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 am an attention whore. I LOVE to be pet and played with. When I'm not getting the attention I want I will make up ways to play by myself. My favorite these days is to chase my tail. I have caught it on occasion and from what my first mommy says I look pretty confused when I do! My first mommy, Hilary, and my daddy, Puff, were the ones to rescue me from the adoption center at Petsmart. My adoptive mommy saw me and fell in love with my so much that she called my auntie, Megan, at work to say: "We're getting a kitty." My daddy is allergic to me and therefore I'm ban from playing in his and Hilly's room; which is fine, it's a big mess and I'd get lost. In fact I did once! I got into their room ((hehehe)) and got lost in the closet behind the boxes in there. But when Daddy went away one weekend mommy snuck me in there and I got to sleep with her! She kept kicking me though so I think I'll stick to the couch.
My all time favorite spot is now a toss up between the top of the round chair in the livingroom and the couch with all of mommy's blankets and my new founds space under the stairs. I go there when daddy scares me or they threaten to take me outside.
*Yawn* Well that's all from the kitty front. Back to under the blankets for this cold kitty!
