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 LIKE TO PLAY IN THE BATHTUB AND PLAY WITH MY SISTER PUDGY. MY MOST ENBARRASSING MOMENT WAS WHEN MY OWNER WAS IN THE BATHROOM DIEING HER HAIR BLUE AND I DECIDED TO GO IN THERE AND SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON. UNFORTUNEATLY I HAD STEPPED IN SOME DYE AND I WAS BLUE FOR ALOMOST 2 MONTHS.
