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.

I'm FeLV+, but I'm an only kitty and have been doing okay for the 5 years since my owner got me from the pound. We used to worry a lot about when I would get sick and die, but I just keep hangin' on, so I just try to live every day to the max... I like to sit in the windowsill and look at the world outside. If my mom tries to leave the windows open, I push out the screen and slip outside to wander around. Makes her a little crazy, but a kitty's gotta do what a kitty's gotta do, right? I also like to run into the bathroom anytime anyone's going that way and jump up on to the sink and beg for them to turn on some cold water for me to drink, even though mom always keeps my water bowl full. There's just something about gettin' your very own licks from the sink. I've still got my claws, but I'm pretty good about not being destructive. Though there is this beagle in my house... *evil kitty grin* Since I'm all white, every picture my mom gets of me seems to be fuzzy or blurry.... see for yourself here: http://www.geocities.com/ndr76/kitty.html. Well, this has all been fun, but now I have to go take a nap and then barf on the carpet... somewhere between my mom's bed and the bathroom ought to be good...
