All about Herbie Perscutter II
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.

I found my parents one hot summer day in August. They fed me smoked salmon to coax me out of the bushes. I was about 6-8 weeks old. I loved them right away and purred and rubbed against them every chance I got.
They took me to the doctor in a BOX and I was checked over and given my shots. I was very brave and did not fuss much. However, when I had to go again for a bladder infection and stay the night for tests, I let them know I was not happy about it. I just could not help it when I went potty on the back seat of the SUV.. :)
I love my mom and dad. I follow them from room to room. Sometimes I must stand in front of the computer screen until they get the idea I want some attention. I am persistant in this. I stretch out everywhere I can. I sometimes sleep right between them.They feed me snacks and that is my favorite thing right now. I have them well trained.
I fetch and I bring them toys in bed to encourage them to play. They are very good about it. I go outside on a very long leash to explore. They keep an eye on me and untangle me from bushes. I have several friends who come over to play. I chase them away as I am the boss here.
I will run and jump on the bed over and over and meow quite loudly when I want them to get up. I lick their hair and get into things I am not suppose to. This usually annoys them and then they get up... I am just a little spoiled. I love my life and I am very lucky they found me.
