All about Toby
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.

Hello! Do you like my picture? (My human took forever taking it!)
I LOVE cat treats! I can jump sooooo high for them! (much higher than my sister Tessa)
I dislike (hate is a better word) the cat next door named Peaches. Isn't Peaches an ugly name?? (I could beat 'er up any day)
My most embarrassing moment was when I was a kitten and I ran head long into a wall to wall mirror!!! You probably would of too! but now, I know better.
Please vote for me as CUTE!
