OK, this might be a really dumb question. Do cats have anal glands and do they ever need to be expressed? I got Lurch yesterday from a shelter and he's really stinky (poop). I assumed it was shelter smell or he had rolled in it. I wiped him down with bathroom wipes and it helped a little. I just tried to give him a bath - for a disabled little guy, he's pretty strong MOL!
) I wasn't able to wash most of him, unfortunately.
He seems to have a small swelling where he once had testicles :-O that he doesn't like me to touch. (I have a call in to the shelter to find out when he was neutered.) It's very poopy smelling back there, but he had a normal stool overnight. That's why I was thinking maybe it was an anal gland problem. Any thoughts?
