A. What to Consider When Buying Healthy Cat Food

It is important to understand your cat’s nutritional needs before you start shopping. Start by talking to your vet. They can recommend the best types of food for your cat based on age, breed, and health. All cats need a balance of healthy fats and animal protein in their diet, with all the essential nutrients.

The volume and quality of the ingredients largely determine the price of cat food, but a higher price does not necessarily guarantee higher quality. When you go to the store, check out the ingredient lists for the cat food you are considering.  As a general rule of thumb in dry foods you will look for: 

  • Digestible carbohydrates and fiber
  • Healthy, animal-based fats (about 15%–20%)
  • High-quality animal proteins (at least 30%)
  • Essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and fatty acids

Wet foods contain a high percentage of water, but they should also contain a significant percentage of high-quality animal fat and protein. The percentage of protein in animal food, as well as the overall quality of the food, are factors that increase the price tag. 

 Buying in bulk is tempting, but be careful, dry food will lose its nutritional integrity as soon as you open the pouch. Unopened wet cat food can be kept for up to two years. After breaking the seal, it will only keep in the refrigerator for about five days. It’s up to you to strike the right balance between quality and budget, but luckily there are plenty of great options. These are our top picks for some of the healthiest cat foods for pet owners on a budget.

Things to Know About Sphynx Cat

Things to Know About Sphynx Cat

Podcast | Kiara – Things to Know About Sphynx Cat

Overview

Sphynx cats are energetic, friendly, and playful pets. They are good around children and other animals, and despite their strange looks, they are cuddly. However, many people do not know what they are getting into. Ironically, if you do decide to have a Sphynx, it will need more grooming than most cats due to its lack of fur. They sleep on your lap, but they also need lots of company and regular cat grooming.

Sphynx Cat Care:

1. Grooming

If you have a Sphynx, you should brush it at least once a week. They say, “But it has no hair; why does it need maintenance?” Sphynx groom themselves just like normal cats, but because they don’t have enough fur to absorb the oil secreted by their skin or saliva, it leaves their skin sticky, sometimes crusty, oily residue, sweat, and spit. Look at them the same way you would a baby: they are hairless, close to the ground, not made to clean themselves, and have special needs.

2. Bathing

Shampoo your cat at least once a week to ensure bacteria or other nasty substances are flushed out while you bathe. However, sometimes a Sphynx retains its instincts and doesn’t enjoy getting wet. Make sure your breeder has worked on getting your kitten bathed regularly and continue bathing regularly. To help build the habit of bathing, give your kitten special rewards during and after cleaning.

3. Ear Cleaning

The ears of sphynxes have no hair in the ear canals, which makes it easier for dirt and debris to collect in the ears. This wax blocks the ear canal if not cleaned. Be prepared to use a cotton swab and some ear cleaner to remove dirt from your cat’s ears a few times a week.

4. Nail Trimming

Cut only the sharp tips and not the most delicate pink part of the claws.

5. Temperament

Sphynx cats are some of the most affectionate and friendliest cats. If you want a cat that sleeps on your lap while watching TV, snuggles up with you at night, and greets you at the door after work, this breed is perfect for you. They are friendly, calm, and good with children, dogs, and other cats. But these cats need company. This breed does not like being left alone and desperately needs attention. When you get one, you should be able to return all of the affection and love she shows you. Unless you are a very affectionate pet owner, better get yourself a more independent and detached cat.

6. Toilet Habits

You should be able to love your hairless companion even if:

  • They don’t cover their poop in the cat litter.
  • Their poop smell like the worst you’ve ever smelled.
  • When you have visitors at your door, they stepped on their soft poop, and curled up in front of the guests, and left droppings everywhere.
  • Or let you eye watering farts when you hug them in front of the guests and explain how beautiful they are as a breed.

7. The Need for Heat

In countries with cold winters, your energy bills must go up as a Sphynx needs to be warm all the time. If you don’t leave the heaters on, you’ll need to buy a heated cat igloo or make a warm bed with pillows that get plenty of sun. Be careful when dressing your new friend! Some cats are okay with this and appreciate the warmth, but many get confused and unhappy when you try to dress them up.

8. Sphynx Cats Are Prone to Health Issues

Like other cats, Sphynx cats are prone to genetic health problems. Sphynx cats also have dental problems. Common ailments vary widely in Sphynx cats because of their lack of fur, and someone unfamiliar with the breed may not recognise something as common as ringworm in a Sphynx if they don’t already know what it looks like. If you get a Sphynx, you should have the cat checked regularly for heart problems.

9. Sphynx Cats Are Not Hypoallergenic

If you want to keep a Sphynx cat because you think it is the only cat that will not bother you with allergies, please reconsider your point of view-many people have these cats because they think they are hypoallergenic, But this is not the case. “No hair will not make them hypoallergenic” It is even possible that humans are more allergic to bald cats than to long-haired cats.
