We Feed Our Sphynx Kittens With Royal Canin Dry Food.

What are Sphynx cats’ unique dietary needs?
Like all cats, the Sphynx breed requires a species-appropriate food that nourishes them according to their natural biological needs. But when it comes to special needs, the Sphynx is fortunate to be a healthy little hairless sprite – free from the hereditary health conditions associated with other purebred cats.
That said, there are a couple of things to bear in mind when choosing food for your Sphynx.

Both boys and girls have lovely temperament.  If you already have a female cat, your female would be more accepting of male.  If you have a neutered male you could have either.  Large numbers of neutered males seem to live well together.

Allergy-predisposed people have very sensitive immune system. Such side effects as sneezing, nasal blockage, watery eyes or even nettle rash appear as a result of this.
Hairless cats suit only those people who are allergic to pet hair. But keep in mind that allergy can be caused both by cat epithelium (exfoliated skin cells) and cat saliva. It should be also considered that a cat constantly washes itself with saliva regardless of it being long-haired or hairless. But it is only a qualified allergist that can define an allergic agent through special tests. Therefore we recommend getting pre-tested for allergic agent before buying a pet.
After all buying a pet you take responsibility to care of a new family member that also needs your tenderness and love!

We used to vaccinate our kittens at 8 weeks old and then booster again between 10 and 11 weeks old with a distemper combo vaccine.  However, we have found that our clients have taken their kittens to their own veterinarian to be vaccinated repeatedly and unnecessarily even after we’ve suggested against this.  Too many vaccines in a young kitten stresses their developing and fragile immune systems!  Therefore, we are no longer vaccinating with our typical routine. We are offering a choice of nosodes. we have found that homeopathic nosodes offers the safest and most effective protection against ALL feline viral diseases.  We have seen the results and are firmly convinced this is the absolute best method we can take for our kittens to keep their immune systems strong and resistant to viruses.  No other mainstream protocol can possibly compare!

Yes we do!  It covers congenital defects for up to one year.  Also, we guarantee our cats and kittens to be free from fleas, parasites, fungus (e.g. ringworm), Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Feline Leukemia when you take them home.

Castration surgery is not only harmless but also useful for those pets that are not to become breeders. Earlier castration brings beneficial effects for cat’s health and even prolongs its life. The best age for the surgery of a young pet is 7-10 months, which means before the first signs of puberty.
Keep in mind that when castration is done too early it can cause serious health problems: cat’s urethra may remain undeveloped, narrower than it should be in adulthood. As a result, it leads to a urethra obstruction risk increase in the case of urinary system diseases.
The castration of a cat is performed under general anesthesia. Two minor incisions are made on the scrotum, the spermatic cord gets tied up and then testicles are removed. Incision points are usually powdered with tricyllinum, in order to prevent post-operational complications. The whole operation lasts not longer than five minutes. The risk of castration is reduced to complications related to the post-anesthetic recovery of middle-aged cats. Before the operation veterinarian always examines pet’s state of health.
Kittens World recommends giving special priority to post-operational nutrition. There are special low-carb and low-starch feeds for neutered cats. As a rule, such feeds are enriched with proteins an L-Carnitine that prevents a pet from gaining extra weight.
Before the surgery, you should get veterinary advice on such matters as how to get a pet properly prepared to the surgery and how the postoperative period should be held. Such recommendations are provided by a professional veterinarian, who takes into account all the individual characteristics of your pet.
Careful attention towards a favorite pet is a pledge of its health and your calmness!

Providing your dog has a nice nature, there is no reason why not. They will take a little while to read each others body language, then they usually end up best friends.
Sphynx kittens from No Hair Cattery have gone to live with dogs as large as Great Dane’s and St. Bernard’s and have all bonded well. They are also trained and gets along with other pets such as monkeys, birds.
