Skid marks

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My cat insists on dragging her butt across the carpet after she exits the litter box leaving skid marks all over the apartment. Has anyone had this problem? She is long-haired and feces sometimes gets tangled in her tail and hair around her butt. This can be fixed by bathing her but the skid marks are becoming annoying and a regular chore to clean. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks.

You might want to have your vet check your kitty for impacted scent sacs.
You can do search in the Health forum for more info on that issue.

Thats also a sign of worms sometimes......

You can also try trimming the fur around her behind so that she doesn't get anything stuck in it. We have a couple of longhairs that we have to do this with and it works fine for us.

Also, she may have firmer stools and needs a bit of softener. You can give her a little bit of canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling) to help soften her stools a bit.
