Skinderlop History

The Skinderlop cat is a relatively new breed of hairless cat originating around December of 2012. The Skinderlop is created by crossing a Sphynx cat with a Scottish Fold. As a result, this hybrid cat is almost hairless and has folded ears. Skinderlops are intelligent, friendly cats that are agile and have personality plus. They respond well to being handled and are very interactive, social cats.

The International Cat Association, The Cat Fanciers Association and the American Cat Fanciers Association have not yet recognized this breed.
