When I had to raise the orphan I found, this was by far the worst part of it. You get the hang of it after a while, but there's a special spot/way you need to stimulate the anus to get them to go. My poor little guy got a rash from me rubbing down there with the wet towel so often. And then when they finally do decide to go, it's like a ****ing lava stream of **** that surprises you in its smell and quantity. I went through so many towels/rags during those few weeks that I just threw away because I couldn't get the piss and **** smell out of them.
Then finally out of the blue they decide to start using a litter box. Like they just wake up one day and go "**** this, I've had it." Animals are crazy.
