Not a particularly bad stench, just plenty of it! I have to feed my
cats a more expensive cat food because one of them has severe skin
allergies to anything with common fillers. Both refuse to eat canned
food, and I've tried just about every brand including those
recommended by the vet. I can get them to eat a little of it by
mixing it with water and they'll lick the liquid out, but then the
food will sit in their dish until it smells and they follow me around
crying, wondering where their dinner is!
