Hairless Cats – Pet tip 145

For many, just the thought of a hairless cat is enough to make them shudder. For these people, the sight of a hairless cat is shocking, and touching one is downright scary. If you are one of these people, then this article is unlikely to sway you in the other direction. However, if you are the kind of person who has always been a little bit intrigued by the unique look of hairless cats, read on. Behind their striking appearance is a fascinating background, and if you are considering making a hairless cat part of your family, there is also a plethora of information to know about the proper way to care for these beautiful creatures.

Congenital hairlessness in cats is an extremely rare trait. Essentially, a hairless cat is the result of genetic mutations in one or more of the genes which encode for normal hair development. While the word ‘mutation’ implies that this genetic condition is unwanted and accidental, there are actually many breeders who select specifically for the hairlessness trait and work to maintain the hairless lineage in their cats.

Hi I am Madeline and I was adopted when I was 1 year old. I never make a sound other than a lovely purr. (Not like my step-brother Ebenezer who chats constantly and gets on my nerves so I remain silent.) The only time I ever felt like talking was when I was curious and got locked out of my apt. I snuck out when she was bringing in groceries but the door closed!  I called out at the door and my owner was so shocked (it was funny - the look on her face) If you come and visit me I will lay on my back to say HI but if you ignore me I will wave my paws until you to tickle my tummy. I love to fight with Ebenezer and I usually win which is great cause the loser must wash the winner's face!
