"It’s like a warm peach that kind of gives a little bit, that has extra skin."

Said the Yankees pitcher Greg Bird, about his hairless cat, Mr. Delicious.

To fully savor this post, pair it with the previous post.

Speaking of extra skin, I feel there is an elephant in the room.

Mr. Delicious -- that's the best pet name I heard in years.

I knew a couple who had two hairless cats. They were the most hideous things imaginable.

In an animal that isn't currently endangering you, hideousness can be perceived as cuteness.

People love that annual ugliest dog contest. And it's usually won, I think, by a hairless (or mostly hairless) breed.

They looked like this: sphynx cat

Do you really think anyone could call it 'cute'? Exotic, maybe. Cute, no.

If they were nice enough to have me over to their house, I sure would. I might even not be lying.

With really hip friends you can make fun of how their children look, but who has friends like that?

'Interesting' would be a truthful way of being polite.

There's a picture of the man with his cat. Cute.
