More details about the Peterbald

Peterbald: Origins and history

Derived from the crossbreeding of a Donskoy and an Oriental Shorthair, the Peterbald was created in 1994 by Olga S. Mironova, a Russian breeder living in St. Petersburg. She wanted to create a cat whose oriental traits could be emphasised by a lack of fur. The breed was named after its hometown. Although cross breeding between Donskoy and Orientals is now banned, the Don's Sphynx is now a well established new naked breed.

Peterbald: Purchase price

The average price for a Peterbald is approximately £750. Their price varies depending on their hair type, lineage (parental pedigree) and age.
It costs on average £30/ month to provide for their needs, in order to purchase quality bedding and food.

    If straight haired at birth, the coat doesn't change as it means they din't get the hair loss gene. Can suffer with separation anxiety so do not keep a Peterbald as a lone pet.
