All about Gypsy
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.

Well you have probably met my Little sister Mika.... MY name is Gypsy.... NIce name.... I am a rescue cat from the Vancouver SPCA.... I have a very distinct personality in that I am a torti.... My owners vet nearly had a stroke when she found out that I was not the only Torti in the house.... Tori my other OLDER sister is also a torti (apparently torties are know for their antisocial behavior when it comes to other torties...really pig headed....) any way I love to watch the birds and chirp at them.... Yep CHIRP.... I also love to play fetch and I do this neat begging thing where I put my paws over my eyes and to ask for the treats that I love....
Well if you have checked me out you probably have checked out Mika why not check out Tori... She is the matriarch of this motly crue....
P.S. My mom is trying really hard to get a pic of me with my eyes open... hehehehe
