Bambino Cats

Bambino History

Bambino cats are the result of cross-breeding two specific breeds of domestic cats...The Sphynx cat, with the recessive hairless gene, and the Munchkin cat, with the dominant short-legged gene.

The International Cat Association has recognized the Bambino as an experimental breed while The Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) and the American Cat Fanciers Association (ACFA) have not.

Bambino Cat Care Facts

Some believe the Bambino to be a hypoallergenic breed. While their dander may not be as plentiful as cats with a full coat, they do still have a very light down which some may be allergic too..

  • Coat needs much more attention than a normal cat.
  • Susceptible to feeling the cold and their skin can get injured easily
  • More likely to suffer from sunburn
  • Require regular bathing to keep their coat clean

Bambino Health Issues

It is always safe to assume the Bambino could be prone to developing some of the same issues seen in the Sphynx and the Munchkin since that is where it came from...

  • Bacterial skin conditions and infections
  • Lordotic spinal curvature
  • Pectus Excavatum of the breastbone.
