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...

    Bad/good ways to hold Sphynx cats?

    This has been going on for a little while now, but I just wanted to make sure of this before consulting the person about the behavior. Around April-ish is when this began to form. This was 3 months after we had gotten Artemis (the sphynx in this situation) and she had been doing fine. This...

    Question--metal litter box

    so Astrid plastic box smells DISGUSTING. So that's being tossed lol but I was thinking a metal one would work better to keep clean and the metal wouldn't absorb the smell. Do any of you guys have one or know where to get one?? Or where to get big baking pans that have sides??

    Sphynx Cats and Baseboard Heating

    Hi, I am in the process of hopefully getting a sphynx. I am curious if the cats will try and get close to the baseboard heaters and if they do how would I stop them from getting burned/hurt? The metal outside of mine get quite warm to the touch and they are very hot if you touch the open part...
