There are so many breeds of cats out there, but few are more eye-catching than hairless felines. Cats like the popular Sphynx claim devoted pet parents who love their unique looks. However, for those of us used to our everyday fur-clad kitties, hairless breeds can look a little freaky at first.



October 14th is Be Bald And Free Day, and it’s a perfect time to celebrate our hairless kitty friends. They’re rockin’ the bald look, and the results can be very entertaining!

Here’s a roundup of seven standout hairless cats from Instagram that you won’t be able to stop staring at.

Due to their lack of fur, hairless cats often have to bundle up to keep warm.
