Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
The other day I went in the laundry room for something and Milo had just got out of the litter box. As soon as he got out he started scooting his butt on the ground. I thought it was VERY strange, as I had only ever heard of dogs doing that if they had worms or something.
I thought maybe he was flushing the worms from his system from a dewormer I gave him last week. (We've had him for two weeks now). I picked him up and looked at his butt and he had a piece of poo stuck to his fur. I shook him gently over the litter box until it fell off. I put him down and he still scooted a bit more, then got up and walked out.
I hadn't noticed him doing that before, nor have I seen him do it since (thought I admit I don't often catch them in the "act".)
Besides the poo being stuck to his bottom, could there be other reasons he would scoot on the floor??
Oh, he is 14 weeks old, if that matters. I get asked that a lot, so I thought I'd throw it in.
