Just look at those wrinkles! Hairless cats need to bathe every one to two weeks because their skin can develop bacterial infections or even acne like rashes. They can get super oily so baths are incredibly important for their overall health.

I often hear people aren’t fans of hairless cats, but personally, I’m a hairless cat lover. I love all animals. Especially because, just like us, they don’t choose the body they are born into.

Just watch this little one have a blast in the bath. What a cutie!

It is estimated that tens of millions of cats live on the streets of the United States. Sadly, many communities attempt to control their numbers through lethal methods such as catch and kill. Such methods are not only horribly cruel, they are also ineffective and costly. There is a better way.

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane alternative to euthanasia for managing and reducing homeless cat populations through sterilization. TNR begins with the trapping of cats using humane cage traps. The cats are then taken (in the trap) to be sterilized and vaccinated against rabies, distemper, and other diseases. Finally, the cats are “ear tipped” so they can be easily identified as sterilized. Following surgery, the cat is returned to the trap and allowed to recover, then released to the site of capture to live out its natural life while being cared for by community volunteers.
