Sassy, one of my top Peterbalds, had her babies yesterday. 7 beautiful Peterbald kittens!

Most look "white looking" - what color is the darker one (or will be?) - 2 of them look like they will have hair.

The white ones are pointed (develop their points later). Peterbalds are a hair losing breed. Most are born with fuzz and lose that fuzz as they get older. One in this litter is a straight coat - the real fuzzy white one.

The darker one is a chocolate tabby.

Thanks! Yeah, he will be a straight coat. Regular coated cat with the type and color of a Siamese with the Peterbald Personality. I won't know what color his points will be for a few weeks. This is a repeat breeding and produced Flame Points and Seal Points in the last litter.

wow! that is really fascinating! I had no idea that could happen. So, do those babies go for a lesser price cause they're furry? Can they be bred and produce bald Peterbalds? do you ever get a furry one that isn't pointed? so for all the questions, I just think that is really neat. Ok, one more question: how do you describe the personality of a Peterbald vs that of a Siamese?

I was so curious about Peterbald cats that I had to go visit your website. MY GOODNESS they are so pretty! I have never been a sphynx fan but these cats are totally gorgeous. It's like their build and muscles are what make them lovely & elegant.

I just have never seen such an unusual cat before. Your babies are so precious too! Congrats! <3 Please keep posting pics as they grow!

What color are the parents - how do you know the "white" ones will all be pointed unless both parents are pointed or carrying pointed. One has to be a solid color carrying points if you have a chocolate and a white in there. The rest all can't be pointed.

And even if the parents are carrying points not ALL the kittens will be pointed.

Both parents carry points. This is a repeat breeding. Neither have ever produced a white - they have produced chocolates, seal points, flame points, and tabby.

Thank you so much! I have been breeding Peterbalds for a long time now. I am the longest active breeder in the U.S. and still have the first Peterbald in the U.S. She is retired and living the life of luxury now.

I had Sphynx and Siamese in the past (at different times). The Peterbald combined that wonderful elegant look with the hairlessness of the Sphynx. They are absolutely a beautiful breed. Long and elegant

The straight coats can be used in a good breeding program, but don't carry the hairless gene. I have used some outstanding ones in the past and have one young male now that will be used, as well. The Peterbald uses the Oriental Shorthair and Siamese as an outcross, so the straight coats are still common in litters. They look a lot like Oriental Shorthairs.

The personality of a Peterbald is EXTREME people focus. They are very very interactive with their owners - fetch, come when called, etc... They love to cuddle, but are very active and athletic. They, usually, do not have the Siamese voice, but are vocal. It depends on the lines. If a Siamese is close in the ancestry, you can get that Siamese voice.

If you look on my site, these babies are Sassy and Endy's. The last breeding produced some top show cats.

I, usually, place the straight coats in pet homes for a much lower price. Once people see them, though, they LOVE them. I will find a picture of my young male straight coat and post it here in a few minutes.

Ok so they are colored parents carrying the pointed gene? I'm surprised that you don't have more solid colors and will get that many pointed kittens in the end.

If they are carrying pointed, that is recessive and the dominate colors SHOULD be the majority.


Also which association recognizes them for showing? Just TICA?

The Mom is a Seal Point.

They have championship status in TICA.

The last breeding had some solid chocolates. There is not a white cat in the genetic line of either cat.

This is a quick video that I did for a family that was getting two kittens from me at the same time. The male kitten is a Flame Lynx Point. He is 4 months old in the video. The girl is a Tortie. She is only 9 weeks old in the video, so is much smaller.

They both are doing wonderful with their new family now. In this video, they both still have some peach fuzz on them. They will both be hairless as adults. Thought this would help show a Peterbald kitten better than just pictures:

There are a few videos that I have up on the Peterbald and the Bramble on youtube. Just put Magnoliachat in the search and they will come up.
