    Raw diet delivery?

    Hi everyone!! I just wanted to check in and see if anyone had any recommendations for anywhere that ships raw pet food? We had a local place we loved, but have recently moved (or are in the process of moving) out of state from there. I'm going to be looking around for somewhere local again as...

    Why can't I keep Noodle clean!?

    My little Noodle ends up just as dirty as he was before bath time by the next day. Its the most noticeable on the white area under his neck. Its hard to tell from the picture, but its seriously less than 24 hours after bathing that he looks dirty again! He's always been on a raw diet, which...

    Do I need to add supplements?

    Hey everyone! I've been using this local raw feeds store for the past few months and the boys love it! I add a taurine supplement per our vets recommendation , but I'm wondering if I should add anything else to the mix. There foods come 80% meat 10% organ and 10% bone in a variety of flavors...

    No one is sleeping!

    Hey everyone! Its been a few months since we brought Noodle home. Things were pretty okay between them. They weren't best friends yet, but got along well. The last month or so I feel like Soup has been generally grumpy, and now wants nothing to do with Noodle. Which has been extra unfortunate...

    Shoulder lump...

    I thought with Noodle being our second sphynx I wouldn't be all over this place in need of advice, but I'm already on my 3rd thread. Soup didn't give us many issues at all, but sweet Noodle is throwing us curve balls. His sensitive skin bumpies are clearing up with our consistency, however we...

    Normal part of introduction phase, or not?

    Soup and Noodle have been doing better together than expected. They were asleep next to each other by the end of day 1. But Soup seems to be getting more assertive of his dominance now. There is no hissing or growling, but he'll pounce Noodle and bite down on him, usually both the front and back...

    Sensitive skin??

    Noodle had his first check up and the vet seemed a little concerned about his skin. He came home from the breeder with a some little red bumps on his back and belly area. (First 2 pictures) He said to just bathe him frequently and see if that clears it up and if not he might just be a little...

    How much do I feed??

    I'm switching to raw and found a local place that makes it and I'm looking to order, however I just wanted to double check how much to feed him at 8, almost 9 months. He's already almost 10 pounds but not overweight, just large. Do I still do 4% of his current weight since he's a kitten, or 2%...

    Please cross your fingers and paws for us!

    Our journey to finding Soup Louie a little brother has been far from easy. We decided on a sweet little seal and white boy, paid our deposit and where begining to plan his gotcha day, when there was an accident with his mom rolling over him while he was wrapped up in a blanket. We were...

    Gone before gotcha day..

    My poor little baby I just resevered a few weeks ago got wrapped up in his blanket last night, and mom laid on him and he crossed the rainbow bridge. If it would have just been one of the 2 he would have been big enough to get out, but both was too much. I couldn't be a breeder. My heart hurts...

    Crazy cat mom story..

    I'm too embarrassed to admit this is how last night went to anyone and I told my boyfriend to pretend it never happened, but I feel like you will all understand/appreciate/be amused by this.. So, last night I'm eating leftovers on the couch cause it was a long work day and I was exhausted. It...

    Kitten stopped eating. Help??

    So, in a nutshell, my 5 month old Soup Louie has thrown up twice this week, not directly after eating. Its just normal looking cat puke. He is completely fine other wise. Still running around, drinking water, playing like a maniac. Maybe going to the bathroom a little less, but that's it. He's...

    Falling victim to the potato chip effect...

    These cats need to come with a warning! My boyfriend is lucky our apartment limits you to 2 cats or he'd be sleeping on the couch and I'd have a bed full of sphynx snuggles by this time next year. The first picture is an updated picture our baby Soup Louie, who is about to be the best cat...

    Seal and white?

    Okay, I'm going color crazy and google is no help! Everytime I think I grasp what this means I see something that contradicts what I thought I knew so I'm deferring to you all I have my eye on a kitten that was born thermal. Within a few weeks he looked blue and white. Few more weeks and he's...

    Switching dry foods/normal growth questions from a new mom!

    Our new baby has been home for about 2 weeks now, and I've accumulated some questions for all you pros out there that came up after our vet trip. We go back for more shots soon, but I figured I could get some ideas from you all too! 1. I have not seen him touch the dry food he was eating with...

    How do you survive until gotcha day?! (And other beginers questions)

    Hey all! Our new baby will be home 1/4/19. It feels like forever, but I'm sure it will be here in no time. Before I delve into specifcs, I want to start with some basic questions just to get some general ideas.. 1. What items do we need to have ready when he comes home? (Food aside, I'm going to...

    Expecting 1/4/19!

    Hi there! My name is Sam, and my family and I just reserved our first sphynx! He looks like he's going to be a red tabby. His name will be Soup Louie, (there is a reason for the strange name, I swear) Louie for short. He will be ready to come home the first weekend of January, and we are all so...
