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

  4. Blue Footed Booby says:

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

    Which is to say, awesome.

  5. Mamabear says:

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

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

  6. Lucy's Mommeh says:

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

  7. 8O I had look up the word “scrotum” 8O I will take your word for it 8O

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

  9. You are SO VERY MUCH not the only one :)

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

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

  12. Cynthia M says:

    Jason Statham makes me purr!!

  13. I wonder what they feel like when petted?

  14. see Blue Footed Booby, above

  15. I’d be willing to test it out.

  16. Beautiful eyes :)

  17. bluebird says:

    Yay, Josh Norem!

  18. emmberrann says:

    Second that!!

  19. Thanks :D

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

  21. 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.

  22. Theresa says:

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

  23. Theresa says:

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

    Joining bluebird in the laughter

  26. more giggles!

  27. 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.

  28. Blue Footed Booby says:

    I love the ones that where tiny sweaters :3

  29. Theresa says:
  30. 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!

  31. Theresa says:

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

  32. I was getting lonely. :(

  33. You were auto-modded.

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

  35. Theresa says:

    *weeping with laughter again*

  36. *DED*

  37. DED next to brinnann

  38. 6rabbits says:

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

  39. That pic is the cat’s pajamas!

  40. 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.

  41. Theresa says:

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

  42. 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.

  43. 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?

  44. 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????

  45. 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.

  46. 6rabbits says:

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

  47. Theresa says:

    But– why? :lol: :lol: :lol:

  48. tagatha says:

    Wow, those eyes are really mesmerizing!

  49. Leilani says:

    I thought he was a Spice Cat from Arrakis.

  50. The look in the first photo… stole. my. soul. :D
