Does any one have any knowledge about Peterbalds (the Russian Sphynx; NOT the Canadian/North American Sphynx, which is more common)? What are their temperaments/personalities like? What sort of care do they require?
I have been looking into the breed and I know that they have Oriental Shorthair in their background, which is the breed of my 2 kittens. In my explorations, I met a Peterbald breeder. She has just let me know that a kitten has come available. He was going to be used by her as a breeder but he has a thick cornea (?) and his eyes are different colours. He will not have terrible vision but it won't be 20/20, so she won't be breeding him.
He is adorable but I'm afraid of how the social hierarchy will change if I move from 2 to 3 cats. Fortunately, both of my cats are young (under 1 year of age) and pretty laid back. However, I would feel terrible if one cat was picked on mercilessly by the others. Any advice??
