Maybe you should get an alarm that does not test methane or carbon dioxide.

If this is true, maybe your cat has some bad bacteria in it's gut, or maybe it is sneaking too much pork and beans. Some pet foods contain vegetable stuff that can give cats bad gas.

I hate when cats get the smelly poop, we have had lots of cats and occasionally one gets some bad microbes in it's gut. I have leftover augmentum that I grind up and sprinkle on their foods if that happens, it takes about a half of a human pill to do the job. Lots cheaper than going to the vet and getting a thirty dollar prescription which has many small pills that add up to equal one human size pill. I learned that from a vet quite a while ago.

Type of litterbox material is very important too.

I have two young boys that are under a year old. i use very tiny grain for the litterbox, when they pee it will turn in to a boll of sand. About after 2-3 months after i got them i got a different material, much less tiny and large grains that had lots of air in between.. The hole house stank like i have not seen before, their pee sank true it and just stayed at bottom to slowly dry up.
Switching back to the tiny grain was the best option, smell is gone again and they really like it more too, they can dig in this, the large grains where to solid.
Hope it helps.

Thats right on!

I have a Savannah/ African Serval cross.

He's 6 months old now and 15 lbs.
All muscles and legs.
When he walks, its so reminiscent of a panther.
You can see all the muscles moving under the skin.

Savannah/Serval crosses sound like they have similar behavior as yours.
He's so dog-like.
Likes to go for walks on a leash, play in the water in the bathtub.
Follows you around everywhere.

But when it comes to being pet.. its hit or miss.
He loves playing in his tunnels and chasing things. But he only enjoys being pet on his own terms lol

Here he is at 3 or 4 months

I just had to jump in here to say...


I laughed so hard when I saw it was actually real that I woke my wife up!

We've had some stinky kitties before, but never one so stinky that it set off the fire alarm!! LOLOLOL!!!


Sorry, I am absolutely zero help here, but I just had to throw this out there.

I'll find my way out.

Cat poop and wee smells, cats smell lovely because they clean themselves.

Dogs stink all the time unless they are washed.

All too true but remember when you are stroking your moggy they wash themselves with there own saliva.

Admittedly we human's have far more bacteria in our own mouth's than even a cat does.

Depends on the breed. Many dogs do bathe themselves, just like a cat. Other dogs don't have any odor at all, like a Siberian Husky for example.

wow so many replies thanks
sorry i didnt see them i was offline i dont get online too much
thank you so much for all your kind advise
ive had a letter through the door complaint from our neighbours that the smell is causing a disturbance
i dont understand
its just a kitten, we clean after her mop the floor, daily scoop her litter tray and use cat san - the premium litter
we also every couple of days completly empty and change the litter and bleach out the tray so we do keep on top of it!

It's likely the dust from her covering up the litter. Maybe change to a dustless litter.

As for the smell.... cats smell.

we use cat san its like a chalk, very little dust
absorbs the amonia pretty well
