Really smelly poos.

Hi, I've two cats, they both go outside but will only go to the loo on the tray for both wees and poos. I have 2 big trays and I clean them out constantly. Everytime a cat has a poo I clean it out, bag and bin it.
The problem is the smell, it absolutely reeks and nearly every night I'm woken up by the smell and then I have to clean the tray etc.
Could anyone suggest some food that helps with this issue?.They are boys and have wet and dried food.They eat standard supermarket food at the moment.

Mine eat Felix pouches & Royal Canin biscuits & smell is rarely an issue.

I do use covered trays though, with Cat's Best Oko Plus litter, which is brilliant at absorbing smells (as long as the poo is buried!)

It's expensive but lasts for ages & makes a huge difference.

I had the same problem with supermarket cat food. I didn’t realise how crap it was!
If you can afford it try a food with higher meat content, no grain biscuits etc. You’ll be surprised the difference it makes.

Royal canin do a digestive kibble designed to reduce the amount and smell of poo. Works for our furbaby.

Vet nurse here (and mum to 2 cats) - supermarket cat food really isn't the best quality. If you can afford to buy something with a bit better meat content from the likes of Pets at Home. Hills, Royal Canin, and Eukeanuba are really the top tier things but Harringons, James Wellbeloved, and Purina are all pretty good.

I find having a large covered litter tray with a filter can really help with the smell (our Bengal does the smelliest poos no matter what we feed her).
You can get them quite cheap on Amazon.

Thanks for your replies, I've tried more biscuits,Royal Canning and a small portion of Whiskas meat twice per day.Things are a lot less smelly.

Royal canin do one for sensitive stomachs. Improved our litter tray changing experiences enormously

Royal Canin indoor dry cat food. It has odour reduction. A life saver. Think we'd have an outdoor cat otherwise. The difference is amazing and the cat likes the food too.
