I was just reading up about cat anal glands, because I knew nothing about them, and I wanted to know more about them. I was reading about some problems that occur with cats and their anal glands, and then suddenly it was like a red flag popped up. I was reading how bleeding and scuuting across the floor is a sign that something is wrong. My cat Flash has had blood and mucus quite a few times after going to the bathroom, and she has scutted across the floor once in a while this month, but until reading I thought this was just some weird behavior, never paying attention to it. Also after reading it says overweight cats are more prone to it, and my cat is 2 pounds overweight. Her glands have never been squeezed in the 3 years we had her. She has her yearly checkup this week, and I wanted to tell the vet about the problem, but if something needs to be done like surgery, we cant afford that. Does this sound like it could be serious, or do her glands just need to be squeezed, and then she will be fine?
