Re: chat messages


It sounds like she needs a bath. Some cats enjoy being bathed. If she's got
some really sticky spots, you might first rub some vegetable oil into them
to soften the gunk a little.
I had a slob of a cat for a while. Every now and then the other 2 would pin
him down & give him a good stem to stern wash.
