In most of my photos, I usually look nice and clean. However, that is due to the fact that I get weekly baths. I groom myself just like other cats do, but my tongue can't keep up with the oil my skin secretes. Since I have no fur for the oil to distribute itself through, the oil builds up on my skin.
In the two photos below, I am very dirty and in need of my weekly bath. If you click on the photos to make them larger, you will really be able to see what I mean. The oil and dirt are especially noticeable on the pink areas of my skin.
In this first photo, you can see the oil on my neck and chest. You can also see some of the oil on my belly.
In the next photo, you can really see the oil on my belly! If you click to make it larger, you will also be able to see the oil in the wrinkles on the side of my face. The oil really accumulates in all of my wrinkles, so my humans have to very carefully and thoroughly wash wherever I have wrinkles.
In the second photo, too, if you look closely at the larger version, you might notice some brown on the fleece blanket I'm sleeping on. That brown is oil that has rubbed off of my skin. Don't worry, both the blanket and I were washed not long after these photos were taken.
You are still very cute Dragonheart even before your bath. We bet that you feel better after your bath. We do not like baths.
We have to agree that even before bathing you are adorable! We always learn something when we visit you. And we're really glad that our Lady won't bathe us - hehe!

That's interesting Dragonheart. You must dry off a lot quicker than I would, if I were to take a bath.
Does your skin get itchy if it doesn't get washed?
We think you are handsome clean or dirty!!
You look handsum and regal whether before a bath or aftur! And I really enjoy learnin' about yur breed. I'm really glad that you don't mind yur baths.
Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!
Gee, Dragonheart, if that's what you call dirty...
But really, I understand your feeling that way, because a cat is cleaner than other creatures. It's just another reason we cats are so terrific...
Clean or not, I think you're tops!
How fascinating -- I just love learning about you and your breed! You are a wonderful and unique kitty, and very handsome whether before or after a bath!
And I'm really glad you don't mind your baths too much -- you have a wonderful loving mom and dad.
Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!
I was somewhat relieved to avoid doing the "dirty" theme for photohunters as that's a hard one. You've done an excellent educational job Dragonheart--as usual!
Great shots. I love the way you can see the folds in the skin on the enlargement. Clean or dirty Dragonheart is a beauty.
Wow, even when you are "dirty", you look clean!
We hafta admit, baths wouldn't be so bad if it wasnt for all the wet fur. We almost never hafta take baths, but it sure would be easier when we do if we dint hafta get all our fur back in place.
Skeeter and LC
Wow Dragonheart, great "Dirty" picture. We are glad you like your baths. Your pictures are very cute. Have a nice Saturday!
Your FL furiends,
Does it feel good to have a bath and get rid of the excess oil? It must be easy to get dry after with no fur. Clean or dirty, you're always cute.
wow, i wasn;t aware that happened to you baldy cats! you are high maintenance but incredibly beautiful...are you quite sure you ain't a meezer in disguise? :)
i've got a tummy like yours today dragonheart...bald is indeed beautiful. meowmie managed to take a picture of part of my tummy today when i was washing the surgical spirit from it! it's on my blog
What a lazy cat you are Dragonheart to wait for servants to come and clean you up!
That was an interesting lesson! But cats are always cute, dirty or not, and so are you! :)
There is nothing to do, you still look very clean to me !
BTW Rosie learned to jump now and is a flying cat ! Everything what is in height she has to discover.
So, do you like getting a weekly bath, Dragonheart?
Great picks for The Hunt.
erm.....you're hairless....and you're a cat? I've never seen a hairless cat before. How very peculiar...but you sure is adorable ;p
I think you are really cute, even you are dirty.
Thank you for let us know the reason that you need weekly bath. Now I totally understand.
I see we were of like mind in our Photo Hunt this week Dragonheart!
Well, well. I learned something new about cats! Thanks, Dragonheart, for the lesson. I think you are adorable, clean or not so clean. I would never call you "dirty!"
Hahahahaha! Oily belly, oily belly! You look cute even when you are a little bit grubby.
hahaha..very cute! oiled belly, good one!
But you are still an utter cutie! Happy weekend. This week I have all four of my masters on show for photo hunt. None is happy at the prospect of de-fleaing!
