Do cats fart?

Because there is a bloody horrible smell (I have very little sense of smell but I can smell it) and DS2 denies farting. BastardCat came back from the cattery yesterday - is he taking his revenge?

Yes, yes they do. My two certainly do, not very often but when they do... shock

TheresADogOnYourBalls Mon 04-Apr-16 17:41:41

God yes. Mine, (17 years old and in poor health), can clear a room!!

Silent bud deadly. Every time. Mine have a habit of doing it when you pick them up and they don't want to be picked up: "Defence farts".

Milzilla Mon 04-Apr-16 17:49:33

Same here, rare, stealthy, deadly...

Yup, my kitten sits on my knee and farts!

Oh dear. I've been blaming DP.

Mine only does following a mouse or bird late night snack or a change of cat food.

But they are foul.

horrendously, yes

MrsBertMacklin Mon 04-Apr-16 18:08:22

Mine has yet to do so in my presence, which I find deeply suspicious after 18 months.

Which food is being offered?

Vinorosso74 Mon 04-Apr-16 20:42:41

Oh yes they do. Ours doesn't very often but there's a distinct smell and she has a certain look about her.
Our previous cat was a more frequent farter but he was a greedy bugger so I have no idea what delights he was eating.

One of mine has quite audible burps!

I call cat-farts 'guffs'.

One of mine does savage ones.

JennyOnAPlate Mon 04-Apr-16 20:50:05

Mine certainly do! Silent but deadly.

Current elderly cat likes to come and sit right under your nose before she does it, disgusting animal. Her mother didn't like to do it too near, thankfully, her tactic was to do it while moving rapidly away so you got the smell and she didn't. In both cases they were/are noxious enough to strip paint.

Omg defence farts. Thought it was just mine.
Another thing the fuckers did (I lock them out of the room now). If we were eating something that smelled especially nice and no one would give them. Fuckers would walk in the room and let off stink bombs. Knowing the smell would drive us
Out and put us mere humans off our food. Then the scavenger little bastards would pick it out of the bin and smirk at us.

Their not even old. Only 5 months.

Two types of farts in my experience: revenge farts (they are dispatched post cattery or vets visit) or defence farts (dispatched when cat is picked up when it doesn't want to be).

One of my cats farted in my face, it was wet and loud and I don't think I can ever forgive him

OTheHugeManatee Mon 04-Apr-16 21:05:55

They certainly do.

Cat farts are noxious.

Kitten farts are banned under the Geneva Convention.

EdmundSlackbladder Mon 04-Apr-16 21:06:14

Do they? Holy crap yes! I have a stealth farter. She stops, drops and leaves. DH often gets the blame.

My cat farted his way through kittenhood. He only did it when we were playing and he got really overexcited, like when I was chasing him round the room. DP thought I was making it up for ages as he wasn't as good as playing with him! I don't think he farts anymore though.

Archcat only really farted badly when he ate grain-filled food. Once we went grain free the smell largely stopped. Largely. He still manages to let rip in the foulest manner on occasion.

FishOn Tue 05-Apr-16 16:23:50

Mine don't. I find it deeply suspicious.

Mine just likes to burp right in my face hmm
