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 Tippin.  The reason why my name is Tippin is because when I was a baby mommy had to get my leg aputated because the breed that I am dont have any tails so I had a tail growing into my leg. So then the vet said that if my leg wasn't taken off then i might not be able to walk.  My name is Tippin because I always use to tip over.  I am a very loving cat and love to sleep with my sister Chloe under mommys bed and in the closet.  My old kitty mommy didn't take care of my brothers, sisters, and I and she didn't give us any milk so momy wanted to adopted us.  I also enjoy crawling into bags without mommy knowing but the she finds me and says if I go in the bag I might hurt myself.
