Hiya, we are just weeks away from getting our new sphynx baby- Norbert- he is currently 3 weeks and will be on Purina ONE kitten food which we want to ween him off of for multiple reasons:

1) COVID-19 makes it near impossible to actually get this specific one
2)its high in grain- which we know from previous experience is a recipe for disaster
3)we are firm believers in the raw diet alongside feed on demand

We want to give him the true instinct raw bites but obviously he needs a dry food/ kibble to accompany this. Any recommendations?

Welcome to sphynxlair! Such an exciting time ahead of you with Norbert Gotcha Day coming close.
With raw food it's better not to feed him kibbles to. When you want to feed kibbles and raw food it's important there is always 2-3 hours between the raw food and the kibbles to avoid tummy issues

ok so would that be three hours before or three hours after or three hours before and after making a total of six hours? :)

Three hours before and after.

For kibble I recommend Instinct brand as they put the percentage of neat right on the front of the package. But if you are going to feed something in addition to raw it is better to feed canned.
