Close Encounters

of the hairless kind.

The look in their eyes is extraterrestrial.

And the look on their face is like an angel. Um, cattitude is everything?

“Jadoo. (how’s that pronounced exactly, Josh?) Let’s give our hairless friends some love.” –Josh Norem



  1. For solid 10 seconds, I trully thought they were saphiers.

  2. Teresa in NC says:

    Those eyes hold the secrets of the universe.

  3. Blue Footed Booby says:

    Have you ever pet one of these? It’s like petting a giant purring scrotum.

    Which is to say, awesome.

  4. I love hairless cats and dogs AND men 😆
    Sean Connery, Yul Brynner or for the younger set, Vin Diesel and Jason Statham.
    I can’t be the only one, right?

  5. Beautiful eyes 🙂

  6. bluebird says:

    Yay, Josh Norem!

  7. Hmmm, so fur seems to cover up belly rolls. Note to self–grow some fur.

    Gorgeous shots, as always, Josh. Hairless cats seem to be missing the best part of catness, but I’m sure some people prefer the baldness.

  8. Theresa says:

    Did you ever meet a Sphynx cat? They have amazing personalities. Very, very sociable, like little talk show hosts. When you’re with one, you forget about the hairlessness.

  9. Theresa says:

    Those aren’t belly rolls as much as they are belly pleats. 😉

  10. He is a Peterbald cat named Jay-dew, which according to Google translates to “Magic.” He was very sweet, and also much less oily than a Sphynx.

  11. emmberrann says:

    Second that!!

  12. Theresa says:

    PS: Belly pleats are really hard to do yourself. Best to send out to the dry cleaner. 😛

  13. Smartypants says:

    Gigi – Jason Statham hubba hubba!

    In #3 pic, Jadoo looks like he’s yorking up a hairball, but that’s not possible….maybe he’s chuckling?

  14. Thanks 😀

  17. Fird Birfle says:

    anybody else notice the theme music in the hovertext of the first photo above,
    which is the Flying Monkeys Guard song from the orig. Wizard of Oz film????

  18. tagatha says:

    Wow, those eyes are really mesmerizing!

  19. Blue Footed Booby says:

    I love the ones that where tiny sweaters :3

  20. Theresa says:
  21. Theresa says:

    I’ve been Modded! Aw Jeez! CO, you know I’m not a spammer! I just posted a tinyurl of a website with a lot of Sphynx pics. The orig, URL was NSFW, and I thought migh upset people here– and would prob. get modded anyway. 😦 Peeps, think about this when you name your Tumblrs!

  22. Theresa says:

    HELP I’VE BEEN DOUBLE MODDED! Send extra iced coconut lattes!

  23. Theresa says:

    Is that Peterbald or Peterbilt? I mean, Peterbilts are hairless, too. :mrgreen:

  24. You are SO VERY MUCH not the only one 🙂

  25. Theresa says:

    But– why? 😆 😆 😆

  26. my son has alopecia and his body can not grow hair at all……..LOVE all the love going out for the folically challenged 😀

  27. Leilani says:

    I thought he was a Spice Cat from Arrakis.

  28. The Dune universe. That cat is definitely getting some Spice in it’s food.

  29. Oh yeah? Well then here’s a pic of THIS kitty wearing PJs! He had some dental work done and needed to stay warm.

  30. *DED*

  31. Thank you for all the beauty that you see and share with us!

  32. I think it is supposed to be the notes played in the movie, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”. The first five notes of the song played when the spaceships land.

  33. DED next to brinnann

  34. I was getting lonely. 😦

  35. 6rabbits says:

    Wherefore art thou, Nurse Stephie? *hauls out the Hello Kitty defibrathingy*

  36. Theresa says:

    *weeping with laughter again*

  37. 6rabbits says:

    At first I thought it was the beginning notes to The X-Files, but I think you’re correct, belphebe!

  38. more giggles!

  39. …Hugh Dillon et al. from the cast of Flashpoint…Drool!

  40. Mamabear says:

    “giant purring scrotum”! You, sir or madame, win the interwebz.

    And you’re right. We had a devon rex, and they DO!

  41. Cynthia M says:

    Jason Statham makes me purr!!

  42. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    OMG..I’m SO glad I didn’t have coffee in my mouth just then. 😀

  43. The look in the first photo… stole. my. soul. 😀

  44. I wonder what they feel like when petted?

  45. You were auto-modded.

  46. see Blue Footed Booby, above

  47. I’d be willing to test it out.

  48. 😯 I had look up the word “scrotum” 😯 I will take your word for it 😯

  49. Patricia says:

    I would love to get a cat just like him. My Devon Rex passed away last year from old age. Can you tell me where I can buy one pleeeez. My email is trishvanheerden at Didn’t put the @ sign in just in case it doesn’t come up.

  50. That pic is the cat’s pajamas!
