10 Cats That Don’t Shed


2 – Donskoy

Although it might easily be mistaken for a Sphynx, the Donskoy is actually a separate breed first developed in Russia. Like the Sphynx, it is a nearly hairless breed and is very docile. The skin of the Donskoy is hot to the touch, and the high body temperature of the Donskoy helps it to avoid some of the respiratory diseases that affect the Sphynx. The skin of the Donskoy actually sweats, like human skin does.

The slanted, almond eyes of the Donskoy also set it apart from the Sphynx, which has rounder eyes. The Donskoy gets along well with everyone in the family, including other pets.
