      Snuffie usually smells like a combination of the coconut oil I use on her when I bathe her and Dreft fabric soap from her sweaters that I wash.

          Funny you should ask...

          They don't usually have a smell...but today, Nelson smelled just like mashed potatoes. Made me hungry! :LOL:

            I'm concerned for you guys and your comparison to the way your cat(s) smell and...food...


            :LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL:

            My cats just have a neutral freshly bathed smell. No food included.

              The opposite happened to me- I was eating stuffed mushrooms at a restaurant and it reminded me of Sophie! :LOL:

                      LOL I love this thread already.

                      I love the way Stella smells. She reminds me of my pillow. It reminds me of cuddling up and sleeping . . . just relaxing! I know it's bath time when she starts smelling like Doritos.

                        Bert and Ernie either smell of lavender or some kind of earthy forest floor smell. Maybe it is mushrooms. Its not all that foul.

                            Lemmy does not usually have a smell, but when it is time for his bath he smells like hot dogs!!

                              When Peaches came crawling out of the blankets this morning I noticed a slight odor but couldn't quite put my finger on it. Dreft and coconut oil sounds pretty good :) I wonder if I can use the medela oil I used on my baby. I think I will give the new girl a bath tomorrow and get her smelling like a lady:BigSmile::BigSmile:

                                I don't think Chad has a smell normally, except when I bathe him he smells like cucumber melon and when he needs a bath badly, he kind of smells funny. Kind of like dirt, and while I hate to compare the smell to food, it reminds me of diet Coke... I can't stand that smell (or taste) of Coke (I think it tastes like dirt, too), so I know I gotta get him in the tub!

                                    That slightly earthy smell...he wears a calming collar sometimes, such as vet visits etc and that has a really powdery smell....then he smells like a mushroom baby! :LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL:

                                      :LOL: Yep joining you with the potato theme, I have always thought Mo smells of oven chips! (Fries) when he has been asleep and has got a bit warm! :Hysterical:

                                      By the way, what are fritos?!

                                            My husband says Dorian smells like Dough, I say he smells like potatoes....so the jury is still out in our house!

                                            New kitten smell is very similar!

                                                Piglet usually has a nice warm "baby" smell when she's clean, but when she gets dirty she does smell a little like fritos.

                                                    We voted dirty feet, but he smells like potatoes too. Don't know how cooked mushrooms smell, cause we don't eat them...
