Hi all!

I just noticed today my kitten dragging his bum across the floor after he's gone poop! Is that normal???

I actually got my anwser by doing a search of other posts ....

I just took him to the vet last Wednesday and she gave him a pill for deworming, so I'm guessing that's been dealt with ... I'm left to assume that he just has some poop still stuck to his fur .... b/c he doesn't do it all the time.

Anyways, I guess I'll just keep an eye on him for a while.

From what I've read around here, some cats do that to clean their anal glands.

NO NOT TO CLEAN THEM !!!!

Dragging their bum that could indicate an anal gland problem and for that they need to go to the VET to get then expressed.

Please have your baby checked..

I have seen this procedure done. it is said to be just like popping a zit. the anal glands being cleaned and expressed are the same thing. they are having the "waste" caught inside removed - like dust and hair in a vaccume cleaner... but yea get those anal glands checked out asap, or they can get infected...
