Despite their name, not all Peterbalds are born hairless — some with hair, though, can lose it over time. These slim and graceful felines are quite rare across the globe.

Breeding & buying cats is beyond stupid. Unless you are a snob (or heartless), go to a local shelter and save a kitty's life, instead of giving your money to greedy, elitist, fat breeders.
