So about 6 months ago I received a coffee table book of cats. While going through it, I found the Sphynx page. But the next day I found the Russian Don cats. And while going through the characteristics of them, I think my boy fits a Russian don more than a regular Sphynx.
Does anyone have any suggestions on figuring out how to tell if he really is or not?
Thanks!

Usually, you can tell by their looks. They, do look different.
Do you have any pictures, you can post? What does the papers say
he is?

I didn't get any papers, the lady I got him from was cookey, so I was just trying to rescue him. But he's got a lot of wrinkles, and he's smaller than other sphynxs I've seen, and he sprouts tiny hairs, that you can only see when he's profiled in the light, during the winter. And he's got the pouchy belly.
