Photo Hunters: Hair

Hair

Dragonheart(Click photo for a larger image)

Sphynx are hairless cats, so as a Sphynx, my most distinguishing feature is my lack of hair! However, like all Sphynx, I do have some hair on my body - most Sphynx have hair on the bridge of their nose, and Sphynx may also have hair on their ears, like I do, or other parts of the anatomy (the CFA breed standard allows for "short, fine hair may be present on the feet, outer edges of the ears, the tail, and the scrotum. The bridge of the nose should be normally coated.") As for myself, I only have hair on my nose and my ears. (You can really see my hair if you click on the image to make it larger.)

Patricia said...

It is funny, Dragonheart, but you were my first thought when I saw that the theme for this weekend is "hair"! =) One of my kitties has a little gotee. I should have taken his photo for this week.

Thanks for visiting Pollywog Creek and have a blessed weekend.

Karen said...

Interesting take on the theme. I've never seen one of these cats in real life. Thanks for sharing your knowledge of them!

Hot(M)BC said...

Way cool! You have hair too. :) See, we learned more about sphynxes today! We learn so much from you, Dragonheart. It's fun!
Purrrrs,
Boni

Oooh how exciting, Dragonheart. Do you have any idea what you want for your birthday? And what are you going to do for the day? You'll have to let us know and we'll also want plenty of photos.

julie said...

At least no fur ball for your human, :D

Have a great weekend!

Mia and Ghost said...

Dragonheart - you look very handsome in your picture. Mom said your head looks just purrfect for kissing.

Chen & Ollie said...

Dragonheart, we love learning more about you. Why does the breed allow for hair on certain parts of the body?

Also, Congratulations Dragonheart!! You are the winner of our 100th post contest!! Thanks for guessing. Pls. send your snail mail address (see our bloggie for details) so we can send you your prize.

Purrs,
Mr. Chen & Ollie

eija said...

nose hair? haha, that's funny - but then again, the cat at least has a warm nose :D And I see that also the whiskers are more or less nonexistent.

Thanks for visiting me :)

Dragonheart, as usual beautiful, although you have a little frown today. Everyone loves you even if you don't have much hair.

Artsy Catsy said...

After some major twisting & turning, I checked and I, too, have "short, fine hair present on the feet, outer edges of the ears, the tail, and the scrotum" ... I must be a Sphynx!!

Hi there Dragonheart--

Your (really embarrassed) buddy--Jimmy Joe

Mom Unplugged said...

I see tufties on your ears and when I enlarge, little hairs on your nose! Cute!

You are very handsome Dragonheart, and I love your gorgeous eyes!

I think the hair on your ears looks very distinguished.
You have an international following!! Who is Captain Lifecrusier? I'm going to the captain's page to find out.

We still love your ear tufts the best!

Imma (Alice) said...

I could see your ear hairs in the small photo, Dragonheart, then I went to the big one and wow, you do have hair on your cute wee nose. You are so handsome. (don't ever tell Shadow I said that as I always tell him he's the handsomest tom cat in the world).

Thanks for visiting my hairy post today.
