most of our present day breeding Sphynx.
Stephanie and Pat Osborne of HolyMoly Cattery established and founded the Bambino cat in 2005. The Bambino is the purposeful outcross breeding between the Sphynx breed and the Munchkin cat. The Munchkin is a breed of cat which has naturally spontaneously occurring autosomal dominant mutation causing distinctive short legs. This breed was studied extensively for years and was deemed to be a healthy genetically sound breed; which is fully eligible for Championship status with both major cat associations. The result of these breeding's is a hairless cat like the Sphynx, with adorable short little legs!

Bambinos are still a very new and rare breed. LiLNudists Cattery is at the forefront of the future development of the breed. We have created an online community where other dedicated Bambino breeders can communicate and work together to produce the desired healthy cats that match the Bambino standard. We have recently re-written the original breed standard with the goal of having the Bambino accepted and registered as "Sphynx New Trait." The reasoning for this is because in each litter the long legged kittens are genetically Sphynx as they carry no dwarf gene; and the short legged kittens are the same as the Sphynx in looks and personality with the exception of the gene for dwarfism. Our eventual goal is to have this accepted by the Sphynx breed committee. Then the short kittens would be Sphynx new Trait (Bambinos) and their long legged siblings would be able to be exactly what they really are: Sphynx.
