All about Spanky
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 got Spanky from the local SPCA, which I foster kittens for until they are old enough to be adopted out. I had his Mom and his siblings from the time they were 4 days old. He is a very playful kitten and he likes to play with his new friends, Daisy ( a border collie) and Smokey ( other cat in the house). Spanky also likes koosh balls. He is very loving and likes to sleep on my pillow at night.. He already fits into the family, and we all love him. Spanky is growing up now and is a Great Cat.....
