A Friendly and Playful Cat

Active, Affectionate, Elegant

This breed originated in the 1990s from a mix of a Don Hairless or Sphynx like cat and an Oriental cat. These hairless cats became to be the Peterbalds. These extremely friendly cats are very outgoing and love to play. They are intelligent, affectionate, loyal, and devoted to their owners. These graceful cats get along very well with children and other household pets. They are ideal companions for families with children and pets, singles with other pets, and apartment dwellers. Grooming is minimal.
