Can cats fart? The answer to the question is, yes they can. Cats are carnivores that eat foods that are high in protein content. This type of diet produces proteins that are known to contain high amounts of sulfur. Sulfur is a chemical known for its terrible odor, which is why when a cat does fart it is particularly smelly.
The reason that someone may ask can cats fart is that they have probably never heard their cat, or any cat, fart. This is because cats fart silently, they can pass gas noisily on occasion, but it is very rare. The reason for this is the positioning of their intestines. The intestines of a cat are arranged inside of their body in a position that is more vertical than most animals. The alignment of the intestines causes low internal pressure, which means that gas is released slowly and steadily. Most animals release gas in a short loud burst. Another factor that makes cats fart silently is the fact that their anus does not close as tightly as that of a human.
We talked earlier about the fact that cat farts were particularly smelly. Many people would like to know why cat farts are so nasty smelling. The main thing that affects the smell of a cat fart is its’ diet. We have already spoken about the fact that their high protein diet has an effect on the way their farts smell. If you change the type or brand of food you feed your cat, it can have an effect on the smell of their farts. If you feed them something that takes longer to digest than normal, this can also have an effect on the amount and smell of their farts. One last note about cat farts, if your cat has noisy farts, take it to your veterinarian. If a cat has noisy farts on a regular basis, it can mean that they have intestinal problems.
