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.

Pearl is a really wonderful little princess.  She was born on Memorial Day.  Her owner at the time named her Princess but I did'nt really like that name much so I changed it to Pearl because she looked like a black pearl.  She has an incredibly soft satin black fur to this day.  She's extremely loving and has a wonderful temperment.  Every morning when I get up for my coffee she wants me to pic her up for a "Big People Ride" and she neads a licks my arm.  She likes to sit on my lap when I'm on the computer.  Sometimes when she sees the pointer on the screen - she'll watch it go back and forth.  When I run the pointer all the way to the right of the screen it goes off the screen - she'll get up and walk behind the laptop to find it - poking her nose around the front and the back wondering where it went.  That's pretty amusing!  Silly Girl!
Anyway she's excited about having her own pet site and says HELLO to everyone.
Hope you'll say hello back and vote.
P.S.  Icys is Pearls son - she can hardly believe it herself -LOL!
