I just rescued a 5 week old kitten and when I brought her home I bathed her. Unfortunately her butt stinks really bad almost like vomit. To make things worse my Maltese dog follows her around licking her butt because it smells so bad, I hate picking her up because I'm afraid I might touch it and I'm afraid she will start to stink up the furniture. Please help me.
