My over weight cat

My cat is overweight but healthy otherwise...she's been having issues with not being able to clean herself after she goes to bathroom and now has started to screech in pain. Is there anything i can do for her or put on her bottom that will help? HELP PLEASE!

well it could be that the weight problem may be affecting her joints making it painful to move etc. Here is some information regarding that

However helping her to loose weight will help her a lot. I know this is not easy but it i doable over time.

In the meantime all you can do is to wipe her behind with a moist tissue to make sure it is clean. Also make sure you brush her regulaly to prevent matts forming which can also be painful.

best wishes kate
