Starting the holiday weekend with a pretty nasty cat bite
If you vet ever has you hold the front of your cat while she does a quick and unplanned expression of his anal glands say "No Thanks". Let the vet tech do it no matter how sweet the kitty is.
Poor Buddy had some matting because he took a dip in the pool and I didn't know enough to brush him out after. My vet decided to give him a potty patch too and as she was working back there she noticed his anal glands looked bad, rRight before he let them lose on her. I dad been holding his front during the potty patching so I kept holding him as she went in for the squeeze. I can't blame him. I had that tempting meaty part of my palm right in front of his face. He gust bit down to handle the pain like they do in old cowboy movies. I did all the yelling.
The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.
