Unhappy the poop

ok i can pick her up now and she like to play on the floor and rum around on me. she still hisses every so often but much better . one more question now, she likes to poop on me when she runs around on my lap/shoulders lol and it sucks i know she is old and set in her ways but any advice is appreciated.

They just do that. They poop while they run and will just do it. If you figure out a schedule, you can try putting her in a litter box when she usually goes (say twenty minutes after waking).

I keep baby wipes nearby to immediately clean up, so that it isn't smeared and I can keep enjoying her.

If you give her a foot bath when you first take her out, the water will stimulate her to do her business. Usually a pee and 2-3 poops. Give it 5-10 minutes or so. For an adult that will get it out of their system for a few hours, generally 3-4, sometimes more. And otherwise just keep paper towels or hand wipes nearby.
