Pet Tip

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.

Bennie & Joon are brother & sister.  They are named after the brother & sister characters in the movie Bennie & Joon.  They are the older two of a group of four (see Phineas & Gussie.) 
Bennie: a.k.a. Boonie, Ben, Benjamin, Booboo

Was the first long-haired cat I got to know.  I love brushing him, and he seems to enjoy it but he moves slowly away from me as I brush him so I end up slowly scooching along the floor after him. 

Has a lair underneath the bed where he lies in a hammock created by a sheepskin stapled to the bed frame.  He was very depressed after his dog, Ceilidh, passed away and would  spend a lot of time in his hammock alone mourning.
Joon:  a.k.a. Joonie Louise, Juniper

Loves to sit on your lap to be petted, for hours.  She'll purr the entire time and a bead of spit will form on her chin.

Enjoys helping with paperwork by lying on it, helping with the computer by lying on the keyboard.  She's very insistent and if you want to actually get something done she needs to be invited into the other room and the door closed.
