Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Della A. Yannuzzi
Young readers will enjoy learning about uncommon pets in this "Far-Out and Unusual Pets" addition to the "Cool Pets" series. The color photographs are heartwarming and complement text that looks at the history, characteristics and needs of hairless cats. The most distinguishing feature of this breed is its lack of fur, although its body is covered with very short, thin hairs. Another feature is its wrinkled skin, although its body is smooth and soft. This particular breed goes back to the 1300s when Mexican paintings first included them. Throughout the book are interesting sidebars that give far out facts and other information about these intriguing pets. Hairless cats share cuddly and lovable traits with their furry relatives, but additional care is required to keep them healthy. Hairless cats need to eat more than their furry counterparts in order to produce enough energy to keep warm; they also need extra help in keeping their skin clear due to a buildup of oils. Although this breed looks different from other cats, they are still cats, as their actions reveal. They are independent, have a hunting instinct, scratch, sleep, jump, and leap. The authors note that hairless cats make good pets in spite of their need for a little extra care. Backmatter includes a word glossary, a list of resources for further reading, a list of websites, and an index. Reviewer: Della A. Yannuzzi
