Peterbalds generally are sweet tempered but highly energetic felines. These fur babies are curious! We affectionately call them high maintenance cats, not because of the grooming needs, but because they love attention constantly and are curious constantly! Peterbalds cats, prior to approximately age two, may have a soft, almost cashmere, like, fuzzy coat. After that, true baldness can occur. However, due to breeding with not only Oriental shorthairs, but also long hairs well, some fuzz can remain. Peterbalds are wonderful cats, just absolute love bugs. And climbers, and jumpers. And inquisitive. In addition, they maintain a higher body heat, therefore they can eat more and retain their sleek slender look.
