Happy Caturday! Today we’re celebrating the awesome regalness and alien beauty of hairless Sphynx cats, photographed here by professional animal photographer Alicia Rius for an ongoing project entitled The Disturbing Beauty of Sphynx Cats.

“A cat without that protective coat, allows me to recognize and experience each emotion and sensation the Sphynx cat is experiencing, as it was exposed on its raw, naked flesh,” she explains.
