Please help me remove glue from a cat with luxurious long fur. Complication: she reacts violently to human touch.
An infestation of drain flies led to the deployment of one of these
glue-stick traps, which worked wonderfully well until the cat got stuck to it.
Mina is a lovely long-haired black cat, in the foreground here
and looking appropriately hunterly here
. I stole her out of an alley when she was three weeks old, and had to bottle-feed her. She's a nasty little feral hellspawn who loathes human contact. I am the only person who can handle her without risk of injury -- and even then, I get bitten a fair amount.
The trap got stuck to her belly and the right side of her head. It came off without much of a problem, but now the fur on her belly and along the side of her head (including the ear and whiskers on the right side) is very sticky, with bits of dust and paper and things stuck to her.
It took rubbing alcohol to get the glue off my skin. How do I get it off the cat? Is there a magic cat-unstickying soap? Should I tie her down and shave her belly? Please hope me... and my evil man-eating vicious hateful killer sticky
