Photo Hunt: Bad Hair

PSHunt

Bad Hair

Well, since we Sphynx are hairless cats, we don't ever have bad hair. So, we thought we'd show you what a close up of Sphynx skin looks like. To be precise, we Sphynx aren't literally hairless, we are covered with a very fine down, so that when you pet us, it feels like petting warm chamois, suede or peach. We also have fur on the bridge of our noses, and most Sphynx have hair along the edges of their ears. (Click either photo to view a larger version)

We know some humans who are like that at the tops of their heads. Chamois, suede, silky smooth...

Nothing wrong with a lil balding. Those are the best kinda cats!

No bad hair days, but more importantly, no bad hairball days either.

Daisy said...

That is really interesting! I have some natural bald patches in the spots just below and behind my ears so my Mommie knows just how it feels. It's extra soft there!

We have lost lots of furs 'cause mommy uses the furminator & that stops our extra furs from stickin' all over the furniture & the beans clothes. If you go for a walk outside do you need sunscreen, hairless doggies do.=^Y^=Ty

Boy said...

How gweat never to have to wowwy about bad hair days!

Beau Beau & Angie said...

We don't think either of yoo could efur haf a bad hair day. It is interesting the different texture and spacing of each of yur furs.

Sassy Kat said...

That was interesting, I never really thought about a kittie's skin. I bet it is nice not to have the fur that way you don't have to cough up hair balls.

The Devil Dog said...

No bad hair days for you two, huh? Bet you don't go gray either. That will be cool. You look so sweet laying in the sun.
