Be Bald and Free Day
Loving hairless cats and dogs!
We refer to dogs and cats as our furry friends, but not all dogs and cats have a coat of fur. In honor of Wellcat.com’s Be Bald and Free Day on October 14 - a fun holiday for people to celebrate their baldness - we thought we'd pay tribute to bald cats and dogs. We think they deserve their day too. After all, does the fur make the pet? Or is it the dog or cat within that we really love so much? DUH!
I have to admit that the Sphynx hairless cat and the Peruvian and Mexican hairless dogs are very interesting to me...The hu"mom" could trade in her Swiffers and Dyson Animals for stock in sunscreen! I don't think so! But they are rather stunning!
Not sure where all of this will end up with tomorrow's blog, but it is sure to be HAIR-RAISING!!
