The Peterbald originated in Russia in the 1980’s from a cross between a Donskoy and an Oriental Shorthair. The primary feature is the lack of coat, though it may have down or even a brush coat. It is a medium-sized cat, elegant and, beautifully balanced, with head, ears and neck carried on a long, svelte, well-muscled body, supported on slender legs, with feet and tail in proportion. The head and profile should be wedge-shaped, neither round nor pointed. The expression is alert and intelligent. Males are generally larger than females.
