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.

It's me again!!! That picture was taken when I was about 4 months old. Mama is not a good picture taker but she still took a good one of me. Her excuse is that she has a crappy camera. Yeah right! Papa and Mama put up a screen on our balconey now I can go outside and they don't have to worry about me jumping off the balconey like Babycat did.
I did not get neutered yet as I had a cold for a while...that's what the vet said but I was still spunky there off and on. So I have to wait for a few weeks. I got another needle for vaccine. I hate those. I'm to get a rabie shot after my neuter. Fluff told me they make you sleepy for a couple of days. At least it did to her and Jupey. Anyway, aren't I cute in my picture. Mama is hoping to get better pics of me but that lame excuse of hers...needs a better camera...is holding her back.
So I'll say goodnight for now.
Take care and cry like a banshee!!!
