The base of my cats tail smells really bad!! Does anyone know what causes it? Is this stud tail? How do you get it to go away! It is sick!!

He may have a problem with his anal glands - ask the vet to check him out.

Probably his anal glands are blocked or something... it happens in male
cats and fat cats - the vet expresses (drains) the glands and
things should go back to normal. However, could also be
an abscess from a wound... Definitely need it checked out tho! Vet
visit would be best.

Everything they said. Anal glands. Need to be expressed. I hear it's pretty gross. and that you would want the vert to it expecially if you are grosses out easily. I have never personally seen it, but from the talk about it. I wouldnt want to.

Take him to the vet, that could most definatly be the problem.

To warn you, most cats I have seen will scream bloody murder when getting their anals expressed, so expect to hear that! I recommend they take kitty in back so you don't have to witness it, it can be hard on some owners who aren't used to it to see...
