Hi
I would show them this thread when you go in.

Also, you're saying she's getting under furniture? Can you contain her in one room until this gets squared away, and block off access so she remains out where you can get to her?

Also, others will correct me if I'm wrong but you
might be able to use chamomile tea on her bum. Store bought is safe (garden grown is not), brew some, cool it and apply.

It's anti bacterial, anti fungal, will ease discomfort and is safe if she licks it.

Yes, thank you. Her junction wasn’t removed, which gives better odds. It’s turned from liquid to a consistency but the problem is, she’s not aware of it when she passes it in her sleep. The doctor said she and all others should never have an issue of leaking out spontaneously. They may or may not use the box and/or drop liquid or solid because they again, feel the natural urge. And some remain liquid indefinitely. But my cat doesn’t have an urge it just flows out throughout the day and night. When I hear it she never wakes up. She’s never even tried to control it or go to the box. The doctor said she’s never heard of a cat losing control of the anal sphincter because that area and nerves are not touched. She feels it because she’s driving herself mad constantly trying to clean it up and she’s completely raw. I can’t keep the collars or surgery suits on. She’s hacked all the cones and soils the suit immediately after I clean her and put a new one on. She’s miserable.

I do keep her contained most of the time, but my house is a cat freeway and when I’m back and forth trying to clean her or everything she touches she’ll get away from me at times. She’s figured out 2 places I can’t get to and can’t close off. I’ll ask the vet about the tea. Thank you
