All about Silver
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.

Favorite toy: I'm not really into toys anymore, but those little play mice are okay when I get bored.
Favorite lounging spot: I spend 99% of my time in Kyle's room, I really enjoy his company and love to watch him play NHL 2004. Other than that I spend quite a bit of my time outside, I love wooded areas, and chasing rodents!!
Dislikes: I really don't like the cheap cat food, only friskies or whiskas. And I don't like it when my Grandpa shuts the door or drives me off his bed, I really like him, and I think he likes me too, he just won't admit it!
