Help! Cat food smell :(

September 13th, 2005, 10:23 PM
Hello All, I am new to this forum.

I've had something bugging me for some time. I live with three cats (my roomates) and she feeds them both the dry and wet food. The problem is that the wet food leaves a really bad smell throughout the entire apartment. She is the type to leave the food out for them all day.

Please, any suggestions as to how get the tiny apartment to smell better? Regular sprays aren't working. I need something permanent. Any help would be appreciated.

To be honest,I have never heard of a wet food smelling up an apt,or even a house. :confused:

What canned food is she feeding them?And how much?

Could it be that the food has gone bad?Does she leave the can out after it is open?

How much is she putting in their bowl?Do they finish it or is there some left?

Sorry for all the questions...Just need a bit more info... :)

I have 2 cats and am in a house.My place doesn't smell from the food.I also have friends with cats in apts,same thing,no smell.

My cats get both canned and dry.With the canned,they only get about a teaspoon.And they finish it all.If they don't,it gets thrown out.I will not let it sit there.As for the can after it has been open,I put a lid on it and put it in the fridge.

Oh I forgot,Welcome aboard......... :)
