At the beginning of the twentieth century, at cat shows that took place in America, one could see representatives of the breed disappearing at that time called Mexican Hairless. The last pair of these animals existed before the 1930s, but they had no offspring left. Those cats that exist today are mutating animals bred as a result of breeding work.
