Hello. I have a 10 month old Persian kitten. For the past few months, she has been getting poop stuck on her butt and hind legs when coming out of the litterbox. I have given her multiple baths, but am now hearing that it may not be good to give cats baths often. How often can I give her a bath, and does anyone have any suggestions otherwise? Thank you.

Bathing cats too often, especially kittens can dry out their skin and also make them irritated. I would be more concerned why their poop is so soft and sticky. I would either take to the vet or get some forti flora to help digestion. Then trim the long hair around their legs and butt. I feel you have two long haired boys and they get “dingle berries” from time to time. Grab it with a tissue and a nice wipe with a damp cloth will do. 😊

pair of sharp scissors / pair of latex gloves some wet paper towels is all you need really. aside from maybe a helper to either hold the kitten or the cleaning up. or maybe a monthly trip to the groomers to get his rear buzzed short
