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:
- He’s planning to become a therapist and help other people with similar problems find self acceptance; and
- He is adding to his family of hairless critters. We think that is a swell plan.
Good luck Matt! You look great to me.
