    Hi, maybe somebody here has an idea what to do.

    Three weeks ago one of my 6 months old cats starting scooting (dragging her bum on the floor or carpet). I brought both of them to the vet who checked them out and emptied their anal glands.

    Since then I started to mix raw vegetables in their food (they get only wet food with high meat content and twice a week raw meat) and it seemed to be better. but in the last days my little girl started again!!

    Any suggestions what it could be or what I could do?

    This is generally a problem with cats who have problems expressing their anal glands. Allthough worms could also be the problem. Is your kitty up to date with worming? Try this website for info Pet Articles: Anal Glands
