Doing research on the internet, it says that if the problem keeps repeating, the glands can be surgically removed because the cats don't really use them anyway.

The glands can also be "expressed" before they get full and abcess, but I was keeping an eye on them this time, and I couldn't tell that there was anything wrong. I thought she was just normally cleaning herself . I can't see taking her to the vet every few months for them to "express" them either, as Worf hates going to the vet so much. But I'm not too crazy about surgery either . Bonochick said before that the vet could show me how to express the glands myself, but I can just see Worf letting me do that . Oh well, I'll see what the vet says.

Ummm...if it's anything like having a dog's anal glands expressed you would not want to do it yourself!

my cat just started peeing on my shoes so far ones I don't really wear but it's gotta stop. I threw out a pair of flip flops today

anyone know how to stop this? I've got all my favorite shoes hidden lol

ETA: If it's not the shoes she'll find something else I just need her to stop peeing outside her box


She's old but perfectly healthy according to the vet

when was the last time she was at the vet? Maybe it's an infection?

redkat,
Any changes in the environment? Anything new? Did you change her litter, or not scoop the box enough? You could try adding another litterbox where she is peeing by the shoes.

Redkat, I have known cats who will zero in on anything rubber (or vinyl) backed and pee on it (bathmats, etc.). What made me thing of it was you said your kitty had targeted flipflops, which sometimes are made out of that same material. Did kitty hit anything else?

Another round of antibiotics for Worf - good thing she doesn't hate the medicine.
