Fursday (Without Fur)

Hi Peeps! Imagine what it would be like to have NO fur coat all you doggies, kitties, and guinea pigs out there – just imagine……but on a HOT HOT HOT day, we’d sometimes like to slip out of our fur coats and chill – right?   Well as you know there ARE some of us who ARE hairless………and frankly, they kinda make me glad I have a fur coat even if I get HOT in the summertime!

Mexican hairless dog……..actually hard to tell he’s hairless – could just have a shiny short cropped coat I suppose…but he’s got “worry lines” in his forehead!  Maybe he’s wondering where his coat is?????

And this little sphinx kitty – he’s only 12 weeks old and already he looks COLD and like he’s somebody’s grandpa.  Also has “worry lines” – see what I mean?  There’s a lot to worry about when you have no “protective coating”.

I really am not poking fun at these guys – there’s room on the planet for ALL of us and we ALL deserve a wonderful life – right?  I just got to thinking the other day when some of my bloggy buddies were saying they wish they had a shorter coat or less hair just exactly what that might mean for some of us and all I can say is that I will not be complaining again about being warm because I have a coat on!

Nuff said?

To be super fair, I have to say while looking for those pix online I saw some totally ADORABLE pictures of “baby” sphinx and hairless that were BEYOND cute.  Have you ever noticed that baby animals (and baby humans too!) are almost always totally adorable?  It helps us find our forever homes early on I think.  As for human babies – I’m sure when they’re waking their parents up every two hours all night long at first with dirty nappies and being hungry it HELPS a lot that they’re adorable (if you get my drift).    I think the bottom line is beauty is all around us – and takes all forms and shapes and sizes.  Hairy and hairless, we’re all worthy of love.   Right????

SamLove

Gosh – I really hadn’t intended to do a lecture on babies or hairlessness but there it is anyway huh?  I think I’ll go admire my ginger furs in the mirror.   I’ve certainly learned to APPRECIATE my gingerness, that’s for sure!

Just checking....yep - I'm ginger alright!!  That leg definitely has ginger fur on it!

    Sammy you are so right..but boy I am even colder looking at those furless sweeties..i always get angry when they have “ugliest pet” competitions..i see nothing ugly in animals..i see uniqueness …and people it’s the same…deep inside us is what makes us who we are….having said that your gingerness is indeed wonderful! Dinnermintz has a ginger girl crush on you of course!! you see nearly everyone assumes Dinnermintz is a boy! and funny even though she is a ginger cat I see her as ‘Feminine” ask mum what she thinks but I somehow can tell the gender of cats and dogs because they have certain male or female qualitites! does mum find the same thing?
    Have a great day sweet man big hugs Fozziemum xxxx

      Yes indeed she does…..sometimes it’s just the way an animal moves – or an expression – but Mom’s usually right…..USUALLY. I think all animals are most interesting creatures….I’m also a BIG fan of bugs. Love bugs. Please tell Dinnermintz that I think she’s gorgeous…..and like you said, it’s ever so unusual to find a girl-Ginger so it makes her quite special!!

      Kitty hugs, Sammy

    The funny thing about Sphynx kitties – they get LESS wrinkly as they get older, which is exactly the opposite of humans!

    Aw we think that those hairless pets look sweet. We like hairless guinea pigs or ‘skinny pigs’ too, but our fur is what makes us lovely to snuggle.

      I’m sure that’s true – the furrier we are the more cuddly we are but then I’m sure people who have those hairless creatures think they feel nice and smooth too……All God’s creatures are fabulous aren’t they?

      Oh that’s an excellent idea Nissy……humans have so little protection from claws, bugs, weather – having furs would make SO much sense. True that some humans have more fur than others but basically they really are VULNERABLE creatures. I’ve seen pictures of humans from long long ago – Mom says they’re called cavemen – they had LOTS of furs on them. Wonder why that went away???!!!

    Some of those little hairless animals have to wear a coat or a sweater all the time ’cause they are always cold. And they have to stay out of the sun so they don’t get burned.
