    What to feed my sphynx?

    I went to a new vet recently who recommended cutting out dry food completely from my 2 year old Sphynx’s diet. She gave me a ton of data and information that proved dry food is essentially like chips for cats, and dry food makes sense for dogs but can be harmful to cats. I’ve tried weaning my...

    Chronic soft poop: dry food suggestions?

    Roquefort (the younger of my two cats) has had soft poop more or less since we got him. It's not watery but it's just always super soft and smelly.
