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.

Hey, I'm Tucker! I hang out here with Adam, Rachel and my brother (Louie) and sister (Penny). I've got a pretty easy going lifestyle. I love to eat and play as well as get the occasional bellyrub! My favorite trick is laying across my mom's head around 6:30 am to tell her that it's time to break open a can of food! I love to meet new people and am always happy to greet someone with my friendly chirping. When it's time for a nap, my mum's computer is the best place to cuddle up next to. Of course, there's nothing better than when the pigeons appear outside the living room window...now if I could only figure out how to lure them inside...
