Hey guys! New to the sphynx fam but curious as to all of the things that everyone uses when it comes to their sphynx and more importantly.. their butts. As I'm transitioning my baby onto a new food (Instinct limited ingredient/turkey) from royal canin gi my baby's poop is moosh. Although I can't say it was very firm to begin with at any point because when I first got him his poop was literal soup and whatever food he was on just wasn't doing it for his delicate nature.. sorry for these mental images. Now, with getting him on track, he's finally using his litter box but what is everyone using? I could tell he wasn't loving the tidy cat's litter because the little granules would stick to his feet and get in his toe cracks so I've switched to Vibrant Life paper pellets. The upside is I flush that crap down the toilet (haha), the downfall is the mix of his urine with the pellets stinks to high heaven of ammonia in a big bad way. Anyone got any special secrets to help keep the smell to a minimum? I currently scoop the poop almost immediately, it's that bad, and I freshen up his litter every few days with a complete change about once a week. What's everyone's secret and special way they keep their room with a litter box fresh? Any tips or tricks? Thanks!
