Why does my cat's poop smell so bad, and how can I get him to the vet?
I have a 13 year old Maine Coon mix cat, and his poop has the most god-awful smell ever. Seriously, it stinks up the entire house and makes people gag. He's had this going on for years, and we've tried everything from changing the litter to changing his diet, and nothing seems to work. Certain foods seem to make his poop smell less, but still pretty bad. I'm wondering why this is happening and why nothing is working, and if I should be bringing him to the vet about this (he hasn't been since he was at least 7 or 8); and how I can make his poop smell less.
Also, I am planning on taking him to the vet anyways at the end of the summer, but when he goes to the vet, he gets so scared in the ride home that he pees and poops in the carrier and it makes the entire car smell. How can I make him less nervous/scared and get him to the vet and back home without him doing this? Thanks.
