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.

My wife and I got layla While we lived in japan. but then she was named mocha we changed it after we saw her smileing to claptens "Layla" When we saw her in the cat kennal she had a queen of my domain thing going. we adopted her because I have had cats with personality disorders before. and layla was a prime example. we think she was a abused by the man who had her because she would freak out with men and big hands. also the way she sits is like she had a broken bone. well now she is a whole lot better happy friendly (when she wants to be) and she'll have the great american debate if you try to take something for her that she thinks is hers
