   People and cats have associated  together for thousands of years


 It all started between 1500 and 1600 BC, cats were first domesticated in Egypt.


 Feline names and personalities  were given to both the God of Fertility and the God of war.


Images of felines can be found on statues and vases of the early Greek and Roman Empire.


They were worshiped and thought to bring good fortune.


Later in history cats became valued as mousers. They were thought to keep rodents and disease under control.


By the early 1970's cats were becoming a popular pet. They soon exceeded the number of Dogs kept as pet.




  Donskoy


Donskoy cats are a mostly hairless breed. They originated in Rostov-on-Don Russia in 1987.


Elena Kovaleva rescues the kitten from children on the street.


At first the kitten was thought to be sick, but it was later revealed to have a dominant genetic mutation.


This mutation effected the hair suppression genetics.


   Peterbald


Peterbalds were soon created in St. Petersburg Russia in 1994.


This was done by crossing a Donskoy, with a Siamese, and Oriental cats.


 This created the first Peterbald, a sometimes hairless cat with a Oriental look.


 They are a very slender and athletic cat.


 Peterbalds have a big personality and a voice to go with it.
