This forum is for cat lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your cat.

What kitty doesn't love to lay in the sun?? smile

We don't have any experience with sphynxies, so we looked around the 'net. There's a good website we found that recommended putting UV protectant film on the sunny windows.
