had him four weeks. He's four months old soon
His poos aren't usually too runny but are very soft and stink beyond the norm (i know as used to work in cattery! he has face of angel and arse of demon)
It's not worms
He has a mixture of wet and dry
should i stick to just one?
He passes wind a lot too! (silent but deadly)

Raw food (for example Natural Instinct) poos will come out small and firm and if you're not feeding any dry completely ad our free.

Is his food grain free? My kitten was the same, as soon as a got him on a grain free diet, it sorted itself out.

Most dried foods contain grains, but Applaws doesn't.

What wet food do you feed him?

My kitten can't tolerate meat in gravy - gives her the runs. She's fine on meat in jelly + kitten biscuits

He has GoCat kitten dried food
and Felix Kitten pouches (meat in jelly)

Ah, well that is your problem. Both loaded with cereals and other fillers. rubbish

Go-Cat has very nutritional value, and causes cystitis/crystals in the bladder in male cats.

Felix and the like is the equivalent of McDonalds.

Zooplus sells loads of good cat foods. I feed mine on Animonda Carny (wet) and Applaws (dry). Both cereal free. Cats being obligate carnivores have a hard time digesting grains. Hence your kitten's stinky bum!

If you pop "best food to feed my cat" or the like in the search box, you will find lots of threads on good, nutritional cat foods.

Off the top of my head, Butchers Classic can be bought from Pets At Home or supermarkets. Same price bracket as felix etc., but cereal-free. Many on here recommend it.

*very little nutritional value, I should've written!
