A weird question about cleaning

Hi guys, I just dont know exactly why I started thinking about this, but for the first time the doubt came , so here it goes.
" Why should we clean a  female cat'behind?"
I mean, not the products to use, I want to know if I do the cleaning from down to up or it dosnt make any difference
Mercifully my cats all are being able to do it by itselves and not needing extra help, but...

Most cats can usually take care of that chore themselves but I would say start low & work your way up if you have to help out.  Or maybe one cloth for the "little girl" parts and a different cloth for the "universal" parts.  I would be careful to mix the two cause you don't want to spread any bacteria (or any other bad stuff). :-)

Its exactly that I was thinking about.
The only time I did was a long time ago and I did the way I could ( she was refusing/running) and she finished the work :-)
It was the only time she came with dry stool glued to all the fur around.I did not want her licking that,we didnt know what had caused the diarrea.
I was just a cat mom trainee by that time :-)
I will do better now,if need.

And if kitty has long hair with matted stool attached, you need a hardy assistant wearing body armor and strong suede gauntlets, to hold kitty (presenting him or her business end), and you have to get to work with some later-to-be-disposed-of scissors.  This is not easy, as many kitties have skin that looks just the same color as their hair, and you REALLY have to be sure (if you value the life of your assistant) not to nick the tender skin.

Neither the cat nor the assistant will forgive you for a mistake there.
