    Hi everyone! So I'm love my new lil guy Bartholomew. The first couple of days he was great really relaxed and seemed great one night he really freaked out running pouncing skittish attacking everything going super crazy.

    Hi there, my sphynx Sueda is still only 10 weeks old. I give her half of a 3 oz can of wet food every 6 hours along with a good sized portion of goat milk poured over top.

    Getting bored of same food ?

    Have you found that once a Sphynx reaches one year old eating habits change ? That is rather than eating all food at once might turn into a grazer ? Also not interested in the same breakfast food every day but will eat a tin of something else (which I needed to do to make sure she had...

    How do your cats tell you when they're hungry?

    It seems they all have their methods. Smidget chastises me every time I look at her and Nym starts licking EVERYTHING in sight. The housemate's cats go into a frenzy when we walk by the cabinet holding their kibble, though they sometimes do that a mere hour after they've been fed, the...

    Raw vs dry?

    My girls have been eating Merrick both dry and wet food for the past year and a half. Aside from horrible smelling poop, there have been no issues. They both love it. However, I'm having trouble finding the food now. I think there may be distributor issues? I've been considering raw or perhaps a...

    Pet Store Foods

    I am brand new to this breed and I pick up my baby girl in 2 weeks. I've been attempting to do as much research as possible. I'm having a hard time deciding on a solid, healthy cat food. I cannot do a raw diet, as our lifestyle will not allow it. We travel in our RV for business and we need a...

    I have finally decided to make the switch to raw for Bane and Fluffy. I have plenty of extra time and I have done lots of research. However, a lot of the blogs I have read seem to contradict themselves. Some say not to feed cow and pork, while others say to feed cow and pork. Then others say...

    Blue Buffalo...may not be what it says it is.

    Our local vet just shared this link with me, and I thought it was important to pass on here since I know a lot of people use Blue Buffalo BECAUSE of the ingredients. http://www.petfoodhonesty.com/thecomplaint.php#.U2qZFVd7S1j Apparently they have been found to have grains etc. that they claim...

    Best Cat Food?

    Last week I picked up my new sphynx kitten. After doing some research online prior to picking him up I read that he should be on a diet that is predominantly free of grain, fillers, etc. At the pet store I read a ton of ingredients in a lot of different brands and Blue Buffalo's Kitten Formula...
