Hey all, as I've never owned a Sphynx before I was hoping to get some insight, Ive done alot of reading and I know Sphynx need to eat more than normal cats due to their high metabolism. So I was just wondering how much do you feed your babies? Do they have set feeding times or do you just let them graze all day when they want?

I was just gonna leave some dry food out all day and give wet food maybe twice a day at meal times, but I dont want my little Loki getting fat. Any advice would be welcome :Smile:

Up until they are at least 8 months old, that is probably the most widely used method...Dry food available all day and wet twice a day...

Mine would eat 4 cans of wet a day if I let her!!!

I give them wet once a day and dry a few times a day.
Polar Bare is free fed.
I would free feed the others but they all eat different foods.

at least I'm thinking along the right lines haha. I assume its pretty hard for a Sphynx to get overweight but I just want to make sure i do the best for his health when he finaly arrives
