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.


I just wanted to share. Thanks for listening.

Off to the vet is my advice. I once had a cat who only tolerated to be transported and handled when sick if she was inside a pillow case. She calmed down immediately. We were quite a pair, me and the moving pillow case (zipped up) on my lap in the vet waiting room.

Thanks, I had to laugh with the image of the moving pillow case. We actually used the hose thing in the sink and she tolerated it pretty well, after the screaming was over.

Ha, one of my cats had this problem over and over! It was the worst! I would have to wait for him to fall asleep and stealth snip the poop hair!
