Ukrainian levkoy is relatively young breed. The first specimens of this breed were bred in Ukraine by the felinologist Biryukova Elena Vsevolodovna. Currently, the St. Petersburg Island Of Love cattery is the leader among catteries of this breed, in which selective work on Ukrainian levkoy continues.
The breed was created by crossing the Scottish Fold cats, from which the Feline gene passed, and the Don Sphynx, from which the cats received a gene responsible for the lack of hair. Characteristic features of the breed: a muscular body with a narrow oval breast, a slightly upwardly bent back line, strong and fairly long paws, the head when viewed from above forms a pentagon smoothed at the corners, and the profile has a stepped appearance with almost parallel lines of the forehead and nose.
