I adopted an eight month old kitten about a week ago. She is doing super! The only problem... she smells!!! I guess it is a urine odor? At first I figured it was because she was kept in a cage at the Animal Shelter. I thought it was probably from laying on urine soaked paper/blankets. Shouldn't the odor begin to lessen if this was the cause? Her whole body smells, not just her hind end. She does bathe her self, She uses her cat box just fine, and is a healthy kitten. Any ideas on why she stinks so bad??? I would really rather not try and give her a bath. I have only had her for a week and I don't want to freak her out. I did purchase a package of "cat wipes". I tried to wipe her down with one but she was not too impressed. I was able to get her back end but it didn't help the smell. If anyone has experienced this problem or knows why she would smell so bad, I would love to hear your advice. Thanks!!!
