9 Things You Never Wanted to Know About Cat Anal Glands - Catster
Discussion in ' Cat Health ' started by londonkat , Jun 29, Jun 29, 1. I've read several posts about this phenomenon, and I want to ask a few questions.

Knowing the purpose of these glands as well as the potential complications that may occur involving them will help you keep your cat happy and healthy. Both male and female cats have two pea-sized anal glands located around their rectal openings.
