Peterbald is the right decision for you?
It was only in 1994 when a Don Sphynx dog with an eastern shorthair kitten was raised and the resulting kitten brought forth four litters that were the first four founding members of the Peterbald cattery. It has a more thai or eastern appearance, with a slender, supple physique and long feet, large, wide placed eyes and a long catch.
Reasonable crossbreeding for Peterbald are Thai and Eastern outcrosses, which further affected the look of the Peterbald genetic group. What makes Peterbald bald? As a result of the genetic modification, kittens of the race that have been bred with coat can loose their coat with increasing years. They' re also smart and vibrant females who love to gamble, climb and toy.
Because of its missing coat, Peterbald needs more general grooming than most other species. As with all unhairred feline races, Peterbald tends to get a greasy layer over its coat, as the natural oil is not spread throughout the coat as usual.
We recommend bathing the Peterbald kitten regularly, in some cases even once a week, to clarify the structure of the oils. In contrast to most of the other kittens, unhairless races have a tendency to be immersed in water and often take an active bath! A very young race, there are still no official numbers about the durability and general condition of the Peterbald-feline.
Being a race that has arisen from the crossbreeding of two other, non-related races and with the inputs of various other races, Peterbald profits to some extent from the merits of hybrids and a diverse heritages. Because of the unhairless character of the cats, they can be vulnerable to dermatological disorders if they are not bathing and cared for on a regular basis, and they are also very vulnerable to sunburn and possibly also to dermatological cancer caused by too much sunlight.
