I just have a few questions to ask to get your thoughts and see if I am thinking the right things. Firstly, our new cat Cala has been having soft stool since we got her, I am pretty sure it is because there was no transition. Im not sure what she was eating before we got her but I know it wasnt Merrick or anything good. She is a long haired cat and has been getting a lot of poo on her rear. Not just around her hole but like down her legs and stuff. We have had to clean her a few times, but what would you suggest I do until she gets used to the food? Should I just trim her fur like I was going to or should I do something else? Would just trimming it help? Secondly, she had a major infestation of fleas when we got her. We threw her in a flea bath and I have not seen a flea since. However there still seems to be some dirt and scabs around her neck. Do you think there may still be fleas or is it just the rest of the scabs and stuff going away like I was thinking? And finally, with both of my cats being long haired, what are the chances of hairballs happening and what can I do to prevent them, is there any need to? Thank you guys for helping me.
