No cat breed is more divisive than the hairless variety. People usually fall on one side of the fence – they adore them or abhor them. Here at Backyard Cat Enclosures we embrace all kitty kinds and cat breeds – hairless cats are no exception! These bald wonders are actually some of the most affectionate and loyal pudda beans you will ever meet. Let’s boop heads with a few of them!   

canadian sphynx


The best known of the hairless weirdos, Sphynx cats are notoriously affectionate and fun-loving. These loveable lumps of peach fuzz skin are sweet on their hoomans and can often be found plastered to your side or watching everything you do with big, intense eyes. Originating from a bald feline freak named Prune in 1966, the Sphynx cat quickly became the most popular hairless cat breed available to smoothly snuggle.

These mysterious puddas are also known as the Don Sphynx, the Russian Hairless, the Russian Donskoy and the Don Hairless. A Russian cat breeder with a keen eye for weird spotted a hairless cat on the streets of Rostov-on-Don and developed this robust eastern bloc pudda. Pobeditel!

Ukrainian Levkoy

Ukrainian Levkoy

The Ukrainian Levkoy is a double whammy weirdo. Not only is it gloriously hairless, it also has the cutest folded ears! Created by crossbreeding Donskoy hairless cats with the wee bairn Scottish Fold cat breed, this hairless nugget is splendidly strange looking.

The Peterbald Beauty


The double agent of the hairless cat world, the Peterbald cat breed can be born with or without hair! Most Peterbalds lose the majority of their hair over time but some retain a velvet like coat into their adult years. Peterbald kitties resemble oriental shorthairs in stature and can come in all coat colours and markings. Destined for rarity and greatness, these Russian spies are the result of selective breeding between a hairless Donskoy and an Oriental shorthair world champion.


Have these weird and wonderful hairless cats snuggled into your heart yet? Purr-haps you prefer a full head of hairball? No matter, the fur-bulous thing about cats is that there is a breed to suit everyone!
