My Maine Coon, Scooter, has a huge coat and recently he's had an issue with getting bits of poop stuck to his butt hair. Which is disgusting. And now I have claw marks all over my hands from cleaning it as best I could! He may need his anal glands squeezed and I'm going to bring him in to get that checked but I was thinking about asking them to at least trim the hair around his butt and maybe all over - he'd be cooler and he does get nasty mats (and he's not a fan of grooming so it's an ordeal to get them out). I've never had long-haired cats before - does this sound like a viable solution? I've seen the so-called "lion cuts" and I don't want that - I want him to have some fur, like maybe the same as a medium- or shorthaired cat.
