Blue Belle's Peterbald Kittens
(October 5, 2011 — SOLD)

One-month-old flock-coated male Peterbald kitten with bat-wing ears

Three Kittens Born on October 5, 2011 (SOLD)

Three 2-week-old Peterbald kittens playing in bed

Blue Belle had a litter of three kittens on October 5, 2011: a straight-coated female kitten and two flock-coated male kittens. (The larger of the flock-coated kittens started off with a brush coat but subsequently lost most of the brush coat.)

The dam was our Champion, Blue Belle, the best blue-point Peterbald in TICA in 2009-10.The sire was Supreme Grand Champion KREMLINCATS Chilly Vasily, the top-ranked Peterbald in TICA in 2008-09. He is a blue-point and white.

All of the kittens are blue-point, as would be expected from a pairing of two blue-point cats. The kittens appear to have inherited Blue Belle's gray body color and Chilly Vasily's better ear placement.

All three kittens have outgoing personalities and meow at us whenever we enter the room.

Coat Types and Color/Pattern are not Guaranteed

Coat types and color/pattern are not guaranteed. Peterbald cats have a hair loss gene, which can cause their coat types to change as they get older. For example, Blue Belle started off with a brush coat, but lost most of it during her pregnancy and is now considered as having a flock coat. One of the flock-coated kittens started off with a brush coat but lost most of the brush coat as he matured.

The straight-coated kitten probably does not have a copy of the Peterbald hair loss gene. Initially we thought that she might have a copy of this gene, as her belly was completely naked when she was born and her tail had a brush coat. But she has since then grown fur on her belly, making it much less likely that she carries the hair loss gene.

The following pictures show the differences between the three coat types. Note that the brush-coated kitten lost most of the brush coat by 8 weeks and is now considered to be a flock-coated kitten.

Notice how the brush-coated and flock-coated kittens have gray body color. The straight-coated kitten's fur is still white, but is starting to turn gray. Notice the darker gray stripe along the spine.
