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.

We adopted Cammie from Adopt-a-Cat in Anchorage, Alaska. She has been found last October 2003 in Denali National Park (Mt. McKinley). We'll never know her story but it doesn't really matter. She must have been well loved in the past because she is a non-stop purring machine. We've nicknamed her Velcro Cat because she's always attached to one of us. She doesn't meow at all but lets out a little squeak when she wants your attention.  She and her "sisters" Halo and Pepper get along fairly well, but Cammie makes it clear that she'd prefer to be left alone.  She seems to love men and just tolerate cats.
