All about Molly
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.

My name is Molly. I love to have fun running and chasing everything that moves, especially paper balls. However, don't try to touch me! I don't like to be petted or touched very much. But I will allow Karen to kiss my head.
I spend most of my time at Karen's feet. I will follow her everywhere she goes. If I am missing for more than a couple of minutes, Karen will holler . . . Molly where are you? I usually come running, but if I am too lazy, I will reply with a chirp, just to let her know where I am. I am usually on top of the cupboards, just beneath the ceiling.
Nobody will steal Karen's hair at night when I am at my post. I lay and guard her hair all night long. When she wakes up in the morning I try to put my nose right into her nose and push. That makes her wake up fully and kiss my head. Sometimes, just sometimes, I will allow her to rub my head and ears, but not for too long.
My birthday is September 15th and I am turning 1 year old
Happy Birthday to me!
