Peterbald

The Peterbald is a mixed breed cat–a cross between the Donskoy and Oriental Shorthair breeds. These felines are known for being affectionate, outgoing, and loyal.

The breed gets the “Peter” in the name from Saint Petersburg and the “bald,” of course, from their mostly hairless coats. You may find these cats in shelters and rescues, so remember to always adopt! Don’t shop if you’re looking to add a one of these cats to your home!

The Peterbald is a hairless cat who has a reputation as being exceptionally loyal to the humans in their life. This is a breed that will want to be around you and your family all the time, so make sure you can provide enough attention to the cat. Although be warned that, as a hairless breed, these felines require more maintenance than many other cats.
