What to Expect

When You Bring Your Kitty Home

When You Bring Your Kitty Home

Your cat/kitten will be litter box trained but they need to know where it is in your home so show them where the litter box is several times a day for the first few days.

It is recommended that you confine your cat/kitten in a small room for the first few days. A back bedroom, bathroom etc. They need a quiet place to feel safe.

If you have other household pets, it is advised to keep them separate. Let them adjust from a distance. This is a stressful time for a kitten.

It is understood that the bambino/sphynx breed, hairlessness will vary. This can be due to hormones, climate, and genetics. It is impossible to guarantee complete hairlessness for the life of the cat. It is possible for the cat/kitten to develop hair especially after desexing or as it ages. This is usually specific to the tail, feet, and ears.

If you bought a coated cat/kitten they will come flea free and have recently applied flea product. All cats/kittens will come completely bathed, ears cleaned, and nails trimmed.

The Goody Bag & Kitten Care

The Goody Bag

All cat/kittens will come with a care package. This will include everything you need for the first few days. This will include a litter pan , food, toys, blanket, etc.

We prefer yesterday's news or exsquisicat paper litter.

They should remain on a good quality kitten food until they are a year old. We use Royal Canin dry and wet food.

Cats/kittens don't always drink enough water. Feeding wet food assures that they are well hydrated.

It is recommended to keep them on the food they are accustom to for a few days and gradually switch to your preference. It is not uncommon for them to have loose stool as a result of moving to a new environment.

Hairless cats/kittens can NOT live outdoors. All cats/kittens should be strictly indoor pets.

Kitten Care

Hairless cats/kittens can produce oils. This is not absorbed in their fur. Weekly baths or as needed and touch ups with baby wipes are recommended. Clean ears are essential for this breed. You can purchase a good ear wash from you vet.

Hairless cats/kittens can get dirt between their toes and pockets of their pads. This can be cleaned with a baby wipes as well. Nails should be trimmed about every two weeks.

Any cat can get a form of dermatitis from eating out of plastic bowls. Always use stainless steel or ceramic bowls with hairless cats.

Hairless cats/kittens often have discolored teeth. They can also have discolored tongues. This is common while nursing.
