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.

Buddy showed up on my porch one afternoon and sat with me on my patio chairs and made this his daily routine.  He was being mistreated by neighbourhood kids and neglected by his owner, so I asked if I could take him and care for him like he deserved.  Well it didn't take long for him to make himself at home.  He is the most loyal, affectionate and smart cat.  He put weight on and grew like crazy!  I love that he thinks I am his, and loves to flaunt that in front of my hubby by making sure to snuggle in my face in front of him.  I love that he goes through the motions of marking me... and gives me head butts every chance he gets... even nips my cheek now and then affectionately.  I love that whenever I am upset he gets right in my face making it impossible not to smile.  And I love how far he has come in trusting people.  And I have never seen a big cat that could move so fast, he is the laser king around here!  Oh and he watches AFV... religiously...lol.  He even gets mad at the commercials!
