Each cat breeds Assur O’Poil – Donskoy
. History and origins
The Donskoy, also known as the “Russian Sphynx”, is a cat found in 1988 and originated in Russia.
A blue cream woman found on the streets of Rostovune had many depilated plaques: she was called Varya.
At first, a woman (Irina Kovaloyva) who adopted her thought the animal was sick. Giving birth to a litter of hairless superstitions, she realized that it was in fact a genetic modification.
She then decided to introduce Varya to a Russian breeder, Irina Nemikina.
After several crosses, and many hairless superstitions found in each litter, she realized that this mutation had nothing to do with the one responsible for the nudity of the Sphynx. A new breed was then created: the Donskoy.
Today, the Donskoy has international recognition. His atypical appearance attracts the world.
