Hello, fellow sphynx owners I have a big problem with my hairless lady. She is 2 years old (we adopted her from a certified breeder around 3 months ago) and she just doesn't care for intimate hygiene at all. I've had cats all my life, she is my first sphynx and though I was prepared that she will need more maintenance(ear cleaning, baths etc). I honestly was not prepared for THE POOP. I mean she doesn't cover the poop which is understandable as some dominant cats don't do it(my other cat included) but my issue is with her dirty bum. She just steps out of the litter box with her bum stained with poop and proceeds to go around the house living some "stamps" wherever she sits. This is the first time I encountered such phenomenon, all the other cats I know clean their buts and don't drag poop around the house. I wipe her ass every time she goes but sometimes it is impossible to keep track when I not home. Is this normal? I really need some advice and help I cannot keep doing laundry all the time.
