Lux is a long-haired cat and since I've had him since he was 1.5 years, and he's soon to be 4. I haven't trimmed his bloomers even though they were badly in need of it, but yesterday because he was leaving poo bits everywhere (including my roommate's room) and smelling like poo and that was going on this morning as well, I gave him a bath and brushed his bloomers and trimmed them. He was so distresses! I don't think I've ever seen him so panicked, even though I was gentle and gave him treats. Now he is walking around the house with his tail down. Is this because he isn't used to having the fur trimmed off there? I thought he'd be feeling better. He is affectionate still though, and responds to me, so I know he isn't doing terribly. Anyway, I was wondering whether there was something I could do to make the experience less traumatizing for him when trimming down there. I wanted to take him to the groomer but it's too expensive so I need to do it myself. I would appreciate input. Thanks!
