Breeder April Arguin has  what she calls the Sphynxiebob and and Bambob. Through her cattery called Lil Nudists Cattery, she has developed these breeds and hopes to be recognized by the Rare and Exotic Feline Registry.


They are both developed by breeding the hairless breed Sphynx with other breeds.


The Sphynxbob was created by cross breeding a Sphynx hairless cat with the American Bobtail, an American medium hair with a bob tail.


The Bambob is a cross between the Bambino, (another designer breed that is the Sphynx cat bred with the Munchkin, (the short leg gene) and the American Bobtail which creates a hairless cat with dwarf legs and a bob tail.

The Sphynxbob will sell for $2800 and the Bambob for $3500.
