How To Keep Your Sphynx Cat Warm!
If you have a hairless pet, you might think dressing them up is cute and adorable - and you would be right!
However, warm clothing is much more than just a fashion accessory for fur-less pets, it is vital to their health.
Without fur, they cannot regulate their body temperature effectively and lose heat continually throughout the day. This is what makes hairless pets typically require more calories and especially more high-quality proteins and fats in their diet because they're burning extra calories throughout the day trying to keep their body warm. If you are unsure where to start with providing your pet with the optimal diet for their health, check out my low-cost course which will teach you everything you need to know to have homemade pet food in minutes.
Keeping your sphynx in clothing, like a sweater or pajamas when the temperature in your home is around 75 degrees or lower is a great idea because it allows their body to use energy for other vital organ processes, like digestion, immune system health, general cellular health, and body cleansing, rather than spending it on keeping warm.
However, there are a few important considerations to keep in mind when buying your Sphynx clothing. It’s really important to buy custom clothing for your Sphynx cat and not just regular items from the pet store.
Custom clothes are designed with the unique needs of Sphynx cats in mind and so they:
- Keep them warm (by using the best material)
- Fit correctly (by accommodating the lack of fur)
- Are safe to wear
Check out my top recommendations for the best places to buy clothes for your fur-less baby.
Not only will clothes allow your baby to strut their stuff with style, but they will help to keep them healthier overall - remember warm kitties are happy kitties!
Keep giving your pets the best of natural life!
