7 misconceptions about sphynx cats (part 1)

7 misconceptions about sphynx cats Sphynx cats are perhaps the most unusual representatives of the pet cat kingdom. They seem to be some kind of alien creatures. There are many misconceptions about them that need to be resolved. Sphinxes – Egyptian cats In mythology, the sphinx is a monster with the body of a lion and the face and chest of a woman. The most famous statue of the Great Sphinx. According to the definition of Titus Flavius, a Roman scientist and writer, the Egyptian sphinx is a symbol of strength and mind: the lion’s body denotes strength, the human face – mind. Both the power and the mind are needed by the sphinx to guard the pyramids and temples full of treasures. Contrary to the associative opinion that cats – sphinxes – come from Egypt, the Aztecs first mentioned them. Continue reading

CANADIAN SPHINX: CONTENT AND CARE

Sphinxes are quite simple to maintain and care. The opinion of people that the sphinx needs special, “greenhouse” conditions of detention is incorrect. There are several features that must be considered when keeping the sphinx. In food, sphinxes are omnivorous and have an excellent appetite, a complete lack of moods and finicky. This is due to increased metabolism due to fever and lack of hair. Sphinxes eat like dogs in a Pedigree commercial, grabbing pieces of food and swallowing it, almost without chewing. But, despite omnivorousness, it is necessary to adhere to a balanced diet. There is no need to feed the sphinx only with natural feeds or only canned feeds, a reasonable combination of both is better, and, of course, the highest quality of dry, canned and natural feeds. In my nursery I follow a certain diet: Meat (raw beef), boiled chicken, raw liver or boiled beef (about 60% of the total diet). Dry feed (companies such as Hills, Jams) 20% of the total diet.

Hypoallergenic Cat Breeds

If you want to have a four-legged meowing pet in the house, the future owner sometimes raises the question: “What if you want to get a cat, but is allergic in the house?” In this case, it is advised to have a hypoallergenic cat. Many people have heard that there are non-allergenic cats. That is, these are animals whose allergy cannot occur on the coat. Let’s figure it out. The hair and secretions of any cat contain Fel D1 protein, which is responsible for allergies in humans. Even the so-called bald cats have a protein on the skin, as in the saliva of an animal. Another thing is that some representatives of cats in the fur have Fel D1 protein very little, it is these tetrapods that are called hypoallergenic cats. It is important to know that cats that are completely non-allergic do not exist. Choosing a breed for yourself, you should carefully familiarize yourself with the characteristics of the animal, its parameters. We are interested in maintaining health, so in the description of the cat we are looking for the word “hypoallergenic”. Continue reading