Maybe your humans can find a skin cleanser for you for oil control. What do you say huh? :D
I think you are still adorable even if you needed a bath. :)
It's OK if you're dirty because you're CUTE!!! (= heheee
Thanks for dropping by. May you have a great day ahead.
good of your owner to take really good care of you. lovely photos! :)
wow it's my very time to see a hairless cat and look at the folds of skin..about my poor cat, it was gone this morning, maybe someone got it..
nice naked photo ..... (old dirty minded)
Dragonheart, you teach me something every time I am here. I love how you're all curled up in the last photo. You didn't look all that dirty to me. Maybe ya could just skip the bath this week. ;)
Have a wonderful long holiday weekend. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my "dirty" photo this week.
Hey DH... nice pics!
Clean or dirty you rawk!!!! Great pics ... :)

Clean or not yoor furry cute. Sadie sed yoo haf a nice butt, she's a dirty gerl....lol
Wow I had never thought about the oil on a hairless.
Great choice for this week!
That is very interesting--I didn't know that.
OMG, Dragonheart, you are so handsome! This is my first visit to your site, so I must look around for a little bit to find more photos!
My Photo Hunt photo is up... tell your Mom to come visit! ;-)
I imagine that it feels really good to get all clean again!
oh yes oil, that does get very dirty, and I'm glad you wash and keep yourself clean..
But the pics are just too adorable! :)
thanks for visiting.
Happy Day Dragonheart.
Busy day here... just sneaking in a hello from Caesar and me
Yes, it really shows. I had no idea that this oil occurs like that. interesting. Good thing you have someone giving you nice baths. You must experience the same as I do with my hair nowadays when I've lost most of it: I'm getting dry a lot faster!
That's very interesting to know. Great photos.
aww--you are such a cutie.
Oh you are dirty but still cute! :-)
That is very interesting, Dragonheart. My momma does have hair but she still gots the oily skin. I like that second picture especially, where we can really see how athletic you are!
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe
You are always cute no matter how dirty you are. Love ya Dragonheart :)
Never, never dirty. Just not quite as clean as usual! And beautiful anyway.
You are a very special, that's why you need so much care!
happy weekend :)
Have not ever associated you, Dragonheart with the word: Dirt.
Do you have a secret?
from Rosa and Felicia
I wouldn't have noticed! Bet you felt great after that bath! :)
Such a nice photo.
Yep, you need a bath! You are still a cutie though. Have a great long weekend.
I wonder how well you like those baths.
dragonheart you look lovely even when dirty.
Sara from farmingfriends
Oh but you are still a cutie even if you need a bath!
We all get pretty oily when we need a bath! ;-) Great photos.
Dragonheart, my dear, you are worth every bit of that trouble to keep you from being dirty.
What a dirty boy you are!
Thanks for stopping by mine :)
Great photo for the theme! I know little about cats and even less about this particular breed. Thanks for the knowledge bits.
That's very interesting! Great photos.
Agree with Kelly Cat's comments of " Gee, Dragonheart, if that's what you call dirty..." But it's all relative, isn't it? ;b
Wow, I had to scroll past a lot of comment to find the comment link! You know, my dog licks herself like a cat...she's such a "lady"...your post made me think of that.
you are still very cute dragonheart even before your weekly bath :)
I'm sure you love being groomed by your parents. It's a nice bonding time with them.
Thanks for the visit.
Bath or no bath...you still look beautiful.
Dragonheart looks more clean than being dirty. :)
You are so cute Dragonheart, even dirty! nd I imagine how fresh you will after a good bath!
such a cute picture. must be so easy to take care of Dragonheart.
awwwwwwwwww what a cutie....
even when your clean or dirty
Very cute pictures! Thanks for visiting my page!
Even dirty, you are still beautiful Dragonheart!
(Sorry about all the "Moms" in Mr. Linky, I don't know what went wrong!)
Awww, I'm sure you don't enjoy those baths too much but I bet it keeps you nice and clean!
I'm having a hard time seeing any dirt!I thought that cats didn't like baths?...thanks for stoppin' by my blog!
You and my husband have something in common. He has no hair on his head, so his pillow gets quite oily. He even washes his head every day, but it doesn't help much by nighttime!
Even dirty you are still cute ;)
You certainly don't look dirty to me, ;)
have a great week!
That is very interesting. It is good that you are willing to be bathed. I do believe our cats would rather do just about anything rather than get a bath. Thanks for stopping by to comment on the dirty boys at Pollywog Creek. Blessings!
Very interesting "dirty" pictures! Still cute, even when dirty.
your photos continue to amaze me -- thanks for stopping by my photohunt dirty photos this week too.
What a beautiful cat!
We love learning about you and your breed, Dragonheart! So, does that mean that we hairy kitties have that oil but the hair catches it? You look adorable even with your extra dirt!
Mr. Chen & Ollie
