Products I use and recommend

FOOD / FEEDING

I am feeding my babies raw mince (pork & veal form the woolies or Aldi) mixed with ‘Raw Meow Mix Kitten Formula’.  Then the Adult formula.

Raw Meow is available in a few stores (check their web site), or online from Perth.  It is quite expensive at $82 for a 400g pack, however this 400g makes 7kg of prepared meals. I am in Melbourne it takes over a week to arrive so plan accordingly.

IIf you want to continue the raw feeding, (which I recommend), Raw Meow is a good way to do it.  You can make your own food, there are facebook pages with recipes on how to prepare your own, or purchase frozen ready made from a pet store.  There are quite a few to choose from.

NOTE:  If cats are on raw feed they don’t drink much water.  So don’t be worried, it is quite normal.  However, please always have fresh water available to them.

 

                                                                                                  If you want to offer dried kibble this is one I like.

 

SHAMPOO

Any baby shampoo that is gentle, organic with no soap. (from baby isle at the chemist or supermarket).  They are always bringing new ones out.

I like Cetaphil Baby, Little Bodies eczema wash & shampoo .   

I use this product from USA. It needs to be ordered online but it’s great and made for nudie cats.  NudieNaturals.com  shampoo and conditioner.

MILBEMAX Worms Tablets. Given every 3 months treats roundworm, hookworm and tapeworm, but give it every month will also treat heartworm.

KITTY LITTER

KITTER WOOD PALLETS natural wood pallets or OZ PET wood pallets.

You can choose your own but always keep it natural as sometimes cats ingest it while grooming.  Try and stay away from crystals.

FLEES

I don’t flee my cats. If they get flees it will be very obvious as they have no fur.  So don’t bother unless they need it.

EARS

The ears get really grubby.  I don’t exaggerate…. They don’t have hair to keep gunk out of them. Get yourself some ear wipes and some baby cotton buds and be prepared to clean them well every week.

EYES

Eyes: must be cleaned weekly or even daily as needed (I clean them daily as babies) . Use saline squirted in the eye. If discharge occurs take Kitten to the veterinary.  Since a Donskoy does not have any eyelashes they get particles (like from their litter, carpet /rugs & woolen jumpers) and dust in their eyes, this can irritate and cause infections.

Clothes: not all cats like wearing clothes.  You can get some really nice stuff on ETSY, but if you just want basic good clothes I recommend this lady, she has a facebook page @stitchedbycherylbetts.

 

DO NOT let any cat outside.  But especially a DONSKOY, firstly it is susceptible to the weather, secondly it can be taken, thirdly it can be injured or worse. 

Nothing good comes from letting cats outside!

A Donskoy is a very new breed.  It has very few health concerns.  Please shop for a veterinary who is willing to do some research into your new family member.  Please remind your vet that a Donskoy is not a Sphynx!  They are different.
