Don Sphynx Picture

Don Sphynx cat - photo copyright Gunnel Hedberg

The Don Sphynx is the Russian hairless cat. It is similar to the Sphynx cat breed that was developed in North America. The hairlessness is due to a dominant genetic mutation. The mutation is due to a recessive gene for the USA/Canadian Sphynx. This cat has several alternative names, one of which is "Donsky". It is an average sized cat. Sphynx cats are intelligent and athletic. The Donsky likes to be picked up...and warmed up! The breed is recognized by the European cat association, the Fédération International Féline. As can be seen in the photograph this cat is meant to have prominent cheekbones and the whiskers can be broken off. Click here to read and see more.
