Shamira Hadara
born 1/11/2007
STATUS: She has gone to her new home!
A Hebrew name meaning "Adorned with beauty".
Born with a 'wooly', curly coat; she looked like a little black lamb.
At this stage, she is a brush coat. The brush is a kinky, wavy coat that has a coarse feel. She may still end up a velour coat (+/- 1/4" length) but, since she has a fair bit of hair inside her ears, she is not likely to lose all her coat.
The brush is a wonderfully unique coat; the only other breed that can have a brush coat is our foundation breed, the Donskoy.
She is a headstrong little one, and is very intelligent. She is outgoing and friendly, but certainly knows how to make sure her opinions are known!
Contact me for information!


Check out the new VIDEO page to see her in action!!

This may not be the best photo, but ere she is next to Cirin, an adult male PD, and you can see that she is still pretty small.

PD at play :)
Don't forget to check out the videos for more of Hadara in action!

This one shows her unique, brush coat. It is soft on her belly and and not soft on her back .

She is really quite dark black' I often have to lighten the photos quite a bit so you can see detail better.

This will probably be the last update to Hadara's page.

She is really sweet and very cute (but we already know I am bias ;) )

This little Peterbald had been reserved, and the family who had planned on adopting her had decided on a different kitten.
She is very intelligent and curious, and not quite as ...painfully affectionate as some Peterbalds can be. She is, however, still people oriented and sweet.

Brush/velour coat Peterbald kitten

Sort of funny photos, some of these, but I was really trying to catch what her coat really looks like in 'real life' and kept some of the mediocre photos that show it well...

See, perfect example LOL

She looks very black in person. The flash from the camera no longer shows her skin through her coat.

You can still see some brushy hair on this little Peterbald girl, and she will end up somewhere between a velour and a flock PD cat

Now, I know this isn't the clearest photo, but, really, this is what you see when you look at Hadara. The flash really shows much more of her skin than you ever see when looking at her in person. One of these days I may just have to take a video clip of her so you can see for yourself...

You can see the pattern of hair loss in her coat pretty well in this one.

She is a beautiful, mellow girl.

Her chin is excellent, but her profile will not be that nice, straight line that it needs to be for her to be show quality.

pet peterbald profile
It is not her 'hariness' that makes her pet quality. See the dip in the profile? Her nose should be a straight line from her brow to her nose. A slight dip can grow into a straight profile in time as the head lengthens. This one is just a little too deep. It will improve, but should not end up totally straight...

Well, I am not yet seeing any coat loss here, but we'll just keep watching over the next few weeks.
She will most likely end up a velour coat adult cat, which is not hairless but is a short fur that lacks an undercoat, sheds very little, and feels, well, sort of like the soft side of velcro.
I'll let you know if I start to see a different hair loss pattern~

OK, I left this one bigger so you can see more detail. She has a geat chin and her profile also looks good. Let's see how she develops!

 

A Peterbald?  Or a black sheep? lol
