When it comes to adorable animals, hairless cats don't typically make the list.
Now I might be biased because I'm a dog lover myself, but I find all cats to be a bit evil. And hairless cats take the cake when it comes to having a bad rap. The furless felines are often the butt of many jokes and are portrayed negatively in media.
Dr. Evil's catty associate Mr. Bigglesworth from the Austin Powers films quickly comes to mind. It also doesn't help that hairless cats look a bit out of this world, sharing quite a few physical characteristics with E.T.
But I'm proud to announce that I'm officially ready to set aside those old beliefs after seeing these 21 adorably hairless cats.
1. Hairless cats have to keep warm somehow.
2. At birth, it's almost impossible to tell a hairless cat from a newborn pup.
3. "Maybe if I pose with a hairless buddy, my cuteness will double."
4. This whole hairless family could use some loving.
5. "Oops, did I do that?"
6. "Hey…hey…look what I can do!"
7. Just lounging around looking cute and such. NBD.
8. She's so pretty!
9. How can you say no to these faces?
10. He can fit in the palm of your hand!
11. That tummy, though.
12. She must have just eaten a lemon.
13. Look how charming he is while taking a cat nap.
14. I'm at a loss for words. This might be the cutest baby cat ever.
15. "No one touches Mr. Fluffy but me."
16. Who wouldn't want to cuddle up with this cutie?
17. Hairless or not, we still dress them up in ridiculous costumes.
18. "What are you looking at?"
19. "I couldn't possibly get into trouble with these, could I?"
20. "What's that? I can't hear you."
21. "You can call me ugly all you want, but I know I'm beautiful."
