I also learned that cats and dogs have anal glands. And sometimes these glands can become impacted. Can you say "impacted anal glands?" I knew that you could.
For several years the members of R.E.M. have wanted to name one of their albums, Cat Butt.
Again and again I begged the boyfriend to smell the cat's butt, but he refused. "It smells like poop!" I exclaimed. This situation forced me to go into a pet store where I stood boldly in the center aisle with my hands parked on my ample hips and without shame I shouted: "Do you guys have cat butt wipes?"
The answer was, "Um, sort-of."
And that's good enough for me. The cat, however, is on his own.
