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.

My kitty mom adopted me from the Humane Society after my owner died. It was love at first sight!  I know I'm cute- I look all black but have 2 white 'boobies' on my chest.  I have no teeth either, but that doesn't stop me from playing fetch or carrying my stuffed moose around.  I love wrestling with my partner, Buster, and also enjoy watching the birds on the patio.  I am sweet and gentle, but can be a little too 'helpful' during feeing time.  I know I am loved and am so happy at my new home!
