Wish I did.  My fat white cat doesn't wash herself any farther back than her 
shoulders.  I used to think she was just too fat to reach, but I've decided 
that she is just a natural slob.  Of the many cats I've had in my life, this is 
the first really dirty one.  She gets real knots of matted hair on her back, 
then goes out and rolls in the gravel drive and it is all gray and 
awful-looking.  Not pleasant to touch.  She loves to be petted, and when you pet her, she 
washes a paw or her shoulder vigorously the whole time, but never any farther 
back (including where she needs it most).  When it gets really bad, I just 
take fingernail scissors and cut out the mats.  She will hold still for it - 
likes the attention.  Of course she looks stupid for a while with great chunks cut 
out of her fur all across her back, but it grows back, and it isn't really 
any worse-looking than the dirty mats.
Thank goodness the other three are as fastidious as cats should be.
