Peterbald Description

The Peterbald cat breed is one of the newest hairless breeds. Peterbalds are descended from the Russian Don Hairless breed with outcrosses to Oriental and Siamese cats. They are unrelated to the Sphynx, as the gene that causes the hairlessness is different.

The Peterbald cat is a graceful, muscular, foreign-bodied cat with long legs and fine to medium boning. They have a long, whippy tail, oval feet, wedge-shaped heads and delicate, warm, elastic, "chamois-like" skin. They are found in a wide range of colors and patterns, including colorpoint.

Eye color generally conforms to coat (skin) color.

Like its Oriental/Siamese forebearers, the Peterbald personality is energetic, outgoing, affectionate, and interactive. They enjoy being in the middle of everything.

Peterbald kittens (or cats younger than two years of age) may have a soft, wavy coat along any or all of the body. True baldness begins from the head, neck and upper part of the back. If any coat remains it is short, soft, and wavy on the extremities - the muzzle, base of ears, forelegs, feet, or along some or all of the tail.
