How Often Do Cats Fart? How many times your cat farts a day can be pretty variable, but one or two toots a day is considered normal, Sara Ochoa, DVM, consulting vet for Dog Lab says. Compared to a human (21 times per day!), cat gas via a healthy feline isn’t frequent.
Gas, or flatulence, in cats is not very common. As a result, if your cat starts passing gas or does so more frequently, with or without odor, there may be an underlying gastrointestinal (GI) issue that needs to be discussed with your veterinarian.
Cats have special dietary needs, especially the indoor ones. If you’re giving human food and/or low-quality cat food to your pet, all those fillers and carbohydrates will cause excess gas and stinky bacteria to build up.
Though not all animals fart, cats certainly can and do. That said, many cat parents may not even realize that cats can pass gas, as they do so less frequently and less prominently than other species, like dogs and humans. As with humans, cat flatulence occurs when too much gas builds up in the abdomen.
Some cats do experience more gas when they start eating wet food, while others have more gas on dry food. It’s usually not the moisture content of the food that’s the problem, but the ingredients your cat doesn’t really need in their diet, like extra grain and various other additives.
While being scared may not always have a relation with your cat’s stinky farts, as it turns out, it is possible for your cat to accidentally fart when it is excited or happy! A lot of cat parents have experienced this “happy farting” by their furry little babies, especially when they were small kittens.
