Not my cat, but my dog! It ended up really sore and infected, so get him to the vet asap! Wish I had.. Might have saved some money!

My dog gets this, costs £5 to be drined by the vet and takes 5minutes.Dont stress, make an appt with vet, will be sorted in no time. Might need to keep taking kitty back every few months as i do with dog1. Smell kinda skunky/musky rancid awful pungent nasty.

Have you wormed him recently? I have 3 moggies aged, 13, 3 and 8 months and I've never experienced anything like this.

Hope your moggy is better soon.

I'd say glands. The vet just squeezes the gunk out.
With worms they do that bottom shuffle thing that leaves trails of cat-crap on your carpet.
Cats are such elegant pets.

thanks everyone, i thought it might be glands. i think i'll wait in the waiting when vet empties them, if i catch a whiff i'll hurl all over the floor, table, vet, nurse.
