I have two cats, one long haired, one short haired. The long haired one, Frank, dosen't do a very good job of cleaning herself in the hind quarters. Are there any ways to help her out? Powders, wipes, sprays, etc?

Thank you

I haven't had long-furred kitty's myself but recently someone mentioned they keep (very carefully) the hair trimmed just around the hind quarters to help their cat stay clean. I would stay away from anything scented powders/sprays, or products with possible irritants, and probably stick with warm water and a soft wash cloth. I'm curious if she's always had problems cleaning herself, or if it's a new thing with her? :cat:
