Does the tail smell good? You might have your very own mobile air freshener... :cowboy:

If fluffy is an indoor cat, just take a pair of trimmers and shave the hair off.

Will see if I can trim it out, no I didn't try re-lighting her tail. The candle was in a candle warmer.
Poor cat is 90% blind and is not the sharpest tool in the shed.

If you freeze the wax it should just break off the hair, try an ice cube ...............do not put the cat in the freezer.. :lol2:

Good luck, poor cat..

Actually HD I was thinking of borrowing the husbands electric shaver, using the beard trimmer, and just shave her tail. ;-) :lol2:

Had to work on a cats rear end many years ago with my vet friend who was as tuff a cowboy as I have ever known. About 5 minutes into the operation the only words he could utter were: For Gods sake don't let go of that son of a gun"

You go shaving anything on the rear end of a cat and you better have a deep seat and a tight rein. :cowboy:

Amazingly if you do a google search for this there are many who have had the same problem! :lol2:
Ice, cutting off and blowdryers seemed to be the top three that I read. Good luck. Poor cat, poor you.

Solved the problem. Cut off the hair with a pair of sharp scissors. Cat looks funny now.

I should think that a cat would not take kindly to the sound of blow dryer.

Dumb cat.

Apply an ice cube to the affected area for a minute and the wax should harden enough so you can crumble it with your fingers. It should come right out. Or just throw the cat in the freezer for a while.

What are cats good for anyway?

Rub some turpentine on his butt and turn him loose...he'll knock it all off as he goes around all the bushes about 90 mph. :lol: :lol:
