Bald cats

The bald breed is called "Sphynx." Martian cats, for sure. They have a reputation as particularly affectionate cats.

A word on cat allergies -- I grew up with cats in the household and had no problem with allergies. But then I moved out to go to college, and after five years away from the fur people, I found myself with itchy, runny eyes whenever visiting my parents & the cats. (Hm, maybe it was my parents I'd developed an allergy to; hadn't thought of that before.)

Anyway, being allergic to cats was less important to me than having cats around. I love cats. So when I was through with college and living in my own apartment, I adopted a cat. Itchy, runny eyes for a year or so. And then I got over it. Go figure.
