    sticky fur on the belly, please help

    Last week I discovered that much of Avy's fur on the belly was like glued together. It took me four days to make it clean, and the last little bit, I was forced to pull out of to see what was underneath. Underneath his stomach and fur look´d normal, so I thought no more about it.
    But today, less than a week later, a different part of the fur on the belly is like glued together. Does anyone know why it stick together? And what should I do?
    This worryes me a lot, please help

    If he is a boy it is nothing to worry about. Once the boys are mature they will masturbate. It is hard to clean up.

    ^^Yup, gross but that's boys for ya! hahaha!

    If my little boy was getting some "build up" I would just give him a nice warm bath and use a soft tooth brush very gently on his belly to get it off with some Aveeno body wash. I would also have to soak his bedding before washing it to soften it up, yech!
