Hairless Peterbald cats are unique. Only this breed has a few coat types. The coats may change as cats age. Peterbalds have "undressing gene" or another word hairless gene. This gene is dominant. Sphynx are genetically not relative to Peterbalds and Sphinx's gene is recessive. What does it mean? If over cross Spynx's with a usual domestic cat - all kittens in a litter will be with fur. If mate Peterbald with a straight coated cat, almost all kittens in a litter inherit the hairless gene. Peterbalds are an elegant, extremely intelligent and healthy breed.

Families & Pets
We are Peterbald breeder and believe that our cats are part of the family and deserve love. Peterbalds are friendly and faithful as dogs. They find harmony with other pets in your home. For example, a family with three small noisy children bought a girl kitten from our cattery. We worried that the kitten will not feel comfortable and also were afraid that kids could be scratched by her when they grab her roughly. Fortunately, the smart Peterbald adjusted a new environment and was never cruel to kids. Other three Peterbald boys were taken in a family with two dogs and a few other cats of a different breed. All tree Peterbalds chose the dogs. They sleep, play, and eat with them. As probably they think that they are dogs. (Joke).
