    Hi everyone, I'm new to the sphynx lair and I'm in the process of adopting a sphynx. He won't be ready till February as he isn't even born yet lol but I've done tons of research to educate myself about sphynxes to understand them and see what would be best for them. I've read that a lot of...

    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. He eats fine and we've had a fecal test and parasite tests done and the vet says he's perfectly healthy and probably just has a sensitive stomach...

He does well on it and his poops are nice and normal, but he poops multiple times a day and it is excessivley stinky. Like, really, really bad. My other cat is a DSH and poopa once or twice a day...

    Behavioral issue? Meowing before and after pooping

    Hi! I have a sphynx cat that likes to announce his poops before and after going. He has been to the vet and has a clean bill of health in terms of his kidneys, body weight, blood testing and general check up. This cat eats a raw diet with limited ingredients, mostly because his brother has IBD...

    Loose Stool and Grain Free food?

    I feel like a broken record. I'm sure everyone is tired of hearing me B**ch about my cats poop. He has finished his second treatment for Giardia. I'm not convinced he even has it anymore. I'm starting to think its a food issue. So I've taken some advice from fellow larians. I'm attempting to...

    Poop smears in the sheets

    Hello! I just signed up for this community because I'm becoming increasingly desperate with regards to a certain poop problem. From the looks of things, poop problems seem to be a common issue with the sphynx breed. Anyway.. I have had to resort to using huuuuuge litter chunks (currently...

    Hi guys, I recently switched my 14week old kitten from Royal Canin (breeder to blame) to Candidae kitten formula and he's been pooping more than usual. Not only is he pooping more, he's also been farting more. And both of them smell SO bad. Could it be the food change or has anyone had similar...

    Cat pooping on tail

    does anyone else have the problem of your cat pooping on its tail or stepping in its own poop, I'm not sure how to stop this but he runs around the house with poop on his tail if I don't notice it right away and I'm worried it's going to get onto the furniture

    Primal freeze dried/frozen raw reviews?

    Hi there, I'm thinking of feeding my future Sphynx kitten Primal raw for 2 main reasons: cutting down the poop smell/issues and for overall health. Would you recommend this brand? It looks easy to prepare the portions and seems nutritious. What experiences have you had feeding this to your Sphynx?

    breeze litter box?

    I've had many friends recommend the breeze litter system to me since it is a lot less smelly, and there is no litter that will be tracked around the house. My kitten was using scoop away before I bought her, so I bought that for her to use and placed it next to the breeze. I'm trying to...
