All about Suki
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.

There's a reason they call me "The Evil One". I've had a few traumatic experiences in my life, so now, I just don't like anyone, except my Mom and Dad.
I love my fur mice, and can chase them around for hours, if the darn dog doesn't get it and peel it's fur off first. I run the show among us cats here. I am the Queen, and I act accordingly.
I can do a few tricks that my mom taught me. I roll over on command, and sit pretty.
My favourite spot is the rocking chair in the living room, when I can beat Ozzy, the OTHER cat to it.
