Old cat sits down in litter tray - any solutions?
My brother has an 18 year old cat... she is fairly healthy (has had recent vet visits), but she has arthritus in her back legs.
When she uses her litter tray, she sits right down into the litter, so when she gets out, she has litter and faeces stuck to her.
She can't keep herself clean anymore, and it's so difficult for us to clean her. We've tried cutting the hair away from her anal area, but it's not easy, and doesn't really solve the problem.
Any ideas to help this situation?
We thought about shaving her around her tail/anal area... this would help to some extent, but any other ideas?
