Meet Casper ..Our 2 yr old spayed female ..she's an indoor pet that has never been outside unsupervised.

A few evenings ago, she was on my sons shoulders while he was sitting on the sofa. Casper was eyeing a small moth, that she goes all out to catch. After she pounced after the moth my son noticed a bad smell, and it was from his tee shirt (shoulders) where casper was , Seems as though it came from her Butt/vagina area because we smelled it on her, after we investigated.
Today he picked her up again and had the same smell on him again afterwards..What could it be and why??
Could she be omitting some sort of ordor for some reason? Would it have any thing to do with her being spayed and not getting outside?I have no idea ..HELP?..We love her so much...

I don't think it has anything to do with her being spayed or the fact that she does not go outside.

usually when there is a bad smell coming from this area it is either caused by a stomach upset i.e like gas or diarrhoea or a urinary infection or even an infection in her vagina.

To be honest with you the only way to be sure is to have her looked at by a vet. Often it can be difficult for us to recognise illness in a cat until there is some external sign like this as cats are very good at covering up any discomfort.

It is always better to be safe than sorry i find and when it comes to our loved pets any sign of change should be checked out as soon as possible.

She is a beautiful looking cat by the way, so white.

best wishes Kate
