The cat or the tail?
Or the hardwood floor?
I wouldn't want a super fluffy tail. It would make poop positioning difficult.
Have fluffy cat with fluffy tail, can confirm. Butt nuggets everywhere.
If it's a bit smooshy add a sprinkle of benefiber to wet food. Have Maine Coon X with much floof and IBD. This saved me lots of grief (and also helps her guts a bit)
Omg-does this work? I have two Maine Coons, 13 and 15 lbs and lots of floof. Had to hold one down the other day and wipe then cut the fur because couldn’t get all the poop off. How much benefiber should I give based on their weight? How often? Thanks!!
Phoebes has IBD so we watch the litter box situation closely to monitor her poops. With out benefiber it's variable smooshy to liquid tar. I refuse to trim her floofy britches too. Shes too pretty.
Use benefiber not metamucil.
I asked blue pearl vets (best around, truly they are a real "hospital" for pets) and they said it's fine. She had her colonoscopy there. It really helps and keeps her off steroids as much once her Colon's inflammation resolved.
You have to mix it into wet food until it dissolves. Start with less than 1/16th of a teaspoon 2x a day. Maybe half that. Add a little more based on how firm the poops get. Back off if you think it's getting too firm. If it's that loose that you need to wipe, benefiber should help her.
It's a bulking fiber so just start slow. 1/16 tsp 2x a day is as much as I've ever given Phoebe. It's not really a weight thing as much as it's what's the poop look like. I basically sprinkle it in like salt now 2x a day. That seems to be her healthy dose.
She's 12 and her healthy weight is 16lbs (she's Maine CoonX, her daddy was a purebreed that neighbor refused to neuter and let wander, mom was feral I cared for)
Phoebe has IBD, but fiber is good and needed in all diets. It's often missing in kitty diets now bc of our focus on grain free. IBD is caused by many issues, but once the colon is inflamed everything passing through hurts it worse & starts going through to quick, which inflames worse. It's a cycle. Steroids help the inflammation, and to keep it at Bay, I have to make sure she gets enough fiber.
When you say wipe? How soft?
I never had a problem with anything like that but my cat did perfect little poops that didn't even smell. Her little starfish was all pink and clean too.
I did feed her both wet and dry food, her dry food was grain free while the wet was proper cat food from better brands. She was lucky enough to have fresh rain water everyday from a special tank though, which isn't always possible I know. All that said, it took me a long time to get her to even eat wetfood, and the cats home made me promise not to give it to her and said she only would eat dry, but there was no reason not too, except for the fact she was pretty clueless on how. Ended up whisking it to a real mush and sticking it in the microwave for 6 seconds (I'd mix up a couple packets and put it in a ceramic jar in the fridge, give her a couple teaspoon heaps every few hours) and she loved it.
My previous cat would only eat whiskers and felix and bad stuff and her poop was...horrific.
I really do think the best thing is quality of food to be honest.
Klingons around Uranus. Yes, I had a Maine coon mix with the same issue.
Not his cat but he'd like to have such a tail.
The owl cat.
It's a pretty good tail. I'd definitely like a tail like that.
http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/news/2017/12/cygnus-and-arcturus-tallest-cat-and-kitty-with-the-longest-tail-have-died-during-502383 - Cygnus the cat with the longest tail - sadly passed away in a fire :( Edit: Arcturus was the bengal, they were both majestic cats.
the owners live in my town I remember they put up a 10 thousand dollar reward to find them (for each) because they weren't yet sure that they were dead... very sad :(
I had seen this very picture and months later the news about the fire, they had posted on reddit too for information. I too hoped they were all right and had managed to escape :(
Delete this 😥
Cygnus. Arcturus was the Savannah. God, how devastating, though.
Why did you have to do this? Couldn't you have let us be happy without that knowledge!?
