All about TIPSY
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.

Tipsy was the sweetest soul I have ever met. My love for her was overwhelming. Watching her die (heart attack) was devastating to me. I felt hopeless and I never got a chance to say goodbye to her She was the 3rd cat in 1 1/2 years that I have lost. My life was richer because of all three of them.
Tipsy I hope you know how much I loved you. I ache for your meow and butt kicking in the middle of the night. Frank and I will never ever forget you. I hope you, Charlie and Georgie are all running around getting into lots of trouble in heaven.
