Hairless Genetics (or Sphynx for Dumbies)

Notice the YouTube channel and video associated with the kijiji ad, along with the comments already posted there underneath the video. ;) It's a scam. For one, this person claims they are "rare" hairless African Serval kittens in her ad when clearly, a serval bred with a domestic is an F1. Yet she says they are more rare than an F1. What a joke.

Genetics are genetics- look at my chart up above and tell me- is this litter real? Don't look at the spots- look at the genetics behind the breeding.

Fully haired African Serval (who clearly did not have hairless parents or grandparents or greatgrandparents- I'm pretty sure that would be a big deal if there are hairless Servals) bred to a naked cat... How would the hairless genetics work?

I'm trying to educate ya'll to be able to call bull when you see it ;)

By the way... I noticed the video was removed that I posted a link to in regards to this scam.

And yes, Trish, thank you very much for the educational post. It is much appreciated anytime! :up:

Awesome! Good job, everyone! Really- sometimes, it is about just educating people- and that goes for breeders too... I have no doubt someone could easily assume they have a rare litter of hairless kitties if they are not educated on the genetics behind it- and they refuse to look into it further.
