Cat licking Butt
My male cat of 7 years old always licks his sisters butt. Can he get sick w/ e-coli doing this? They both vomit a lot since they were kittens. We've tried since they were kittens Purina One Sensittve System dry cat food, Purina One Hairball Formula, Purina One Healthy weight and Hairball Formula, Iams Hairball Formula. They don't eat soft cat food never have. They do vomit hairballs and they eat too fast and vomit there food too.We also have well water they drink daily. Help!!!!
My old cat used to vomit everyday and this was due to her eating too quickly. the solution is to put smaller amounts of food down for them so that they can't physically eat too much all at once. It will mean feeding them more meals but smaller amounts.
As for the bottom licking, no he won't get sick. Cats wash their own bottoms etc and so they are much more immune to these bacteria. As for why he does it, well it may be a scent thing. Is your female cat spayed? Sometimes cats will just do this as mutual grooming.
