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.

Skittles is our house comedian.  He only wants affection when he tells you so.  If you touch him without his asking, he will bite your nose, or nibble on your fingers.  He is the picky one of the house, too.  His favorite treat is a pretzel.  He doesn't mind Cleopatra, and, since we got her, he leaves Buster alone, he doesn't attack him when he walks in the door.  Skittles was our first cat and is named so because of his skittish personality.  He is also the most loving cat, but only to his parents and his human brother.
