Non-shedding Cat BreedsAmerican Shorthair kittens

Snowshoe catNon-shedding cat breeds have become quite desirable and fashionable lately. To be clear, all animals - including people- shed not just hairs but skin cells.  So what we are talking about here is an assortment of cats that won't be leaving their fuzzy mark on every couch and sweater in the joint. The Sphinx cat is not only hairless, but also exquisitely shaped and often quite cuddly. Naturally, hairless and non-shedding go hand and hand, but some curly haired cat breeds are non or very low-shedding as well and in some cases prove to be less irritating to folks with allergies. See also hypoallergenic cat breeds if this is a factor for you. Among these non-shedding cats the Peterbald cat, the LaPerm and the Don Sphynx have both furred and hairless individuals within the breed. Cats without hair are usually the result of a mutation and breed development requires lots of planning and care on the part of breeders.
