I adopted my new kitty in July and since then I have sold my home and moved into a new one. I noticed him coughing up a worm within the first week and took him to our vet who tested and treated him for roundworms.
He consistently is pooping in my bedroom so I have closed it off and he now has full run of the extra bedroom where I keep his litter box and food and water. I close him up at night and he uses the litter box for both peeing and pooping. However, he's not grooming himself after pooping. (He also is on a diet since he has gained 7 lbs since July. I feed him 2 3oz cans of fancy feast and 1/8 cup of dry food in small amounts at a time (recommended by my vet) I take him back Saturday to have him rechecked.
What can I do to encourage him to groom his butt? Or, what can I do/use to clean it for him? I keep thinking maybe after he loses some weight he will be able to manipulate himself better for cleaning.
Any recommendations or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I love him and just want us to be able to get through these issues and live peacefully together.View Thread
