Ms Puff's bad butt

Post by jeanebellini on Tue Mar 08, 2011 7:49 pm

i was upstairs visiting Found Kitty (who i found they call Liam Jr ...after the big puffy orange kitty who passed a few years back) and was told they had to take Ms Puff (aka Ms Pees on the Floor Cat aka Noel)to the vet because they thought she had crystal.
it turned out her butt fur had gotten so badly matted her butt had become infected and she couldn't go to the bathroom.she got her butt fur trimmed and will have to get it trimmed every 6 months or so, got the infection cleaned up and some medicine to put on it. she seems pretty peppy though!

Ug, nasty. Poor kitty! It must have been awful for her to have such a sore butt all this time! Glad it got taken care of, and I'll bet she is, too. Hope poor Miss Puff feels better soon!

don't think anybody knew what was going on. andrea says she combs her every day but she didn't know it.I only see Ms Puff through the fence in the door and reach over to pet her as best i can. (she'll be getting another kitty to'talk to' cuz they've got a new kitty condo..supposed to be for NObe but FoundKitty is going to be in it til he finds a place of his own...at least it will be a bigger cage. they're going to put the new cage a few feet from the bedroom door where Ms Puff is. i'm wondering how she's gonna feel about that!

Boo's butt used to get all matted and I would have to have it
shaved. Since they are separated they should be fine.

Oh, I hope there's no bad kitty drama! With any luck, they'll make friends. cat

Believe me, I wasn't casting aspersions about the care of Miss Puff. All us kitty mamas know anything can happen, and who thinks to comb a kitty's butt? (Hoo, even if they'd let you! affraid ) Frankly, this is a wake up call for me and I'm grateful for it. I plan to take a gander at Weezer's butt from time to time from now on. She is a short-hair but still very furry, and arthritis in older cats (like she has) means they aren't always comfortable getting way back there to clean the nitty gritty as well as they should. I just hope she doesn't turn me in to the ASPCA for peeking at her nethers. tongue

Poor Ms Puff! That had to hurt...............glad to hear it's been taken care of, she must feel so much better already. Don't know how she's doing to like Found Kitty being that close, but being in a cage will prevent any injuries in case it gets nasty............I hope they become friends.

My long haired kitties have avoided butt trouble, but I have to keep my schnauzer mix, Abby, in a "sanitary clip" in the rear. That's given me lots of practice, though, and I can almost do a respectable schnauzer cut now. When it's time for the sanitary clip, I clip the whole dog.

My parents haven't had butt hair trouble with any of the cats, past and present. Majority of the cats have been short hair. Mikey had medium length hair and he didn't have trouble with his butt hair. Pugsley has managed to get poo remnants on his tail on occasion, but we haven't noticed any trouble with his butt hair.

The guilt that I felt when calling this one in to the vet was almost unbearable No

No reason to feel guilty. Kitties don't like people looking at their butts, do they? I don't think any vets expect people to inspect kitty butts. Razz I felt similar guilt when Shadow's anal glands got all messed up and she started scooting all over. The vet said that most cats would rather scoot than have people look at their booties. (And she used the word "bootie.")

Well...I had 3 similar cases with 2 different cats. With Envigado, I just plain was not accustomed to looking at the pinkie-winkie region and he has long black fir!
With Jay Jay, it happened twice for the same reasons. At the time I could remember getting past looking...but then I would be wondering if I let them gain too much weight. Then I talked myself outta that guilt too. This hasn't happened to any of my cats in a good 6 years...mostly 'cuz I've gotten over looking at the back end of a kitty Embarassed

there's no shame at lookin' a critter's pooter! just so long as you don't do much more than look;) but you've got to check it out a little bit like you check their teeth or ears etc. (i'm not going start poking around the Rescue Kitties' mouths but i'll push their lips back and check at least their front teeth!)

Heh, heh...all the blushing about that issue ended at least six years ago. I basically made myself be brave back then when a neighbor across the hall had an obviously portly cat that couldn't take care of business...and dang it all, I would NOT allow myself to be THAT person at all!!

nobe was like that until a few years ago...she had gotten as big as a basketball! her tooter was so filthy we tried to take baby wipes to it..but back then she still had the attack mode set. i started limiting her food...she gets half a cup of dry and about a tablespoon of wet each day. she's not the prefect cat size, but she's lost enough that she had clean herself now;) she used to also have very crunchy dry fur but now she's soft like a kittybunny:)

Wow! That was a chunka kitty, Jeane. Glad to hear she's in better shape now. I never really considered all the side effects of kitty roundness.

Sounds like the change in diet affected more than her waistline, it made her fur nicer too.
