If you're squeamish. I'm waiting for my g'friend to arrive because she has to help me. Seriously to g-d. Lola has a giant poop matt under her tail and try as I might, I can't pin her down to wash/cut/slash etc at her bottomside without significant damage to myself. I tried. Last night. My hands are bandaged. I left her in the bathroom because she smells, well, like cat poop. And she knows something is wrong. She limps down the stairs. She's taken to lying flat on her back with her back legs wide apart, something I've never seen her do before. Occasionally she tries to clean herself but, yuck, even for a cat. In the meantime, the house smells real bad and no amount of incense is helping.
