All about Tigger
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.

Tigger favourite toy is her scrunchie ball. Her favourite thing to do is lay in the sun. Most of the time she hates to be picked up but she likes to be patted. She is an indoor cat. The kids on our street call her Mammy which is short for Mammoth because she is so fat. Our deck has a glass door and one day Tigger ran into it when it was closed. She likes to go under the blankets when my Mom makes the beds. When ever my Mom makes food she meows for it and sometimes gets some.
but this all happened before Archie came. Archie's been here 2 and 1/2 months old now. Tigger hates him a lot. Archie chases Tigger and jumps on her back. tigger hisses and growls at him constently. She is now an outdoor cat because she hates being inside with archie. She doesn't go outside in the Winter so she's going to have to get used to him.
