Peterbald is a relatively new race of small to medium-sized kittens, the first of its kind was raised in Russia in 1993.

These are slim females with beautiful almond-shaped and large bat-like heads. It has a thin, whip-like tail and graceful rounded feet, which means it can hold and grip items, as well as doormats. Peterbald's can survive for 10 years or more if well cared for. It originated in St. Petersburg, Russia, when a bay jackfish was raised in 1993 by Don Sphynx named Afinguen Mythos with an oriental tortoise shell named Radma Vom Jagerhof.
Their descendants were very loved in St. Petersburg, where these bald kittens quickly became known as the Petersbalds. But a new blood line emerged when more humans began to cross Peterbalds with Don Sphynx, orientally shorthair and Siamese. Peterbald was recognized as a race by the Selectional Feline Federation (SFF) in 1996 with the acronym PBD.
In 1997 the kennel was admitted to the International Cat Association (TICA) and received the acronym PD. The World Cat Federation (WCF) adopted the race in 2003 and gave it the acronym PBD. The other acronyms of the race are PTB, PD and PSX. Peterbald's modern tends more to Eastern and Thai people.

Peterbald's bald pets need to be bathed regularly to avoid fat or soiling. A few kittens need to have their cocks cleaned every morning to avoid the formation of comedones.
