The bambino cat is an experimental breed of cat that was registered with the TICA under the designation Experimental Bambino in 2006. This breed is a mix of the munchkin cat and the Sphynx cat. It received its name from the Italian word bambino, which translates to baby in English. Like the Munchkin breed, the bambino cat is short and has large ears. Its skin is like that of the Sphynx cat and is pink or white in color, but this also means that it requires frequent bathing in order to keep it clean of oils. It must also be kept warm and protected from the sunlight.
