Food and Diet

Diet:

After you pick your kitten up from the breeder, you should keep your kitten on the same diet as your breeder.  You can switch your kitten later to a different type of food. However, when you change your kitten’s food, please remember to make change very slowly over 3 days or so mixing a tiny portion of the new food with the existing food and increasing the amount every day until the change is complete.

You should be careful when you start looking for food for your Sphynx. You need to remember that your Sphynx cat may need more fat and calories than the typical housecat and omega-3 fatty acids are essential for a healthy coat.

Here are some things to look for in the best food for Sphynx cats:

Sphynx are muscular cats and the amount of animal protein should be a minimum of 26 % of their diet. Sphynx cats have a high metabolism and therefore requires more than the minimum 9% fat in its diet. Shop for the food that contains 12% to 15% fat or more. Also, Sphynx food should havelimited carbohydrate content as possible.

Raw Diet

I do not feed my cats or kittens raw diet. I know some breeders feed only raw food and they say that it works the best for their cats. I have done a lot of research on this topic and I prefer not to feed my cats raw food. The only “raw” food that I would feed my cats or recommend to my customers is Stella & Chewy’s Chick Chick Chicken Dinner Morsels Freeze-Dried Raw Cat Food.
