10 Rarest Cat Breeds (Slideshow)

  • 2 of 11

 

1. Peterbald

Recently developed in Russia, the Peterbald is an intelligent and playful breed with plenty of affection and enthusiasm to go around. 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.

stop the insanity, every time one of these GMO cats is purchased a shelter cat dies. plus breeders sell unneutered cats unlike your local rescue group. DONT BUY! rescue, spay and neuter

They're all lovely, although I don't like the way that more short-legged breeds are being developed. I wonder what the difference is between the Peterbald and the Sphynx?

I never heard or seen pictures of these breeds I was really impressed by the California Spangled
