All about Tony
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.

all about 'The Look'
I like to jump up in the middle of the night and bite my owner's toes.
I HATE when my owner's decide to rearrange the furniture, I have to
go around and sniff EVERYTHING 50 times!
My pet peeve is when my female owner let's me jump up on the counter
and then my male owner yells at me to 'get off the counter!'
My most cherised memory is the fist day at my new home, I was very scared
but my owners made me feel very loved!
