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.

Hi! My name is Ziggy...known as "Zig Zag" when I was a kitten.(I was a bit spazzy) Now I am 10 & 1/2, & find myself getting mellow in my years. My mom adopted me from the SPCA in Prince George when I was 9 wks old. THANK goodness for her b/c I was stuck in a cage with a bunch of other kitties for 3 wks. We moved back to Surrey in 1995...a REALLY scary place for me!! There's too much traffic where I live now....so my mom keeps me in. I'd rather be inside anyways....I've been in 3 BAD fights with raccons & coyotes before....So I am content with my bed..catnip...toys...U know-the life of a cat! Plus my mom LOVES Garfield! so u can imagine the kitty love around here! I have 2 adopted "brother" dogs----NOT my idea!?!!! I "deal" with them in my own way...I got the Shihtzu in the eye...he's too grouchie for me...--now we have a truce. I enjoy spending time "watching" moms Chinchilla--he he....leave me alone a FEW more minutes.........I just got diagnosed with type 1 diabetes...NEW food!! YUMMY!!---just not too keen on the needles---but mom loves me & is doing all that she can to keep me healthy. (apparently I needed to loose some weight anyways) --sorry my picture is fuzzy--mom is working on a new one-----
