Sphynx, Canada's hairless cat, arose from a mutation in the 1960s. Crossbreeding with shorthair cats created a healthy gene pool. Some have partial hair.
Bambino, a tiny hairless cat, results from sphynx and munchkin crossbreeding. Some have partial fur on face, ears, legs, tail, while others are hairless.
Donskoy, Russian hairless cat, differs from sphynx. Hairlessness in Donskoy comes from a dominant gene. Some grow temporary winter coats and shed them when it warms up.
Dwelf, a compact, hairless cat, results from munchkin, American curl, and sphynx crosses. Mutations lead to elf-like appearance, health concerns, but strong family bond.
Crossing a sphynx and an American curl yields the elf cat, larger dwelf version. They are friendly, playful with soft skin like peach fuzz, and may have light hair patches on ears, nose, paws, or tail.
Lykoi, the werewolf cat, may not be fully hairless. Some have black-gray coats, others are mostly hairless. Commonly, they lack hair around the face, ears, legs, and feet.
Minskin, short-legged, hairless cat, results from munchkin-sphynx crossbreeding. Sparse fur on body, especially at points (nose, ears, legs, tail), with mostly hairless bellies.
Peterbald, elegant and long-limbed, from Donskoy-Oriental shorthair cross. Not all hairless; some have downy coat shed or kept for life. Occasional full-coat births.
Sphynx breeders create new hybrids like sphynxiebob by using hairless mutation. Sphynx-American bobtail cross emerged in 2015, resembling sphynx with tail variation.
The Ukrainian Levkoy has a hairless body and folded ears, resulting from Donskoy-Scottish fold crossbreeding. They boast a unique appearance and are often friendly and amicable with other pets.
