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 name is Snowflake,
I'm an indoor, friendly, small, and cute cat who lives a city called Vancouver. My nicknames are "Boo," "Snow Boo," (both from runnning up to my owners and scaring them) and "Snow ". I don't have a favorite toy, I like to just play with anything with my owners. I hate the smell of oranges, too strong for me! My most embarrasing moment was when I tried to jump onto the kitchen counter, and I missed and fell.
Thanks for coming, have a great day! : ) Don't forget to check out my brother Misty's petsite too; (Click Here)
