I have two mixed-breed cats, both with rather long hair. I have had to give each of them a bath recently (and will have to bathe the male again as soon as he comes out of hiding) becuase they come into the house with feces stuck in the fur around their tails and back legs. They then go around the house trying to wipe it off on the floors, rugs, beds, etc. It doesn't happen often but even once is too much! The vet said they might have worms and this is making their feces very sticky; he gave me some worm medication but the male has only gotten worse since. He shaved their bottoms and legs. He also suggested not feeding canned food and giving only high-quality dry food instead. Has anyone had this problem and do you have any advice? I know it's not the cats' fault but I'm ready to kill them! Thank you!
