I have had my sphynx since December now and he is the greatest!! However I think I am at too much of an "old school" vet. When I took him in he's like "you know this was a disease back when I was in vet school" and I'm thinking, oh great he knows nothing about the breed. Now I know from the past from having dogs and regular house cats that they always have these rediculous standards for animal weights based on if you are looking at them from above and their stomach sticks out past their hip bones....blah blah blah...whatever...so anyways he goes on to tell me that I need to cut down his food atleast 15% because he is overweight and if he keeps on like this it is not going to be good. Now I am thinking this guy has no idea about the breed and that they are known for their "potbellys" So I am thinking yeah yeah...
These are medium sized cats or whatever and they are suppose to weigh fullgrown anywhere from 11-15 pounds, no?
Just freaks me out and want to make sure because he is a little chubby but...he is 12 pounds so I thought that was fine ??
