Horrible excrement smell! How do I 'cure' this?
Well, sorry if the title may seem shocking, but that's exactly the problem.
About two weks ago, I found this young (8 months old) cat, which had been thrown out by someone. I already had a cat for 4 years, and I love these animals, so I adopted him. I cleaned him up and groomed him. After some hissing and chasing around, the two animals became friends. They are exclusively apartment cats, never go out.
They are currently using the same literbox, and eating the same type of dry food. But whenever the male goes for "number 2", you feel like fainting whenever you enter the bathroom, where the litterbox is. His excrement is always soft and horribly smelly. By comparison, our older cat has always had dry excrement, almost like deer droppings, and similar in aspect.
Is the male sick? What can I do to get rid of this problem?
I can't go to a vet, I'm unemployed and in major financial trouble as it is...
