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.

 Hi there! My name is Hank! I was born on April 7, 06, my owner got me after her cat, my half brother, was hit by a car.  I am still just a baby, or my owners like to think I Am. I love to play, i'm very playfull but when i'm tired you can do anything you want to me! Move me around and cuddle.. I love to cuddle when i'm sleepy. I sleep on my owners bed everynite, or else on the couch. I hate the vacumn cleaner, it scares me so I run upstairs and hide. I also don't really like water. I love to go outside and play as well but I just stay around my house so I won't get hurt. When I was just 3 months old my owners got me "fixed"..that was so mean of them but I think it was my own fault for whining all the time. I am a big fan of being brushed!. I also like to chase bees and roam in the grass...i hope you all like me!

   Ps..My picture was on Halloween 2006, it was my first halloween, i got a little tired waiting for the children to come to the door so I had a little cat nap..
