Do You Wipe Your Cat’s Butt?

June 20, 2011

Sure, our fastidious furry feline friends are experts at grooming themselves and often get right to work “down there” after a litter box visit.

My Pugsley boy has been known to do “the scoot” from time to time when he’s suffering from a bout of the runs (poor baby). Maybe yours has too.

But they don’t always do a thorough job on themselves, do they?

I’ve definitely gone after them with a wet paper towel before. But did you know there are actual cat Tushie Wipes? Thanks to Amy and Sebastian over at Sea Bass Cat for cluing me in to this. Amy and Sebastian use Whisker City wipes from Petsmart.

Frankly, I can’t believe I never thought of this before. I mean, as the mom to a (human) newborn and a (human) toddler, I wipe a lot of poopie butts around here.

I’m totally getting some of these wipes.

My guys are super sensitive so I think I might check into Earthbath All Natural Hypo-Allergenic and Fragrance-Free Grooming Wipes. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Meanwhile, do any of you wipe your cat’s butt? I’d love to hear about your experiences and preferred products!
