Diet

One of the most common questions we get is "What is the best diet to feed my Sphynx"? The biggest factor in your felines health besides genetics and environment is diet. Diet is the foundation of your cats health and its key to our Sphynx thriving in their every day life. Cats are predators that evolved to eat a diet of raw meat. Its only since the late 60's early 70's that we have tried to feed cats a diet based on foods unsuitable for a strict carnivore. Cats have absolutely no dietary requirements for carbohydrates. They evolved to get almost all of their fluid from the food they eat and that lack of moisture in dry food is responsible for so many kidney issues in cats. Grains, vegetable and plant matter, highly processed and cooked meat products are not what cats are designed to eat and they have been directly linked to diet related diseases. These types of diets have been the reason so many of our rescues have come to us with severe stomach issues. We strive to feed raw to all of our rescues and a raw diet has been the answer that so many of our rescues needed. We strongly advocate the same for all cats. A raw diet is always best for any feline and a good quality canned food with the least amount of grains, veggies and plant matter is second. Dry food is never ideal for any cat. Here are a few resources for information on feline nutrition.
