Vetstreet.com: 5 Popular Breeds of Hairless Cats and Dogs

Peterbald

This unusual Russian breed originated in the city of St. Petersburg as the offspring of a Don Sphynx (also known as a Don Hairless) and an Oriental Shorthair. These cats come in all colors and patterns recognized by the American Cat Fanciers Association and four coat types: The Ultrabald is born completely hairless, with soft skin that's sticky to the touch. The Chamois, or Flock, also has soft skin, with little to no visible hair (some cats have slightly longer or more dense fur on the legs, tail and face). The Velour variety has soft hair covering his entire body that may be sparse or dense, ranging in length from 1 millimeter to 5 millimeters. The Brush coat is unlike any other breed: Some of their coats are fine, with both long and short hairs, while others are heavier, with a dense, wiry and irregular texture. Whiskers are always kinky, curly or broken in appearance.
