If he/she has smelly waste most the time, maybe a change in diet would be beneficial, to both your nose, and his/her comfort.  If the smell is only recent, has he had something different to eat in the last few days? Maybe he/she has eaten something out in the garden that hasnt quite agreed with his tummy.  Sounds diet related in one way or another.  What do you usually feed him/her?

Most poo stinks, especially that of a carnivore like a cat.  A vegetarian animal has not got the same smells to their poos.

It probably has the squirts and trod it all round your house, try going on youtube and learn how to teach him how to use your toilet.    (^_^)

Any poop smells bad. It's not just your cat. Poop is the waste products, and that waste smells bad because it's a bunch of rotted food.

Have u tried taking a dump on an open container, and leaving it there for n hour or 2, c how good that smells

All cats poop stinks. I suggest you use a clumoing litter. I use "Fresh Step". It has carbon in it which absorbs the odor. Only on a rare occasion does my cats poop smell.
