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.

"... In Thailand the Korat is seen as being a good luck cat, because it has the colour of rainclouds, silver sheen as money, and eyes the colour of newly sprung rice - everything points towards wealth. This is the cat with five hearts, three of which are on the head. Looking at the Korat straight-on, you see the Valentine-shaped heart of the head, which can be gently traced around the head. The second heart is found by looking down over the top of the Korat's head, and the third heart is the nose. The other two hearts, which are not part of the head, are the muscular area of the chest when the cat is sitting, and the most-commonly-forgotten one, the heart inside the cat!  In an old poem it is said that the Korat has body colour as the seeds of the sawat fruit, the fur is smooth with roots like clouds and tips like silver. The eyes shine like dewdrops on a lotus leaf. Things can't be described more poetically!"
Maverick is a lively and extroverted cat who demands close contact with us.  He has a great degree of self-confidence and expects us to adapt our habits to his needs and ideas... Maverick follows us in EVERYTHING that we do - a cat that sleeps with us and thoroughly enjoys a good bubble bath!  He loves and has a special sense of being around people - and enjoys participating in all chores.  He loves to play - either with itself or a toy - but the best games are played in company with humans.
