All about Cali
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.

Cali is Amanda's little girl. We got her off a friends farm when she was 3 weeks old she had no brothers of sisters and her mommy went missing and we're pretty sure she was the runt of the litter. When we got her we had to feed her with a syringe, she was soooooo cute! Ever since then she was a great kitty and she fallows amanda everywhere. But in march of 2004 cali disapeared and no one new where she was. We put up posters to find her and she was missing for 3 days. Early the forth day when everyone was getting ready to leave Mom heard a wierd noice coming from her closet (cali doesnt usually make noices shes a mute) when she opend her drawer TADA!! there was cali all scared. When Amanda found out she was found she was soooo happy cali was found she didnt let her go for at least 10min and then she got her water and food and made sure she was okay! We are sooooo happy cali was found, It was like lossing a best friend and none of us wanted to loss another friend that year.
Cali's favorite things to do is sleep on amandas bed on her binder. Also on top of the computer. Cali loves her sucky blanky that shes had ever since we got her. Her best friend is Amanda who has taken care of her since we got her. We love cali and she will always be our little girl!
