Who Knew I Had Anal Glands?

One day I was rubbing my bum along the carpet because it was itchy and uncomfortable. Some people thought I had worms, but that didn’t make sense since my “owner” for all intents and purposes (we all know who owns whom around here…) dewormed me recently cause I like to eat gross things. So it turned out my anal glands were full and not expressing themselves. Once I got them squeezed (by my “owner”, who also happens to be my doctor) it sure felt a lot better. For some reason my “owner” said we should get the carpets cleaned!
