All about Jake
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.

Jake (A.K.A Monkey) is a very hyper cat, especially at night when mom and dad are trying to sleep! He stays in shape by doing the occasional lap around the place with his girlfriend, Peanut. Jake loves to curl up with mommy in bed and knead in her hair because it feels good and he shows his contentment by purring up a storm and sticking his tushy in daddy's face while doing so to get comfortable.
Jake's best friend is Jasper who will groom him until Jake's had enough, all the while gently butting heads with his pal to show him he loves him. Jake does not get along with his older stepsister, Kitty, as she did not give him a very good welcome when he first came home. Jake is now being resentful towards her by attacking her whenever she is in his sight. Although he can lay down beside her all day long and not bother her, it boggles mommy and daddy's mind as to why he must attack her when she walks around. It's like he wants to control her actions or something....did I mention Jake wants to be the head honcho of all the cats in this household?
His most favorite toy to play with is..Get this, a Q-tip! Every morning he will race mommy to the restroom and make sure he gets in before her so he can talk up a storm and cry for a Q-tip in the floor cabinet. It's strange behavior but he just loves to drive mommy crazy!
Jake doesn't beg for food, which mommy and daddy are grateful for but he is a messy eater with his kibble, eating with his mouth open dropping smaller crumbs for mommy and daddy to clean up daily, he's such a joy to have around....
Despite Jake being the bad seed most of the time, he does have some good qualities along with his cute distinguished look which mommy and daddy fell in love with at the store that day in July/02.
