My kitty is a cute little fart girl.

Hello,

I have this little kitty and every now and then, especially when she snuggles up with me (or that's when I notice) she farts. I can't hear her but oh boy, puuuuu!!!!!

Well the first thing I was told, it's her nutrition. So I changed everything. I got her mostly maxkitten and purina for the kitten can food and royal canin for the dry food (kitten formula) So it all matches her. She farts less now, but still does sometimes when I feed her fish. Is it possible that she reacts to fish and tuna?

My Lilo does the same thing. When she gets relaxed. Dont worry.... no matter what you change she will still fart. It may not be as stinky... but nothing will keep her from farting when she is relaxed.
We just have farty girls.

Oliver doesn't do it often (or at least I don't notice it) but when he does, he's a little monster about it... I'll be laying down or at the computer and he'll come over rubbing all against me like he's cuddling, then turn around lift the tail, fart in my face and run away... I bet he's laughing in that little kitty head of his too when he does it!

Tommy and Mellie never fart. Very occasionally Rocket will. But he's the cat with the "sensitive" stomach. So I still suspect food. I'd suggest still trying different food. Look for something with the fewest and lowest proportions of grain products in the ingredients.

Luckily we haven't had a cat that farts for a few years!

Neither Buffy nor Willow farts (if they do, I don't hear or smell them), but Buffy gets some bad smells from the opposite end. All she has to yawn and the walls will start peeling.

Just one quick note: have you tried California Natural, by any chance? It reduces gas in dogs, though I'm not sure about cats. I believe it should, though (reduce gas, that is)

oh, man!!! Am I glad to see this post!! I have had cats almost all my life, and until I got Samson, I honestly didn't know that cats farted!!! I thought that there might be something about their digestive system that prevented it. (Okay, so I'm not so smart ) When I asked the vet if cats can fart, he looked me straight in the eye and said, "No, cats are the only animal in the world that doesn't fart." Then he laughed at me!!! He suggested a change of diet for Samson, and it does work....some. Five years later, he is still my loaded whoopie-cushion, 'cause once in a while, you pick him up and I also call it his defense mechanism. I always knew about dogs farting, and most dogs will at least seem embarrassed and slink out of the room.....not Samson!! He'll sit there and kinda sniff the air, like he's enjoying the aroma!

Lucy was really bad when we got her as a kitten. Eventually, she seemed to grow out of it. What really cracks me up is that she always let loose when she was snuggling or playing with my husband.

Alicia farted when we first brought her home. She was 3 months old. She is now 4 months and the farting has stopped. We did find that she had loose stools, and a bacterial infection in her GI tract. The vet put her on metronidazole, unfortunately, she wouldn't stand for a pill!!!!! Fortunately, the farting and liquid poopies have ended on their own. I thought the farting kitty was because my hubby had picked her. Like boss like kitty. LOL

One of my greatest childhood memories is from when I was about 9 or 10. My prissy cousin was visiting and she went to pick Glory up and Glory let out the loudest fart I have ever heard a cat make. My cousin put her down and ran!

Mooch is a tooter too. She likes to lay on my chest all the time. The other night she was there and let out one and I about passed out! My eyes were watering, I was gaging....stinky!

My kitten Cleo has just started farting (or we just started noticing it). When she does it, it's dreadful. The poor thing could kill a flower with her stench. I've bagged a poop sample to take to the vet tomorrow. My other kitten has Coccidia and he's on medicine for that, but he's quarantined. Even he hasn't farted though. I'm not sure what's up. I thought this was a rare occurance, but then I found this thread. Glad to know I'm not alone!
