4 – Peterbald
The Peterbald is another cat that began its development in Russia with a crossing between the Donskoy and the Oriental Shorthair. Many of the cats are nearly bald, while others have what might be described as a velvety coat. Needless to say, shedding will not be a problem with the Peterbald, and their ‘coats’ can come in nearly any color or pattern. Peterbalds have long legs and tail and an elongated facial structure topped by large ears.
Friendly and affectionate, this small cat gets along with everyone in the household, even dogs, and is always lively and curious. This is a cat that seeks out human companionship and does best when someone is home during the day.
