Bald & beautiful

Hairy keeping Matt Kelley company

There was an article today in The New York Times about a man named Matt Kelley who has an autoimmune disease called alopecia areata.

He’s bald. All over.

Now while us Sphynx cats think being bald is way cool, most humans do not like it,  and so instead of feeling special they feel bad about themselves.

Matt felt bad, for a long time, but he’s feeling better now with a little help from his cat, Hairy. In fact, he’s feeling so much better that:

  1. He’s planning to become a therapist and help other people with similar problems find self acceptance; and
  2. He is adding to his family of hairless critters. We think that is a swell plan.

Good luck Matt! You look great to me.



The city of brotherly love

Hi Folks,

It’s me, Mochy. I haven’t written in a while because, believe it or not, it’s been too darn hot.

Too hot for me, the heat seeking missile? Me, the duvet diving diva? Yep. Too hot. I just lay around on my back with my legs in the air looking like a polar bear.

Well, luckily it’s cooled off a bit, so now I’m snuggling with my bros. That wonky looking one on the left is RayPod. If he didn’t have curly furs he’d look as weird and wrinkly as moi. Not that he doesn’t look weird. In fact, as someone pointed out, he looks like a big gray pipe cleaner.

The other one, whose head is out of the picture, is Mouse (that’s Truman to you). Truman is very very handsome. And a real gentleman. He has four teeth, allergies, and patches where he’s licked his fur. He’s a bit of a mess. I love him.

Coco is in the other room, talking to herself very loudly. She is a Burmese which explains everything.

Gotta go.

Love, M
