Hello,
I'm Safira (Safi), my mum is a rubber bald Donskoy, but my dad is a Canadian sphynx. I really don't know what I am since there aren't a lot of cats like me. I look more like a Don, I have almond shaped eyes, and a tiny amount of fur which I guess will fall off. I look like other Donskoy kittens I saw on the web. My mom and dad had 3 more litters before me. All of my siblings are healthy, some have more hair than others but since none of my siblings is really a lot older I do not know will it fall off. One of my brothers had really long hair on his legs, but he lost almost all of it.

I would be really happy if somebody could help me figure out what will happend to me (in terms of my coat, personality ect.). :)

OMG Safira is a cutie. I am looking forward to seeing her grow up. As far as hair goes, we see some grow more at different times of the year and then lose it, so we never really can guess...lol. Here is a thread you might enjoy.

My sphynx cat is hairy and fuzzy! Why?

Thank you :)
Well I already read all of those threads :D
The thing is, she is a donskoy mix and donskoys have dominant genes so I guess it will go a little bit different than with a Canadian sphynx :,D

Welcome to sphynxlair for you and Safira. Safira is beyond adorable! I don't know what will happen with her fur-no fur. But I do know she will be a cute little girl, at some times a little devil and at some times a spoiled princess. But just at the moment she drives you crazy she turns into an adorable little angel again:).

I think that's a good guess ;)
Altough I think even when she'll be acting like a spoiled princess, she'll look a bit like a devil because of those almond eyes and black coat haha

@CookieCountess hello and welcome. Safira is absolutely adorable. Nobody will be able to predict exactly what her coat will look like in the future. You will love that cutie pie regardless.

Please continue to share her photos so we can all melt. :) Enjoy her, they grow up too fast.

Thank you ☺
Yes he is a yorkie, his name is Benny. At first he was so afraid of her, he didn't even want to be in the same room with her. That was werid because he gets along just fine with my brothers cat, but now they're great friends

Since as you mentioned Donskoy genes are dominant I'm assuming the little princess is going to grow up to look like a Donskoy, I love the little velevet covering she has and it might help avoid some of the health issues sphynxes have/keep her warmer however I haven't seen many adult Donskoys with much covering, they tend to be quite bald even more so than Canadians. I have 3 Donskoys myself, one for sure is a Peterbald mix but he mostly just looks like a normal Donskoy anyway, a bit longer/more slim and elegant looking maybe and has big bat ears, he's the black boy. My pink adult boy does grow a lighter cover of fuzz and shed it and get naked depending on the season. I have another one that has a verry short velour cover, he's just grown to full size and has always had it so far. Another boy who's 6 months old has furry paws and some fuzz on his face, also doesn't seem like he's going to shed it. One thing I noticed is I think my black boy and tabby got lighter colored as they grew, if she's going to shed she'll especially look lighter cause skin doesn't get quite as dark as black fur.
