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.

Well, when I was about 6 weeks old or so my handmaid found me hiding under her porch. I had been the victim of a drop-off and I was very malnurished. Therefore, I didn't trust humans to well! My handmaid was diligent though. For three days she tried to lure me out. Finally I realized she wasn't going to hurt me so I decided to see what she wanted. I am so glad I did. She found me to be so special she named me "Blessing" because she said that's just what I was. When I first came to my home, I was small enough to hold in the palm of my lady's hand. Now at 8 months old I take up most of her lap. It's the cat's meow here for I AM the queen of this house. My handmaid has a husband and two children who love me to death. There's not a moment that goes by that I am being ignored, but on those occaissions I would rather be, I love to nap in the shoe bin of my handmaids closet. I have a variety of balls and mice that the children like to play with with me! Plus they have pet Cavies that I take pleasure in pestering on a daily basis. At night I like to sleep on my handmaids chest or in her arms. It seems to comfort her when I am near. And believe it or not but I can't stand seafood! Anything, with tuna or shrimp or any fish in general I refuse to eat. I'd much rather have turkey and chicken and beef. I am also very particular about my litter pan! I expect it to be cleaned as soon as it is soiled and I will sit there and meow until it is taking care of. I also only drink fresh cold filtered water from the fridge. There's no use trying to give me that nasty tap water because I will not drink it! Needless to say I am very well taken care of here and I thoroughly enjoy being the queen of the castle. I had a rough start but just look at me now.
