The Peterbald is a Russian breed that dates back to the late 80s/early 90s.
The first Peterbald came as a result of mating between a Russian Donskoy (Don Hairless) and an Oriental Shorthair.
Much like the Donskoy cat, it possesses a dominant gene responsible for its hairless appearance.
Peterbalds can cost anywhere between $1,000-$3,000, which is why it snuck into the top 5 in our list of the most expensive cat breeds in the world.
The Peterbald is known for its affectionate personality, often claiming a home on your lap. They also tend to be quite intelligent.
However, those who plan to own Peterbalds must play close attention to how children handle the cat, as its skin can be very sensitive.
Additionally, this breed cannot stay out in the sun too long because it is vulnerable to sunburn.
