    Our cat has the worst smelling poop I have ever experienced in my life. I'm assuming it's finding the right balance of food? I know that's usually the case with other animals. Maybe the sphynx just has toxic waste? :Wink2:

    We did recently switch her food, hoping that would help. It didn't.

    She was eating Purina One Healthy Kitten Formula (suggested by her breeder) We then switched to Merrick Purrfect Bistro Chicken, as suggested by another breeder.

    She also eats Max Cat wet food once a day.

    Thoughts?

    Unfortunately, stinky poos are a sphynxie specialty. My girl has IBS, so we're definitely well acquainted with the toxic stench! The best thing I've found for smelly poops is a raw diet. It's ridiculously easy and affordable, and there's virtually no smell at all to the poos! If you're able, I'd suggest trying it out and see if it works for you.

    My girls could clear a building in no time :LOL: I have them on blue buffalo wellness kitten grain free and same for wet. It helped a bit but I plan on trying raw. It's on order just waiting for it to arrive. I've noticed the more wet they get the smell is worse. So I keep it to a minimum. That and a cat litter that works for you. We've done better with the arm and hammer unscented scoopable.
