Anyone Else's kitty poo MEGA stinky??

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I know thats an odd topic. I know the 'stink' has alot to do with the diet and food type. We have, over the four years Foley has been with us, tried a few different types.

I think maybe he's just a stinky fella. Its not Always so bad. Barely noticable, and yes, the mega super made for multiple cat litter does NOT work. Sometimes though, its toxic. Gag worthy even! The whole house stinks! lol

Anyone else own a real 'stinker'?? What can I do to .. er .. help his lil problem? Any recommendations or food or litter?

The smell will totally and completely go away if you switch to a raw meat diet for your cat. I hardley ever have to change litterboxes around here anymore. I forget that they have litterboxes because there's no smell! Im not kidding...it's amazing!!!!!!

try stepping up to Nutro or natural balance neither has ground corn soy or wheat..

Whiskas isn't a great food, so try putting him on a premium brand.
This may help.

I agree on trying the premium brands. What about Royal Canin? Not only are they our sponsor here, but I did notice the other night one of the key features is odor reduction. http://www.feline-nutrition.com/indoor.htm I'm sure it is not the only food your kitty would show an improvement on. I use Natural Balance and have good results with it.

While it might cost a little more then feeding supermarket brands it is not as expensive as feeding "premium" brands.

Hmm. Great advice. I think when he runs out, I'll try a small bag of one of the mentioned and see how it .. er .. 'turns out' ..

Thanks guys!!!

Actually, the premium food's money's worth is about the same as the supermarket brands. You pay a little more for the premium food, but it lasts longer because the animal doesn't need to eat as much.

No I meant feeding raw meat probably costs less then buying premium brand food.

If your vet has verified no health issues, then it must be diet. Try a premium brand, but note that you might have to try more than one. Our cats used to eat Nutro MaxCat dry, until Jewel (3rd picture) came along. On MaxCat her trips to the litterbox could set off a smoke alarm. We've since switched to Nutro Natural Choice and Authority and she's had no problems since.

We had the same problem when we got our cat and were feeding her Whiskas. Really smelly !!! We have tried everything and in the end settled with Iams canned food, because that is the one she likes the most.(texture issues here). I would try switching foods, in our case I cannot say that premium foods was working ( I don't think Iams is premium could be wrong,it costs a bit more than than other brands) so in my opinion , especially if money is an issue, try different brands and see what happens. Your kitty will make the decision anyways as to what she likes or dislikes
