All about Fluffy
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.

Fluffy is cuddly, fun and loves children. She loves to play and thinks she is a dog. Fluffy loves to play fetch with the ball, and have her belly rubbed. At night she cuddles under our covers near our legs. She loves to carry her red string around. Fluffy loves to sleep in a box with bubble wrap in our sun room. Fluffy also likes to walk on the piano keys and play piano. She loves to have conversations with you. You have to be careful when you open the fridge because she will jump into the fridge on the shelf. All we can say is that Fluffy is probably the most friendly cat we have ever had or met.