Cuz reddit and not instagram
The owners have four cats now -- two Bengals, a Savannah (Phoenix, brother to Arcturus) and a new Maine Coon (Altair Cygnus, brother to Cygnus Regulus). They have an Instagram account -- starcats_detroit -- if you want to follow them.
Looks like we’ve got ourselves a furry here folks!
Found the fur chaser.
I expect I’d look backwards a lot too if I had a tail like that.
Happy cake day
Saw the caption and thought of Dr. Seuss' story about Gertrude McFuzz... I really hope the cat's name is Lolla-Lee-Lou!
Glad I'm not the only one
“were”. I wish it were. Subjunctive.
Thanks. I learned something today.
I only learned it through taking Spanish for many years. I had to look up subjunctivo because I didn’t believe we had it in English. Yep, we do, it just wasn’t taught it explicitly in ANY English class I took, ever.
Both are acceptable, there's no need to correct it.
My boy has a tail like this *proud parent* It's the longest cat tail i've ever seen and amazingly fluffy - i call it his plume lol
You wish you had a tail?
Tobi-Kadashi in real life.
What kind of kitty is this?
I always feel like people shouldn't say this. Such a great looking breed for a cat though!
They're real pretty, and probably the floofiest of the tabby cats.
I've had 4 over the years, 2 pures and 2 half breeds. Wonderful and quirky cats.
looks like queen
op has tail fetish
Big tail energy
OP is a furry confirmed
I have the same floof!
Happy cake day!
This is the peacock of cats.
OP is a closet furry, wants a tail
Wait you want a tail ....
Get outta here with that "Zinogre", this is full Kulve Taroth.
Happy 🍰 day!
Perfect for sweeping the floor.
You wish the tail was yours, or the cat?
so that's why that floor is that clean...
OP wants a tail
tfw you witneses a tail so beautiful it converts you into a furry.
Just looking at this picture makes me sneeze and wheeze.
Yooo, they took the tobi kadachi from MHW and made it a real thing
Obviously it’s the cats tail.
Why would you want a tail?
It looks like One tail's paw after Gaara loses control over it.
If you want a fluffy tail, no way to get a real one, but there are websites that sell the right "attachments".
Happy cake day!!
That is impressive. Happy 🍰 Day!!
If this were a certain video game franchise then you'd get a special material for cutting that off... don't though cause cattos only deserve love
Purposely swats you in the face with it
I think the tail also does well to dust the flooring. haha.
You wish you had a cool looking tail as well?
OP what does your tail look like?
That's a weird looking Swiffer Pad.
Live action Pokemon movie looks great
Eh. Not really aww. The tail takes too much focus.
Dire cat. Like a dire wolf, but cat.
That's a tail to make a Khajiit envious.
Whos saying it you or the cat?
If that's not the definition of "floof," I don't know what is.
She must be sooo proud
Our cat could have this tail if only he knows how to keep it away from the gas heater.
Some thing here looks fucky
Ofcourse it's not yours, it's the cat's.
Pretty sure you can get plugs that would give you a tail just like that...
When it dies you can get the tail made into a butt plug and the tail is all yours.
That’s a beautiful squirrel !
No wonder the floor is so shiny
That's a unit of a tail
Rapunzel, rapunzel, let down your floofy tail!
I love this
I bet her tails a drag
I want to hear this cat’s “meow” or ‘voice’, is it loud or muted (I lived with a cat with an ’invisible’ meow)
Happy Cake Day, btw
Happy cake day!
Happy cake day!
Happy cake day

My girl has a tail like that, when she holds it up it looks like a pineapple
Happy cake day
Cool he can buff the floor for you
Cat got better hair than me
I want my tailypo!
You swish it was.
Looks like an ultra wide lens so it's distorted making the tail look longer than it actually is.
Happy cake day
Strange title but still cool
Fuck I tried searching for you everywhere in pokemon go. I'll get you this time for sure with my newly bought pokeball. Its time to burn those grass pokemons to ashes. Hehahaha
Happy cake day, OP!
God damn furries and their tails...
