Cat food can have a strong odor due to the presence of animal ingredients and the manufacturing process.
Cat food can have a strong, unpleasant odor because it contains animal ingredients like fish or meat that give off strong smells. The way the food is cooked and preserved during manufacturing can also contribute to the odor. Food additives and supplements, such as fish oil or vitamins, can also add their own specific odors. While this aroma may not be pleasant to us, cats are usually attracted to the strong smells associated with their food.
