WHY DO THEY COST SO MUCH?
SPHYNXS ARE A RELATIVELY NEW BREED OF CATS
They started to be developed through selective breeding in the 60s.
To put it in a simple way: in the past, very few cats were reported to be born with a gene mutation that caused them to be “naked”, and those were systematically bred in the hopes of generating more hairless babies.
Long story short, after bumps on the road (the limited genetic pool caused litters to die or display health issues), only in the 70s Sphynxes started to become a healthy breed with stable genes. That version was developed in Toronto, reason why the modern Sphynx is called “Canadian Sphynx”.
SPHYNXES ARE VERY DESIRABLE
They are considered one of the friendliest and most dog-like cat breeds. They look cool and exotic. They are also hypoallergenic.
CONCLUSION: THERE'S DEMAND AND NOT ENOUGH "SUPPLY".
I personally prefer it that way because Sphynxes do need special care. When someone is willing to pay the price for them, there’s a good chance that person has given it a lot of consideration and is more likely to be responsible about it.
