Trisht,

Sometimes malodorous kitten flatulence can be normal however, it can also be indicative of some problems - commonly parasites like coccidia, giardia, tritrichomonas, etc... Some may also be contagious to humans, some are not. Deworming and fecal testing along with a basic check up with the veterinarian is a good place to start. Till then, hold your breath!

Take care
