  • When Should my kitten see the veterinarian?
    * Your kitten will need to see the vet within the first 72 hours of leaving our cattery (if they do not see a vet within the first 72 hours you will be considered in breach of contract). 72 hour vet visit your kitten will need any necessary vaccinations, 1 year rabies vaccination, & FIV/FELV test. (check your contract for approved and unapproved vaccinations for sphynx.) * Your kitten will have their up to date FVRCP core vaccines. You are required to keep kitten up to date on all vaccinations that are approved for sphynx listed in your contract. * We do NOT permit a rabies vaccine before 16 weeks old! * Your kitten will need to be seen yearly, vaccinated, and dewormed. * Your kitten will need to be spayed/neutered between 6-12 months old. * Do not over vaccinate your cat! We suggest a titer test be done annually to see if vaccinations are necessary. * Never give two vaccines on the same day unless it is a combo vaccine. It can be too much for a kitten to handle & many cats can have an adverse reaction. * Do NOT vaccinate within 3 weeks of the last vaccination your kitten/cat received. * Do NOT vaccinate with FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus), FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis, & FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus), these vaccinations are not necessary. These vaccines have very dangerous side effects, can be fatal if your kitten has been exposed to the coronavirus. Your kitten will test POSITIVE for FIV if vaccinated with FIV! The FIV test cannot tell the difference between a vaccinated cat/kitten & a kitten that is infected. These vaccines are too high risk. You will be in breach of your contract if you vaccinate for FeLV, FIP or FIV. ​ * Upper respiratory infections, mycoplasma, calicivirus must be treated with 30-45 days of doxycycline or Azithromycin and an on the nose calicivirus vaccine if they have tested positive! *FHV1 positive will need to be treated with Famiclovir. Our breeding cats are negative for all viruses/bacteria/protozoa/fungus/parasites/etc, this is informational if your kitten/cat comes in contact with another animal and tests positive. Veterinarians will try to treat with Clavamox for 10 days and it is not effective in sphynx for these positive test results.
  • Can my kitten go outside?
    * It's recommended that Sphynx remain indoors because they can become easily sunburned when outside or be exposed to diseases and parasites from mosquitoes etc. * Sphynx get cold easily and are highly sensitive. * If your sphynx has a favorite window they like to sit/lay in, we highly recommend a tinted window film to be put over the window to protect them from being overheated and to reduce the risk of sunburn.
  • What should I feed my kitten?
    Dry food: Nulo Duck & Cod (NO CHICKEN/ASH!) Wet Food: Nulo Duck or Salmon mackerel (NO CHICKEN/ASH) Most common food: Raw 80/10/10 mix Treats: Origen six fish freeze dried cat treats Water: Purified only! * Sphynx require a high quality cat food and ingest more food because they have no fur and have a higher metabolism to keep their body temperature up. This causes them to burn more calories than a cat with fur and use more energy. They may require a larger serving to help them stay healthy and active. This diet will ensure that they have a longer lifespan. Cheaper store bought food that is popular is full of fillers, possible harmful chemicals and other things that aren't good for Sphynx. A good, quality food like Nulo will keep them healthy, vibrant, and keep their organs functioning at their best. Please note that sphynx may not be allergic to chicken as kittens but may show signs of being allergic to chicken near 1 year + old. If allergic they will get hives around their face, neck, stomach, and back. * You can purchase directly from their website, Nulo.com, Petsmart.com, Chewy.com, & Amazon.com. * Found at petsmart, pet supplies plus, petpeople, & chow hound.
  • Bathing, Nail trims, Eye & Ear Care?
    * Wiping your kitten with wipes in between baths will help keep your Sphynx clean. Make sure the bath water is warm, not hot & water is ran before bringing the cat near with a washcloth in the bottom of the sink. Hold them securely with one hand while bathing & rinsing with the other. * We recommend using exfoliating gloves to wash with, it makes it easier. Make sure the towels are warm from the dryer. We use "Bone Dry" microfiber bath towels. After the bath, cuddle them & give them love. * Do not over bathe your cat. It can result in an overproduction in oils, which makes the cat "brown up" about a day after a bath. Most Sphynx don't require a bath for several months. * Clean their ears from the inner ear with ear cleanser with a Q-tip. Do not go too deep you could hurt your cat. The bones in their ears are fragile as well! For deep or small areas use a blackhead remover tool. * Sphynx may not have eyelashes so dirt gets in their eyes a lot easier use eye wash & a round cotton pad to clean their eyes every day. * Trim your kittens nails weekly. With each paw press to extend each claw , confidently avoid the blood vessel, & trim quickly. Afterwards wipe each nail with a baby wipe between your thumb & forefinger & rub the nail to remove the brown nail oil buildup. If it will not come off protect your nail with the baby wipe and scrape at it. * Brown stains on teeth of hairless kittens when young is very common. It is because of the oils from the mother's skin when they're nursing. When they lose their baby teeth their adult teeth will come in white. Sometimes an adult tooth will come in & the baby tooth will remain (do not worry it will fall out when ready. If it has been awhile & has not came out, see your veterinarian.
  • Important Need To Know?
    CHECK YOUR WASHER, DRYER, DISHWASHER, GROCERY/TRASH BAGS, BOXES, SNUGGLE SACKS, PILLOW CASES, BLANKETS, LAUNDRY HAMPERS, ETC FOR YOUR KITTEN!! THEY WILL HIDE IN THESE ITEMS/AREAS AND CAUSE DEATH!! * Many kitten's like warm spots & the smell of food or familiar smells these locations are the most common for Sphynx DEATHS!! * Watch doors/Drawers etc. sphynx tails/paws/legs get in the way a lot and could end up hurt or worse if smashed in a door/drawer etc. * Be aware of what your kitten puts in their mouth or what they are playing with, fraying fibers, strings, twist ties, hair ties, fuzzies, beads, dryer sheets, baby wipes, etc. These can turn into big issues that may require surgery or cause death. * Keep nails trimmed to avoid getting caught on things and not being able to free themselves. * We do not recommend collars for sphynx unless you are taking them to the vet etc. If you need to use a collar, use the easy break away collars. * Do not let your sphynx roam outdoors, they run fast, can get sunburnt, be exposed to viruses/bacteria/diseases that can lower their immune system and make them sick! Do not put them at risk. *When visiting a veterinarian office, bring disinfecting wipes and a blanket with you! Make sure you visibly see the veterinarian/vet techs/etc washing and sanitizing their hands before touching your pet. Do not allow your pet to roam freely in the room! Clean the table/scale/etc with your disinfecting wipes or ask your veterinarian to clean with their rescue disinfectant BEFORE you expose them to the bacteria/diseases/viruses/etc in the room and on the table. Place your blanket on top of the table with your pet on top of the blanket to reduce contact with the veterinarian office. This is the most common place that sphynx pick up viruses/diseases/illnesses/protozoa/bacteria/fungus/etc. Reduce the risk and follow the listed above steps!
