|Another thing I do with one long haired cat who tends to catch poop in his hair and gets a dirty butt is to trim the hair short around his anus, on the underside of his tail near his body, on the insides of his hind legs, and on the backs of his hind legs. I also trim the hair short on the bottoms of his paws so he can't get litter and poop caught in between his pads.
If you have a cat who cannot clean his butt because he's too fat to reach around to clean it, you may have to take him to a groomer, bathe him yourself, or gently wash his rear with warm water until you get it clean. While a cat who is too fat to clean his own butt needs to lose weight, cats must be made to lose weight gradually so if your cat needs to lose weight, have your vet check him to make sure he's otherwise healthy and then put him on a reducing diet under your vet's guidance.
