Recently I came across a butt streak on my ottoman. Since I have hard wood floors throughout the house, the stool was the only surface Twinkles could find that would itch her bottom. I couldn’t blame her and I really couldn’t be mad at her – as humans, we often take our hands for granted. We don’t stop to think about an itch…we just take care of it. Our beloved felines must get creative when a hard to reach itch stalks them.
Not one to rush to the vet at every hiccup, I looked for a simple and non-toxic home remedy to help Twinkles out. I cleaned up her pants with a little almond oil and followed it with a paper towel doused in warm water. She didn’t care much for the oil and gave me he surprised squeaky meow. The wet paper towel was a different story – she really liked the warmth and danced her happy tail dance.
