People Share Pets With Rare Genetic Mutations That Will Shock Animal Lovers

White Speckled Bird

This bird has tons of specs on its head. He looks very similar to the cat in the photo above, although way nicer and less sinister. Maybe they’re friends, and they bonded because they have the same type of fur and feathers. The cat could learn a thing or two about kindness from this bird. They like the same style. It seems speckled and spotted is the new plain. There’s a lot to learn from these animals, who sometimes seem like they have the secret to life all figured out (via Defused).


Hairless Hamster

This hairless hamster is one of those rare pets that make us gawk with adoration. Because he has no hair, his owners decided to knit him a sweater to keep him warm. If that’s not an act of love, then we don’t know what is. If bald people wear hats, then hairless hamsters need sweaters. Imagine how cute he must be, running around in his little sweater? Let’s hope the owners decided to knit him multiple sweaters, so he has many different colors to choose from. For example, when he feels like wearing blue, he can wear a blue sweater. He looks adorable in that sweater and knows how to wear it. He’s a hamster with a lot of style (via Brightside)


Pigeon With 40 Tail Feathers

Did you say shake your tail feather? This pigeon certainly did! He’s one of those rare pets with a genetic mutation that gave him 40 tail feathers. That’s more than most pigeons can handle. He must have been given this many tail feathers for some reason or another. Imagine how much of a breeze he can make using just his tail? Probably a lot. He can probably get a lot of height in the sky with minimal effort. Talk about takeoff (via Brightside).


White Bumps

This little critter has a bunch of white bumps that make his vitiligo stand out. Because he has such dark fur, the vitiligo shows up on his back. He looks like a chessboard. All he needs are the chess pieces, and he’s good to go. In fact, he also looks a bit like a porcupine. He’s one of those rare pets with a genetic mutation that makes him incredibly adorable (via Defused).


White Paint

This dog looks like he stood in the way of a painter’s paintbrush who accidentally flicked a bunch of white paint all over his body. His face certainly suggests that, since he doesn’t look too happy. Either way, he’s one of those rare pets with a genetic mutation that makes him much cuter than if he was a regular old pet. Not that there’s anything wrong with normal-looking fur, but when there’s a special quirk to it, it adds to the cuteness instead of taking it away (via Defused).


Sock Dog

This dog’s vitiligo makes it look like he’s wearing socks and a face mask. After the world pandemic, this dog met his safety standards and made sure his health was prioritized. He never has to worry about digging around in his bag for a face mask ever again. Better yet, he even has a free pair of socks with him wherever he goes. There’s no need to worry about finding that pesky pair of socks that always seems to sneak away and hide (via Defused).


Fox Tail

This dog needs to win an award for his tail. Just look at that thing! It’s on par with a fox tail, but it’s attached to a dog’s body. Perhaps he stole it from a fox and decided to keep it as his own. It looks good on him, and he’s one of those rare pets with a genetic mutation that works for him. If this dog could talk, he’d probably say, “paint me like one of your French women,” like in the movie ‘Titanic’ (via Brightside).


Vitiligo Dog And Its Butterfly Friend

Apparently, butterflies like vitiligo dogs just as much as humans! This is a great capture that was perfectly timed. This spotted dog not only has vitiligo but a butterfly friend, too. It seems like the butterfly is fascinated with his vitiligo and is inspecting it as carefully as it can. Maybe he even has a butterfly magnifying glass and is taking in as many details as he can and comparing it with his speckled wings. The dog doesn’t seem to mind at all it looks like he barely notices the butterfly is there (via Defused).


Dog With Lips

It’s not every day you see a dog with lips. Or ever. This dog is one of those rare pets with a genetic mutation that gave him a human quality. It’s a bit creepy, to say the least since it’s too closely related to a human face. It’s almost as if a human got trapped in a dog’s body and never made it out, with only his lips left as evidence. He needs some bright pink lipstick to match his lips. Then it’ll be a sight that’ll capture everyone’s attention (via Brightside).


Got Milk?

This cat has to be the new face for the Got Milk? advert. Just look at the way he works his vitiligo. It makes it look like he has the perfect milk mustache as if he’s permanently drinking milk. Well, since he’s a cat, he is, but surely, he manages to wipe it off every time. He has such a casual look, that he could be one of those cats who’s always drinking milk. We’ll never really know (via Defused).


Sly Look

If this dog could talk, he’d say, “who, me?” He looks both shy and sly at the same time. Even with his vitiligo, he looks like a cute dog with a lot of quirky character. As we’ve said before, rare pets with unique fur gives them that extra trait that many other pets don’t have since it makes them stand out from the rest of the crowd. His paw sticking out must be the cutest part of his body, since it looks like he’s wearing a permanent boot on his foot (via Defused).


Masquerade Mask

This dog’s vitiligo makes him look like he’s constantly wearing a masquerade mask. In a way, he’s always dressed for a masquerade party. He’ll never have to dig around in his closet for the perfect costume since he’s always wearing it. He also has a permanent disguise and just about looks like he can get away with anything. He might even manage to get away with stealing treats out of the box when no one is looking. That would be great if humans always had a secret disguise on them, just like this dog (via Defused).


Greenfinch With A Hairdo

This greenfinch has better hair than most people in the world. First, he has great bangs that look like they’ve been taken straight out of the 1980s. Secondly, it looks like his feathers were combed so they’re silky and smooth. He looks like he’s about to walk down a big runway and do a fashion show for all his bird friends to see. This is one of those rare pets that makes you question just how they manage to look like that. There has to be something we’re all missing (via Brightside).
