Our e-mail conversation this morning:
Me: I have to call the vet today to see if my cat needs to have her anal glands expressed. (She has been licking her butt almost non-stop and a friend who also has an older cat has suggested that this might be the case.) I am putting this off because I have no idea how to begin this conversation.
Scott: How does an anal gland express itself? Spoken word? Painting?Photography? Perhaps dance.
