I've been allergic to cats all my life, so I don't tend to have the same reaction to their presence that a lot of people do.
I've seen a fluffy and affectionate a cat make people so crazy in love with it that it was actually painful for them, but my immediate thought when meeting one is always, "OK, how long until this little guy dries my eyes out?"
While this certainly doesn't make me the biggest cat lover in the world, I do feel that it helps me stay a little more impartial about them. So when people tell me that their wrinkly Sphynx cat is just as lovely as the others, I don't find it hard to believe.
And after these photos, you might not either.
