All of our kittens are registered with TICA, Vaccinations up to date, and vet checked before leaving.
Ultra Bald kittens are born without hair and never grow any. Their soft skin is warm and sticky to the touch with no whiskers or eyebrows. They prefer a massage to stroking.
Flock or Chamois Peterbalds are 90% hairless with no visible hair and feel smooth to the touch. These silken-skinned cats have no coat resistance when you stroke them and no sense of stickiness. They may have down on the extremities while their whiskers and eyebrows will be kinked, curled, and/or broken.
The Velour cat is 70% hairless with a coat up to 1mm in length. It looks completely hairless from a distance but has some resistance when stroked. When sparse, the skin is clearly visible but if dense, the coat shines giving the cat a sleek look. As these cats age, the Velour coat may change to a Flock/Chamois coat.
Brush coats have wiry hair ranging from barely wavy to almost curly with an irregular texture and are up to 5mm long. A kitten with a light brush may change to a bald coat by age 2 but kittens with a heavy, dense brush will always have a brush coat. The whiskers are always curled or kinked.
Straight coated Peterbalds do not have the hair loss gene and have short close-lying coats and normal, straight whiskers.
