The Peterbald

The Russian mix from hairless cat and an Oriental Shorthair

This breed originated in Russia in the 1990s, the result of a mating between a hairless cat and an Oriental Shorthair. Over time, the breed was developed to introduce Siamese type, which is evident in the long, narrow head, almond-shaped eyes, and alert ears that are set widely apart. The Peterbald’s tail is quite long, and his webbed feet have earned him a reputation as a break-in artist—the Peterbald is known to grasp objects and even open doors with those paws.
