I have a male cat about 7 months old, who stinks!!! I just got him fixed this week. When will he stop smelling so bad? I gave him a bath a few days ago, and now he stinks even worse. I got home from work today, and now even my apartment stinks. It is not cat urine smell.
Also could it be causing my other male cat to be more aggressive toward my female cat? Had all 3 together for past 5 months, and for the past 2 months the 1yr old male has been chasing my 4yr old female.
Please help me get out of this stinky situation! Thanks
If it's not typical cat urine odor, then what kind of an odor is it?
I had a male neutered years ago and he used to spray in the house. The Quack-vet assured me that the male smell would gradually get better with time as would his "spraying habit," but it never did.
One of my cats in particular has a very overactive anal gland and it stinks so bad that I just can't stand it. Changing the food helped. I changed to IAMS and that got really expensive, so then I changed to another purina variety that was small like the IAMS, but not so expensive and that has fairly cured this anal gland odor that she used to get. It smelled SO BAD -- like you'd imagine an anal smell to be only 100x worse than that.
My cats, by the way USED to eat "Meow Mix," and that stuff is what I changed from that eliminated the odor so if you're using that kind of cat food and the smell is as described above that might fix it.
Good luck. I hope it helps. My problem is cat vomit and that was the reason I changed the food to begin with. Then I realized that my stinky cat wasn't stinky anymore except on rare occasions and for that I just wipe her bumb with a moist towelette and that works fine. It happens so seldom now that I can't remember the last time she smelled bad. But when the cats were eating the Meow Mix my male cat would vomit every time he ate. The smaller dry food pieces seemed to be the cure for that. But now they're all vomiting all the time -- I guess because they're old. I would give anything (except a fight and a ton of $) if I could just rip out this carpet (at least then I could mop).
