I tried to put together many of the frequently asked questions about the Peterbald cats.
Peterbald is a race of cats of Russians descent. Olga S. Mironova was bred in St. Petersburg in 1994. It is similar to orientally shorthair with a loss of algae gen. In 2009 the race was admitted to the championship group. Peterbald's are similar to orientally shorthair. It has a loss of head genes and can be bare, flocculated, velourised, brushed or even-haired.
With the exception of smooth cloaks, those who have been borne with fur can loose their own coat over the years. The members of the race have a lean and muscle body. Peterbald's are gentle, loving, tranquil, inquisitive, wise and vigorous. Peterbald lives in typical Harmony with other animals and animals, but also with them. Peterbald was bred in the second half of 1994 in St. Petersburg, Russia, the outcome of an experiential breeding of a Don Hairless (also known as Don Sphynx, Donskoy or Donsky) males called Afinogen Mythos and an Asian Shorthair World Champion called Radma von Jagerhov, by the famous fieldinologist Olga S. Mironova from Russia.
Three Peterbald cats were born in the first two litters: Those four Peterbalds were the founder of the race. 1996 the race was introduced in the SFF ( "Russian Selective Cat Federation") and provided with a PBD (standard and abbreviation). Further used grips of the race are PTB, PD and PSX. Today the race is developing towards contemporary eastern and thai type, i.e. a long catch, large stepped off ear, shallow cheek bones and an graceful long legend.
Therefore, all breeding conditions for this race promote breeding with eastern and thai kittens and semi-longhaired males ("Balinese" and "Javanese"). Peterbald was admitted to the American Cat Fanciers Association (ACFA) in August 2008 with effect from 1 May 2009. Since May 2008 TICA awards the "brush coat" Peterbald for the championship contest.
