Peeve feels like suede over his entire body, except for the striped area between his eyes and ears. Here he is totally bald and almost feels "sticky?" If the light catches him just right, he reminds me of Mrs. Frankenstein, with her white stripes going up her coiffure. Remember her? Here maybe some pictures would describe this better........ Just curious if this type of marking or coat variation is usual on a Sphynx. Oh, and did I mention......Peeve loves his baths. He is such a good kitty.
