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.

 Gator loves to play, he thinks everything, everyone is a toy.  He jumps my one cat who is real shy.  She gets it from both of them.  Gator is a ladies man (kitty) and a momma's boy.  He has to be with me almost all the time.  Sometimes it drives me nuts.  He loves to take out of his food dish one piece of food and bats it around for awhile them he tosses it in the air and eats it.  With 3 cats, 2 of which are females I have my hands full.  My oldest one hates both of them.  The other female just wants to be left alone and Gator just wants to play and doesn't understand why they won't play with him.
