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.

OK, I know I'm large, but I have a lot of fur!  My Mom says I'm just big boned.  Whatever, I am beautiful and I know it!  Besides, everyone says so.  Even though I'm large, I'm very fast on my feet.  I love attention and can't get enough of it.  Being brushed is my favourite thing, next to eating that is.  My favourite pastime is lounging wherever it is soft and comfy.  My biggest fear is anything that makes a horrible spraying or hissing sound.  I just can't bear it.  Mostly I'm very laid back but sometimes I give love bites just for the fun of it.  I like to bully my sister but she usually slaps me in the face for it.  We have fun anyway.  My favourite thing to play with is string and I love to hide in plastic bags.  I love to spend hours watching birds - I wish I had one to play with!
