Please give us your choice of cat food. If you have a specific reason for a particular brand, please explain.
Hmm.. that's interesting. I feed my cats Royal Canin. I used to feed my cats Iams before I found out how bad of a product they make. My dog almost died from eating Iams dog food.science diet is the best,i heard it produces less hair on a sphynx.sounds crazy to me,ive heard that from two breeders.
My kitties also grow more fur over the winter. They have just recently lost the extra fur. It is because of the weather because that happens to cats naturally anyway. As far as a type of food making a cat gain/loose far.. never heard of that.How would one food influence hair/fur over another? We use Iams and our kitty did grow a bunch of fur over the winter. We attributed this to the environment (it was her first winter).
No I don't still feed Iams to my cats. When I weaned them off of it I didn't noticed any difference in their hair. And as far as Royal Canin, Baby Cat food is different than Kitten food. They do also have a kitten food too.I have been told by two breeders and found some things online ( on other breeder sites) if you think about it, it makes sense Iams says it gives a great healthy coat. Do you still feed it to your sphynx? If not did you find hair loss when you stopped? If you are still are feeding the Iams try something else and see what the out come is and please let us know!
Even though she would find a sunny spot or curl up in her many blankets, our house overall is much cooler in the winter than in the summer so she definately experiences a temperature change. I will let you know what happens if we ever change her food!I know females can grow hair when in heat or while nursing, but winter causing it seems odd because they always find a warm spot anyway and are indoors so how cold can they be?
Yeah, I'm so glad there is a Sphynx forum! :tinysmile_fatgrin_thmm I just went by what I have heard I guess thats why places like this forum are good we can all put our heads together! I really like the baby food idea, I need to look into that before new babies are here! But I have to say I do love science diet?
