Why does my cat smell so darn good all on his own?
I know of other friends who sniff their wonderful cats (not even those that are professionally groomed) is there something about their saliva? For example, dogs smell horrible... but sometimes not... I had a dog who smelled naturally like cookies once.
I think it's a combination of things. Some people will disagree with me, but I think cats keep themselves cleaner than dogs and that eliminates some of the odor. Cats are also less likely to play in the water which eliminates that wet fur smell. I always say my cats smell like baby powder and I believe that scent is a combination of the baking soda and scent crystals in the cat litter I buy. But there are times mine stink ... they might not think they do. LOL! If they clean themselves right after eating, they'll have a slight fishy smell. And occasionally they play with stinkbugs (although I can't figure out why) and then they smell like stinkbugs.
Cats smell good because they take a lot of care when grooming themselves. In addition they smell good because we keep their litter boxes very clean.
That's such an interesting question! I loved reading the answers here too. I have two cats and come to think of it, they do always have a freshened smell. I can tell when my cats have been hiding in my stowed away blankets because they smell like the blankets which have a really clean smell.

Why does my cat eat grass?My cat chews on grass when I take him outside (yes he walks on a leash!). I don't know if he swallows it or not. I usually pull him away before he has a chance to swallow it. Is he missing nutrients?

Why would a litter trained cat suddenly begin to use the house as his litter box?This did not just start. He's now been doing this for a little while. One vet I asked seemed to think it was stress. Someone else I spoke to thought it was for attention. I admit he is the most left out of the mix of...
