How do you make your cats poop smell better?
I feed my cat Science Diet kitten food, and he occasionally eats the Feline Greenies treats but when he poops his litter box smells up my entire bathroom, which is fairly large. I scoop his litter every day or every other day and I just don't know how to make the smell any better. I also use Tidy Cats cat litter deoderizer. Any suggestions?

I had the same problem with Science Diet and I switched to IAMS. And lay off the treats. If you want him to have greens, grow him some grass for cats... More

you have to clean it daily and scoop every hour or so

my cat used to do the same thing so we bought a new cat box with a lid over it and it keeps the smell in the kitty box, you should give it a try

why are you smelling your cats poop??
Answered By: bobby0554 - 7/3/2007
As far as I know, poop smells, period. Try a covered cat box and that should keep the smell contained.

Poop is poop, it just smells. Just scoop often, right after he goes if possible. If he is able to cover it completely it will help, I always make sure there is several inches of litter in the pan and that the pan is big enough to allow the cat to fully get in there to dig. They really do want to cover it, but if the... More

Try spraying some Febreze on the poop.....

Scoop every day, even twice a day. Mix with your scooper baking soda in there. Or they have special stuff made by Arm&Hammer for cat boxes. Tidy Cats litter deoderizer sucks in my opinion. We will not buy it again. Good luck!

We used to have cats and we used plain old baking soda mixed with the litter. You can buy 10-12 lb bags for very little at Costco-type warehouses.

how about one of those stick up things?

Cat poop will never smell good. No matter what you do. Poop is poop. However, you can alter the content of the poop by changing the cat's food. IAMS is the best as far as I'm concerned because the poops don't smell as bad. I've done experiments with regular cat food and IAMS. Regular cat food eaters stunk up the... More

My experience has been that the higher the quality of food I feed my cats, the smaller their poops are, and the less smelly. Something in the Science Diet food does not agree with your cat's digestion. Eukanuba is a step up from Science Diet (regular Iams is about the same as Hill's), and brands like Felidae, Nature'...

Is your cat covering his poop? I have 4 cats and I was having a problem with one not covering it. If not, you can teach him to. Just put him in the litter box when there is already some in there. Take his paw and scrape the litter on top of it. He'll learn to do it too. Also, many litter boxes come with a filter... More

Put spray on the litter box.
