problems with my cat's anal sacs
My 9 month old kitten's anal sacs don't empty when he goes to the bathroom. BUT, they will empty when he is sleeping in my bed right beside me! PHEW!!!! I take him to the vet every 1 to 2 weeks to get them expressed, but I know I shouldn't have to do that. The vet said he is fine, that maybe I need to add bulk to his diet and give him canned pumpkin, that should bulk up his poo. Needless to say, he had a bad one last night around 4 am. I sure don't like getting up and having to change sheets, so I just rolled over and went back to sleep. Yuck, you are thinking, but ...... they are washed now though! I feel bad for him, but more for myself! Ha! Has anyone ever had that problem? This has been going on since I adopted him 5 months ago. He was a hurricane Katrina survivor and was rescued and held by Pasada. He is so special and perfect except for this. His name is Mango and he is a tabby and I call him Butt Boy when this happens. I have changed his diet and added pumpkin, which he loves. But it has only been a week. HELP!!!!
