    Wet food question

    Evening fam. Just a quick question, how much of wet food do you give to a young sphynx cat (8 months say). I've always thought it's equal to a dry food portion. For instance, I give 30-40 gr of dry food per meal, but if I give the same amount of wet (canned) food, Osi seems still famished and...

    Supplements for Cats Over Age 10

    Hello Sphynx Lovers, What supplements do you feed your cats? Currently, I am working on a slow transition to raw food. She is not on raw food yet. Right now, she is eating kibble and wet food in separate bowls. I'm hoping to eliminate the kibble altogether and eventually transition the wet into...

    Cat Food: Canned vs. Pouch

    Hello Sphynx Lovers, I have finally been able to switch my baby from kibble to wet food, woohoo! However, I've been wondering what is the long term consequences of feeding her food that comes in an aluminum can. I was debating on switching to pouches, but I'm not sure of the long term effects...

    should I be giving my cats supplements?

    I feed my cats all organic raw meat I freeze it for three days before I dethaw and give it to them because I heard that that kills any bacteria that could be on it. I don't give them supplements because I didn't feel like I need to they don't get supplements in the wild and I was trying to mimic...

    Feeding questions!

    Hi everyone! I finally got my baby! I have some new questions about feeding. Has anyone used Costco brand cat food? My kitten came already eating it, but I had another high quality brand I wanted to get. I also read that it's good to keep dry kibble out all day, but this baby eats a TON. The vet...

    Raw food and vitamins?

    hi, i'm new to Sphynxlair. I have a 6 month old Donskoy that I am going to start feeding raw. Ground beef and chicken with turkey necks. Can I just give him a daily multi vitamin to make sure he is getting all his nutrients? It all seems so confusing!

    Question for those of you with an older cat and a kitten.

    Gotcha-Day for my baby isn't until the end of July, but I'm trying to prepare now. I've got an older cat (8ish, not sure because he was an adult when I adopted him), so I'm trying to figure out how the feeding situation is going to work. Right now, he gets a scoop of dry food when I go to bed...

    Does Anyone Feed Bone-in Raw?

    After raiding this great forum for information I've ventured out there (*points to that nebulous space call the interwebs*) and read as much about raw diets for cats as my brain could handle. I'm presently of two minds: 1. Ground Raw w/ Chunks This seems simple enough. Use the ratio, pick...

    Quantity of raw food

    Hi! I know I asked a similar question before but how much raw food should an almost 6 month old kitten be eating? While I love the fact this raw diet has completely solved any of Oliver's digestive issues, I find him frequently hungry ( or at least he is pretending to be!). I am feeding primal...
