Petersburg (St. Petersburg Sphinx): all about the breed
|Recognized by organizations||SFF, TICA, WCF|
The Petersburg Sphinx, or Peterbold, as the name implies, appeared in the Northern capital of Russia, St. Petersburg, in the 90s of the 20th century.
Some consider the St. Petersburg Sphinxes the embodiment of elegance, some frown with disgust. Like all sphinxes, peterbalds are cats for everybody. However, the St. Petersburg sphinx can be both bald (fully or partially), and “fur”.
Petersburgers are sociable, affectionate cats, ready to be friends with the whole world. However, they are quite talkative.
Like all sphinxes, peterbalds require special care. This is worth considering when deciding to get an exotic pet.
