Default Boy-time clean up?

So the other day, I found evidence of Mr. Winter's boy time activity. I knew this was coming and it doesn't really bother me. What bothers me is that how do you get it off?! I gave him a bath and scrubbed him but it's still sticky and stuck to his fur.

Any advice?

Also I used aveeno oatmeal body wash if that makes any difference and gave him a good soak in some oatmeal soaked water.

Ya.... a good soak and soap and water is about as good as it gets. Stubborn stuff, isn't it?

Yeah, great. And he despises baths. My girls don't like them but Winter really really doesn't like them. He decided he would curl up in a mass of bubbles and water today. I warmed him up nicely though and gave him some mealworms and then clipped his nails so he's not happy with me at all today.

Is having that stuff on him going to cause any problems if I can't get it out all the way?

Not likely. It will wear off in the nature of time. Just keep an eye on it. Do you give warm or cool baths? Also a bit of oil in the bath may help loosen it from the hairs.
Gabriel had some stuck to him second to last bathtime ago and its all gone now. Took a few days to come off. I also was not able to get all of it the bath.

Bruce always has "boy time" he will sometimes do it in my hand. (He's a freak lol) like grace said, all you can do is use some soap an water. I use aveeno oatmeal wash also. I just scrub his belly (and chin ) with a soft tooth brush and he's usually good to go..

Indeed I also used a toothbrush on the belly fur. I had no such luck. Bruce and Gabriel may be soul brothers....

I do lukewarm, like baby bath water. I doubt he would let me get a tooth brush on his belly. I'll have to keep up the baths and hopefully he will get to used it. He's normally so clean he barely needs foot baths throughout the week. Boys will be boys I guess.

My plan was to only have one girl. My plan quickly evolved. lol

I wouldn't have said I wanted a boy and raising Winter was certainly a test but he's my little man.
