In this next photo, if you click to make it larger, you can see my umbilicus (the cat equivalent of a belly button) which is where my umbilical cord was attached. It is the small, pale pink circle in the gray portion of my skin just above the centre line. With most cats, who have fur, you can't see the umbilicus, although when the belly is shaved it becomes visible. With female cats, it is often used as a landmark during spaying.
In these photos, you can also see my wrinkles, which are a characteristic of the Sphynx breed. Wrinkled skin is desirable in Sphynx, especially in show and breeding cats.
If you look closely at these photos, you can also see that I'm a little dirty. These photos were taken a day or two before my weekly bath, when I tend to have a lot of oil build-up on my skin. It is especially noticeable on the pink-coloured areas of my skin. It gives me a bit of a striped look when the oils accumulate in my wrinkles!
