It's amazing what terrible things I can do the cat these days. I just sat her bottom half in a basin of warm water (with a tiny bit of soap), and kept her there for a few minutes while working out many bits of cat litter and cat poo from her copious quantities of fur.

She whimpered and wailed. And afterwards I carried my poor sodden darling to one of her favourite spots and left her there to sulk and recover, but she's back already and sitting on my chest while I type this. And purring.

Possibly I'm just the warmest spot in the house for a damp cat, but still, she's not hiding under the bed and hissing at me.

I also managed a good look at her bum, always too well hidden by fur for casual inspection, and noticed what may be an infected gland or something. I'm leary of telling the vet about my obervation though, in case they can't see anything and think I'm a weirdo for looking so carefully.

For my next task, I'm off to clean the carpets of trails of cat poo. Ergh.

Oh yes, the "say hi to my bum" thing. Fuzzychops is a bit to, well, fuzzy for that to be quite so confronting. But it also means it's hard to see anything without really freaking her out.

The trails on the floor have been caused by her scooting. And curiously, when I noticed this odd little eruption(?) Gently pressing on it did not freak her out if anything, she calmed down.

Does Monday sound too dangerously late? Because short of attending an emergency clinic, that's the earliest I've been able to arrange.

Ok, thanks.

My old cat had that problem once too, but I can't remember what symptoms she had displayed.

She seems otherwise normal, touchwood.

I can definitely sympathize. Neko was pulling herself across the carpet leaving a distinct hash mark. Vet did look at things down there and no comment so I'm assuming no serious problem ... just everything else going wrong. Sigh.
