I gave Nutmeg's butt a haircut yesterday - it was a huge success!

    For some reason Nutmeg always has poop stuck to the down on her butt. I've wiped/picked it off a few times, including one time I had to give her back end a warm bath to soften it so I could get it off, then a burst with the hairdryer to fluff her up again.

    Finally I figured out it was just going to keep happening and I was worried it might paste over her vent if I left it, so yesterday I took to her with some small scissors and got rid of the downy bits that were catching the poop.

    Fast forward to today and for the first time since I got her she has a perfectly clean butt!
