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.

I just came home with Rachel and Adam on May 28th. It was pretty scary at first, especially because I had to be all by myself in the bathroom for a few days. But then they slowly introduced me to these two kitties who live there too. I had brothers! I was so happy to meet Tucker and Louie. Even though they didn't realize it at first, we were destined to become best friends. Now Tucker is teaching me all his best wrestling tricks, while Louie is making sure I stay clean by giving me frequent baths (whether I want them or not!). I'm starting to get used to the people around here too. My parents are really nice, but sometimes they have visitors which still makes me a little nervous. Some of them have made these strange high pitched noises when they see me...Rachel says that's because they're so overwhelmed by how cute I am! Oh well, as long as there's a nice big bowl of food and mum doesn't forget about our nightly game of me chasing her hand under the covers, life is pretty great!
