Your pet may scoot their rear end across the floor, this could include a fishy or foul odour, excessive licking of the rear end, discomfort while walking or sitting, straining to defecate, redness swelling near the rear end. One of the symptoms with cats is defecating outside the litter box and runny poo.

Can be poor gastrointestinal health, for anal glands to empty properly they need firm and healthy stools to create pressure on the glands as they pass over them, if soft is very difficult for glands to empty properly. Allergies can also be a cause; with cats this can be the need for worming.
