They're often mistaken as a dog because of their small body that resembles Chihuahua, a small dog breed. The first hairless cat was found in 1996 by the name Prune but died without having any descendants. One year after that, a longhaired mother cat along with her hairless kittens were rescued in Toronto. One of the kittens were brought to Europe and was bred to a Devon Rex which resulted with some hairless offsprings.

The very clear characteristics that differentiate an hairless cat with any other cats is from their lack of coat which sometimes exhibit a curly shape.
