Cat with strong smelling urine

My 5 year old male cat's urine has acquired a very strong smell. He was neutered when he was young and has never sprayed. What could be the cause of this smell? Can this have something to do with coming into contact with another cat who was unneutered and sprayed? Could this other cat have somehow activated my cat's hormones? Please help.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Strong smelling urine tends to come from cats who do not drink enough water.

It smells strong, when? In the litterbox? How can you tell, like does the whole room smell of it.

If he rarely drinks water or drinks it excessively, prefers to be alone, worse from sunshine, oily fur or fur that falls out easily, look into giving him Natrum Mur.

Please post his temperament and better from/worse from.

His health seems very good. His fur is shiny and thick and doesn't fall out, his appetite seems good though he does vomit occasionally. He goes to the bathroom regularly, and this very strong smell of urine has appeared very recently. It's coming from his litter box, i know because i was in the bathroom with him when he peed (and the litter was just changed) and as soon as he went i couldn't breath in the bathroom.

I actually don't know how much water he drinks because he rarely drinks the water i give him. He's had some sort of obsessive compulsion to kick the bowl with his paws before begining to drink (hence spilling out most of the water onto the floor) since he was a kitten. I see him drinking from the toilet and sink sometimes.

Regarding his temperament, he is... well.. with me he is very affectionate and follows me every where. With others he's aggressive, only instead of hiding from strangers, he'll try to get close to them. He's very curious. But if they try to touch him or sometimes if only he notices they are looking at him, he'll begin to hiss. I had a friend he disliked greatly... when she'd go to the restroom he'd follow her hissing and wait by the door for her to get out, and when she did, he'd continue following her around the house hissing.. sometimes all the way to the main entrance.

Also, he's declawed. (my mother did this because she's CRAZY when i wasn't home to protect him)

I also have Natrum Mur at home now... dose 200c... i'm taking it to help with depression..

Begin with Nux Vomica 30C, one daily dose. It is also great for hairballs.

You may wish to have kitty checked for a urinary infection, etc. ~ especially if kitty has urinated once or twice where he knows he is not to!

He always uses his litter box.

If you feed your cat dry food, I would recommend switching to canned food or homemade food. I have many cats, and each one became so much healthier after I did this. I use Petguard canned and homemade. I know that even traditional vets are starting to question whether or not cats do well on dry food. Cats aren't supposed to drink a lot of water. They are built to process water in their food. There are great websites about homeopathy and cats and holistic care.

I feed my cat Wellness brand dry kibble, which is considered to be one of the best pet foods available. They don't use by-products and from what i've read, are made in sanitary conditions.

I am weary about feeding him only wet canned food. I want him to chew... otherwise i feel his teeth will atrophy.
