Hey everybody! Brand new to this place - and here's one of a few photos to follow of our new baby, Noodle!
She's coming up to her 6 months mark and she's an absolute doll - cuddly and affectionate, yet an absolute little monster when she wants to be. I adore her to bits. She's a baby to three mummies here, I'm mummy number 2!
I hope that I could get some advice and feedback here, if that would be okay?
I've of course come to understand that sphynx cats are notoriously smelly, from their poop to their farts - and our Noodle is no different. Her poops are solid and plentiful but they do stink to high heavens and I'm not sure how she hasn't managed to gas herself under duvets yet!
She's fed the following;
Royal Canin Second Age Kitten (the dry kibble stuff) 2 times a day
Royal Canin Kitten (wet food) in Sauce in the morning
Animonda Carny (interchanging between different cans) in the evening...
These foods choices are not my own - mommy number 1 chose them after Royal Canin was recommended by the breeder, however after some reading I'm feeling very uncertain about these choices and if they're any good. From a health point of view as well as a smell point of view.
Another thing I wanted some advice on is how often should we bathe her? She sleeps with me in particular at night under the duvet with me and we can both get pretty sweaty, and on her own builds up quite a bit of grime by the end of a week, so we're bathing her once a week (or, it's more of a rub down because she's so difficult to bathe and scratches us to pieces). Should we bathe her less regularly? Plenty of people seem to advise that it shouldn't be done too often as it can actually make them dirtier...
So... advice, please and thank you!
And here's some more photos!
Have a lovely weekend! xo
