This cat photograph, although interesting, is unfair. It is unfair on this individual hairless cat whose pose mimics that of a debauched human. I’m being a bit silly because the cat doesn’t give a damn about being photographed. Although it is a little disrespectful characterising the cat as a hedonistic, debauched human. Cats aren’t like that. They are better! I’m going to guess: the photographer saw their Sphynx cat lounging on the sofa in this human position and decided to put a bottle of cat champagne in front of them before capturing this interesting picture.

The cat looks overweight but perhaps it is the pose which is giving this impression? Or perhaps hairless cats are predisposed to looking overweight or indeed perhaps they are often overweight. I’ve seen lots of photographs like this; hairless cats with pot bellies.
The cat appears to be ‘pointed’ in the same way that Siamese cats are pointed. This is because the face is darker than the chest and the extremities of the limbs are darker than the more central parts. You can get pointed hairless cats which sounds peculiar because there is no hair and the pointing is only visible on hair. However, that’s not quite true because hairless cats do have hair; very fine, downy, hair over the body which allows hairless cats to have coat patterns like conventional domestic cats with normal coats.
The photographer captured the moment well with the cat’s tongue sticking out. He is licking his nose which, in fact, is a displacement activity. This occurs when a cat is unsure what to do next. It is the same as humans when they bite their nails or scratch their head.
Perhaps sticking the camera in front of him made him do this. Or perhaps he was given a food treat and is just licking his lips afterwards. I did not know that you could buy feline champagne. I wonder what it tastes like? I guess it is coloured distilled water.
There’s lots of loose skin under the arms which is normal for domestic cats. And the hairless cats often have crinkly skin which is very visible for obvious reasons. I don’t recall anybody discussing the reasons for that. Although I have speculated as to what they may be.
