Why does my cat smell like poop? 💩

When your cat does not find any food to eat or does not like what you are feeding it, it goes out looking for its favorite food.

In its search, the cat then does not even care if it has to explore a trash-can or a place where it smells like poop because eating is more important, so it goes and looks around everywhere it can find food, be it a bad-smelling place or not.

That is the reason your cat smells like poop.

How do I know?

Well, we have a stray cat that comes into our home daily.

Most of the time, we do not have its favorite food, and what we do feed; it does not like that much.

When that happens, which is often the case, it then starts searching our trash bin for food. And if it even does not find anything to eat in the trash can, it then eventually has to go out looking for food, and the cat does not shy away from going to places where it smells bad, as mentioned earlier.

After coming home, I once rubbed its belly, and there was a bad smell coming out of its belly when I rubbed it.

I instantly knew that it was around somewhere near the trashy places.

How do I stop it from going there?


Feed your cat its most favorite food, or at least food that it can eat and does not hate.

For example, our cat likes to eat chicken meat, especially when it is cooked. We mostly feed the cat the chicken bones when the meat is limited; otherwise, the meat itself and the cat really enjoys it.

Once we do feed it its favorite food, it does not have to go look for the food itself, meaning no poop-like smell.

What’s a cat’s most-favorite food?

Generally, it is chicken!

Or that is what I found with my cat, at least.

For the best answer, you’ll have to look at your cat’s behavior whenever eating the food you are giving it.

But, as I said, generally it is meat or chicken.

Don’t do the same mistake though!

While cats love eating chicken, do not feed too much of it to your cat!

A few months ago, we fed our cat a bit too much of chicken bones that it loves so much! But, that made it sick, and the cat was puking the whole day long, and almost was about to die because of the weakness of all that puking.

I even cried for the cat in my prayer.

Cats are meat eaters, plain and simple. They have to have protein from meat for a strong heart, good vision, and a healthy reproductive system. Cooked beef, chicken, turkey, and small amounts of lean deli meats are a great way to give them that.
