10. USE CAT WIPES
Cats don't usually have smelly fur because they are such fastidious self-groomers. However, skin infections with yeast or bacteria can lead to an unpleasant odor; often accompanied by hair loss, itching or visibly red and inflamed skin, infections should be treated by a veterinarian. It's important to remember smelly fur could also be an internal medical issue with outward signs. Once again, it's a good idea to seek a medical opinion.
However, in a household where there are cats and dogs that like to not only play together but sleep together, too, your cat’s fur could pick up odors from the dog, if he’s not being groomed regularly. There are special cat wipes formulated with the correct Ph factor for feline skin, that are also hypoallergenic and non-toxic and can be used on a regular basis to wipe down fur. They are also excellent for removing general dust and detritus from the fur, too.
