Female scent-cues

Can females mark things with their scent,or leave a pheremone trail? It's apparently un-whiff-able by humans,so no worries....

Re: Female scent-cues

Cats scent mark a lot. They have scent glands in their paws, on top of their head, near the corners of their mouths, and other places. I'm sure they use the different scents each has to convey different messages, like a scent language. Both females and males scent mark with these different smells. We can't smell it, but we are *branded* with scent by our feline masters.

Sshh! I don't talk about it much b/c Arianwen keeps me on a short leash...
