Why has my cat been eating cat litter plus smelling like cabbage for the past few weeks? He doesn't seem to be sick.

Haven't seen a vet yet, but read it could be a vitamin deficiency. Don't want to take him to a vet and be misdiagnosed.

If you do not trust your vet, then you need to find another one. How many times do you go to the doctor and get misdiagnosed? Eating litter is NOT normal, and your cat should be licking/bathing himself regularly. If his natural smell doesn't work for you, you can buy spray-on waterless shampoo or bath wipes, but don't use them too often or they will dry out your cat's skin. Banfield clinics have a free consultation coupon up front, and you'd only have to pay for medicine if he actually needed any... better safe than sorry!! ^_^ happy Howli-days
