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.

Fagan was one of four stray kittens I took in, I made a deal with my mom when I was down to 2, if she took one, I would keep the other.... thank God she took his sister.  Fagan is my little man, we have been through so much together the last couple years.   He is a trooper having over 30 vet visits in one year.  He has food and flea allergies, chews off his skin, is prone to depression, has two luxating paetellas, and now sponylosis deformans.  Despite all this and having to take holistic meds every day and get shots now and then, he is such a happy cat.  He loves the simple things, a drink out of the faucet, a tasty treat, snuggling cheek to cheek with me on the couch.  I have never once had a care about the money he costs us and am quick to remind hubby of how much he gives us in return when he does.    He has not a care in the world when he is watching his squirell friends outside or playing string, or chasing his big sister up and down the hall.  I love most that although it took years, he now comes out to meet guests and look for pets.  I love that he is always waiting for me on the bed at bedtime to get his meds and treats.  And his squeeks, they melt my heart...
