Why do pets lick their bottoms?

Well, they don't have toilet paper. They have to clean

themselves somehow. If they don't they will have dingleberries and

that is an ugly not to mention SMELLY thing for your pets to have.

I have a cat and he "scoots" as we call it he sits and drags

himself across the floor haha it's actually pretty funny! My

parents hate it! Well, my dad thinks it's funny my mom yells at the

cat. If they don't clean themselves then they will smell and become

verry dirty! Normally just to clean themselves or remove ordors.

They will also do this a lot when they are irritated or are in

pain. If this persists, contact your vet.
