    Hello lovelies!

    First of all I want to say thank god for you lot and a big thank you to all of you! you have all been amazing in helping me and Tilda and calming me down from absolute hysteria when I found out she was having babies.

    I have a not so pleasant question I'm afraid...Tilda is too big to clean her btm and its got some left overs, shall we say, from her visits to the litter tray. Should I clean it with cool boiled water and cotton wool or wait another 2wks until shes had her babies? Shes always trying to get to it and clean herself and she looks so uncomfortable doing it.

    Karen xx

    Definitely give her a clean, it will make her feel comfy. You can use fragrancy free sensitive baby wipes, removes any residue slighly easier than plain water, but warm water on cotton wool (stays together better than loo paper when wet) or an old flannel you can pop in the hot wash, will do just as well.
