Thursday Thirteen: Bald is Beautiful!

13 Reasons Bald is Beautiful - Why it is Good to be a Sphynx

  1. No fur = no shedding!

  2. No hairballs!

  3. We don't have to worry about our fur getting matted or otherwise messed up.

  4. Sphynx have a faster metabolism than other cats breeds, which means we can eat more food and stay slim!

  5. Because we don't have any fur, our humans let us sleep with them, snuggled under the covers, so that we stay warm.

  6. Weekly baths result in an extra serving of stinky goodness for being good while being bathed.

  7. Sunlight feels really good against bare skin.

  8. Humans always let us cuddle in their nice, warm laps.

  9. Since Sphynx are friendly and outgoing, we charm everyone who meets us in person.

  10. Large Sphynx ears make it easy to hear (useful for hearing the humans opening cans of stinky goodness or returning home after being away.)

  11. Thick paw pads allow Sphynx to walk very quietly, sneaking around (great for pouncing on unsuspecting prey.)

  12. Our lack of fur shows off our muscular confirmation quite nicely, it's not hidden under fur!

    and most important of all:

  13. Our dad, who is allergic to other cat breeds, can tolerate Sphynx, so because we are Sphynx, we get to live with the best humans in the world.

"D", hold on tight! Merlin's trying to jump on your Dad's other shoulder.

Sweet Praline said...

Hmmmm. I think we need a picture of "floofy" beside "bald" and compare the two. Mom says the Sphynx kitties are so soft to touch. At least you don't have to worry about hairballs and mats!

Thanks for sharing.

You are very beautiful and muscly.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Thirteen excellent reasons why bald is beautiful :-D

I especially agree with no fur = no shedding (as I look at my chair full of white cat hairs :-p); how it shows off your muscular physiques; and, of course, the best of all, that your Daddy does not suffer from allergy symptoms :-D

Eric and Flynn said...

We agree that bald is beautiful. Hairballs are horrible because sometimes they don't yak up right away.

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Our dad shaves his head in the summer & mom can hardly keep her hands off it! So we agree, bald is beautiful!

The Devil Dog said...

Those are great reasons. I like #4because I tend to eat all sorts of stuff, food, too.
