heh I knew marko had bald cats because i've seen pics of the cuties. As I thought maybe since their skin is designed a bit different.
In the case of Hilda she got it bad so we never shaved her again after we just trim her fur shorter even if takes more time and work. Plus she gets depressed after bath/shave and very angry. Now that I think about it maybe that's what happened to Akira.
(btw once I had an Akira kitty. I miss him).
btw I totally believe what binky said about dogs feeling bad when people laugh after being shaved. They're sensitive enough to pick up on that
