My new kitten, Kensho, has a tendency to fart. Anyone know what causes this and, most importantly, how to prevent it? They cause a quite disgusting smell. At first when it happened I would look around to see if he'd taken a crap inappropriately. This morning I was sitting on the sofa-bed reading and suddenly this acrid odor enveloped me. I looked under my cushion and there was Kensho, sleeping away in the space below and behind the cushions, one of his favorite places of late.
I've never had this recurring situation with a cat. The only thing I can think is his diet has changed a lot. When he came to me around August 24 his diet changed from whatever it had been to Science Kitten Chow and Friskies canned Turkey and Liver as well as Salmon. Then when I integrated him with Jasmine he started eating Purina Cat Chow and the Friskies. A few days ago the Purina Cat Chow ran out and I've had him back on Science Diet Kitty Chow, which Jasmine has been eating too. Just yesterday I started serving both of them raw chicken breast, minced.
