Smell problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I bit the bullet and bought a Litter Robot. Love it, however the smell is atrocious. (and it's in my husband's office...no where else to put it). I have two kittens, each about 5 months old and I am feeding purina kitten chow. I used to give them the chow mixed with canned but cut out the canned, thinking that was the problem. I have been told to get Science Diet dry. I clean the poop out everyday and put fresh litter in every week. I am using some litter (Member's mark) we got from Sam's but have Arm and Hammer ready to go. Have tried deodorants to no avail. Please help! Susie

To help with the smell, and your kittens health you need to feed a better dry kitten food. As far as grocery store brands, I would use Purina One or Iams. If you can, get Nutro or another premium brand. I have kittens right now that I am transitioning off of kitten chow and onto nutro kitten. I have learned on this board that Science Diet is not that great of a food. I guess wet food isn't too good for smell, but it is good for the kittens. I would also avoid fish flavors as they smell bad on the other end too. I don't know what a litter robot is, to cover up smell using a clumping litter Arm & Hammer and Fresh step are pretty good. You can also dump more baking soda on top. Don't forget to scoop frequently, and have one box per cat plus one.

We were on Purina one and the smell was OK - we recently switched to Nutro - and now that you mention it - the smell is better!
