All about LP (aka Little Puss)
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 don't talk like my brother Tyson, I have a deep gutteral growl which I tend to inflict on my slaves when the lights go out. I am more like a dog than a cat. I love flicking my toys in the air and then rounding them up late at night. I love watching the dishes being done. Sitting on the top of the fridge while this is done is the best vantage point. I love playing with pencils, especially when crosswords are attempted! I also enjoy a good book, sitting on pages and absorbing the plot. Most of all, I am fascinated with Tysons tail, not having one of my own.
