In the last few days, when I'm purring and being petted and scratched ... sometimes I squirt a little poo. It's not much, but enough to make my humans go "ewwwwww." This hasn't been a problem before.

My dad is very concerned this could be the beginning of me squirting poo everywhere! Teehee. I don't think so... but I don't understand why this squirty-squirt is happening.

Anyone have any ideas why?

Hi Katrina. Are you sure it's poo that you are squiting? Us kitties have anal glands that sometimes squirt out a foul smelling substance when we get excited. If that is the case you can go to the vet and have them express them for you.

Read down in the Health fourms and you will see one titled "expressing my anal glands". That might give you a bit more info.

Good luck!

Hi! Im the kitty who just had is anal gland expressed! Mom didnt know much about it but apparantly since ive put on some weight this year, the vet says im not able to empty them on my own when i go potty... something about my fat getting in the way. At first I was just really gassy then mom noticed that I was squirting brown liquid out that smelled worse then my poop whenever she picked me up or when I was playing and got too excited. Hopefully I wont have to go back to the vet to have them drained since mom has me on a new workout plan smile
