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.

Janie is a girl and Patrone is a boy.  They are twins.  They were found in the back of a semi trailer, abandoned by their mother.  They were only about 4 or 5 weeks when we first took them under our wing.  Patrone got sick and couldnt walk, but we nursed him back to health.  Patrone is getting bigger then Janie, but Janie still runs the show.  They are very playful and love life.  They love people as well and can definatly be defined as "lap cats".  They are getting bigger by the day and I love them more then life! :)  They sleep with me every night and always follow me around.   Today I let them wonder farther then our front porch and they were extremely curious and we not ready to come in when I wanted them to.  They are both cuddled on my lap sleeping at this very moment.
