It's humid in the house but AC is always on. This doesn't happen with the other cats, the hound or me. Lewis is a short hair who loves being wiped down with damp paper towels and then getting a nice brush. Beyond that you'll lose a finger if you do any more and he's getting too fat to groom himself. On his back near his butt he always gets what looks like someone has spiked his hair with gel. It's not a cyst or a wart and it doesn't hurt to press down on it but if you pick at it or try to snip the hair he goes ballistic. That's a question for a vet unless someone else has had a mystery like this. Today he managed to get poo on him and now... LEWIS NEEDS A BATH. He stinks and this needs to happen. How am I going to do this quickly? He is very forgiving and I have something like welding gloves. Shampoo? Soap?
