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.

Bootsi is a 13 year old DHS neutered male and came to us from a friend at the age of 8 weeks in 1992.
Boots is extreemly smart and loyal to us and his neighborhood friends. For a male he is not a fighter and settles confrontation by simply standing firm. He protects his friends the same way and simply moves bewteen the oposing felines.
As he is getting older now and has lost some of his friends, we have obtained from the local Humane Society in January of 2005 a 3 year old DHS neutered female friend by the name of Tanya as a companion.
She has been at Society for the past 15 month and needed a home badly. As she had a rough time prior to coming to the society, she has some behavioral issues which are slowly correcting themselves.  She  is extreemly smart and is slowly trusting us and as of late we can pet her, for short periods pick her up and she sleeps with us in bed. She seems to trust Bootsi and follows his every step. We are convident that in 6 month she will be fully comfortable with us.
