All about Bubba
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.

I am Bubba and my mommy tells everyone I'm the sweetest kitty on the planet. I'm a big kitty, full of love. I love to meet people and everyone is my friend. Everyone seems to fall in love with me after they meet me.
I love to snuggle and huggle and get scratchies. I love to sit outside and nap when there's a cool breeze. Mostly I want to be in the company of people. I love to curl up with my mommy and nestle her to sleep. Dinner time is my favorite time of the day eventhough this awful Diabetes has made my new food kinda yucky tasting.
Things have been kinda spooky the last few weeks but I'm putting on a brave face for mommy. I've spend lots of time in a strange place where doctors poke me and keep me away from my mommy. Now I get shots twice a day which I do not like. I don't want to see my mommy cry anymore so I sit still for them best I can.
I have a mean sister, a small skinny Calico named LoQuita. She slaps me around sometimes but we get along just fine. I could knock her 'cross the room if I ever wanted to!
