Sphynx cats are generally well-suited to indoor-only living as long as they receive plenty of attention and playtime from their owners. These cats are very social and affectionate, and they thrive on human interaction. They are also relatively small and do not require as much space as some other breeds of cat.

That being said, it’s always important to provide any cat with plenty of environmental enrichment to keep them physically and mentally stimulated. This can include things like interactive toys, scratching posts, and climbing structures. Some owners choose to provide their indoor-only cats with a catio, which is a type of outdoor enclosure that allows the cat to enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the outdoors while remaining safe and protected.

It’s also important to keep in mind that Sphynx cats, as with any other breed, have grooming needs. As they are hairless, they tend to produce more oils on their skin which may cause them to develop skin irritation or acne. So they require regular cleaning and bathing to keep their skin healthy.

Overall, as long as you are able to provide the social interaction, enrichment and grooming that they need, Sphynx cats can make great indoor-only pets.
