Genetics and type of a wool

|Types of a wool|
| Litter of a
female cat a brush - point. All kittens have a different wool.
From absolutely bald up to a brush and a direct wool (a kitten chocolate marble a direct wool).
The first peterbalds of
an author's line the Muscat and the Mandarine had the short millimetric
wool which has almost missed to one-year-old age. Their type of quantity
of a wool in the subsequent has been named "flock" as the wool
remaining on a body reminded a fabric for a sofa a flock. Heterozygotic
cats have very much a different woolen covering: from the easiest velvet
a dust without moustaches and eyebrowes, up to velour - a short wool on
a body and longer on a tail and paws, different density. To foresee, how
to undress by two years velour of a cat very difficultly. They can remove
a wool completely, and there can be absolutely naked on a body, but with
a residual wool on paws, a muzzle and a tail (brushes - points).Since
the second generation, from heterozygotic parents (that is,carrying a
gene of a normal wool), kittens completely naked to the touch have started
to be born. Near at hand their skin not suede, and lasts, as rubber. Such
bald kittens from a birth (homozygous on a prepotent gene), that is, not
having in a genotype of a gene of a normal wool, appeared enough problem
for unprepared the breeder. At overdue type of development in the first
weeks of a life they demand the maximal participation of the person in
their cultivation. In the best way they themselves feel at long natural
milk with early feeding and constant heating. If on the average a Litter
from five kittens one is born in a wool or a brush, two heterozygotic
"flock" or "velour", and two homozygous bald from
a birth more often these kids have not enough chances to survive without
the round-the-clock help of the factory owner. It is possible to explain
it that fact, that at a birth naked kittens much less than the dressed
colleagues, and not always can independently make the way to dummies of
mother. Therefore the competent breeder should undertake in time function
of second mum and bring up such kids together with cat - mum, constantly
observing for their health. Very dangerously and cooling of such kittens
as their skin in infancy cannot protect them from differences of external
temperature. However naked kittens, safely living lives first month, do
active, viable and catch up in development of the with a wool of colleagues.
As against naked from a birth, "velour" and "brush"
kittens since a birth differ high ability to live, usually, do not deliver
to factory owners of additional efforts.

In photos kittens of different type of a wool of a cover are submitted:
1. BRUSH- the kitten is covered with a wool: short or long, soft or rigid. The adult animal remains same. Or on a back and a neck there are sites partial bald.
2. BRUSH - POINT a kitten practically does not differ from a brush, can have shorter wool on a back and a head, a tail in a wool. Adult peterbalds has a dense wool only on a muzzle, paws and, probably a tail, that is on "points". A body bald completely or it is covered with a thin flock.
3. VELOUR - the kitten has a short wool on all a body, longer and dense on paws and a tail. The adult animal can have a short wool on paws and a tail, can become bald, having remained in "socks" or "golfs", extremely seldom to become absolutely bald, but such cases not exception.
4.FLOCK - the kitten, as against three ahead of going types, has "gummanoid" features of a muzzle and increased a wrinkle, that is has the type approached to a naked animal. As a rule, has no moustaches and eyebrowes. A wool if she can so be named, no more than 2 mm on all body. A kitten to the touch silk, very pleasant, similar to a good velvet. Such kitten cannot be mixed with removal of hair a kitten (that happens at the unfair factory owners trying thus to raise the price to a kitten).
Also there is still a set as though transitive types of a wool, frequently it happens to guess difficultly what the kitten in an adult condition becomes. But only at bald and the flock of kittens is a lot of wrinkles and "cocmic" a muzzle.
