How to Choose the Canadian Sphinx Kitten

Little sphinxes are demanding and gentle children. In order for the sphinx kitten to grow up healthy and its development to be complete, the baby’s diet must be varied and balanced: professional feeds are only Super Premium class, special vitamins and additives, canned food for kittens, it is advisable to feed raw frozen meat, chicken, baby food. It is very important that kittens can communicate with a person as often as possible, starting from the very first days of life, because this is a guarantee that babies will grow up affectionate, sociable and person-oriented.

About 10 years have passed between the appearance of Prun and Epidermis, and, it can be said, they can be considered the “fathers” of the breed. Continue reading
