Question
k youwhy does my cat drag her bottom along the floor,I have recently given worm tablets and flea drops. Thank you

Answer
Hi
often un spayed female cats will display this behaviour when they are on heat.

The other possibility is that they have some discomfort there, some cats get anal gland blockage, which is uncomfortable and sometimes painful. A vet needs to drain them if this is the case.

If your cat is spayed and the behaviour continues then perhaps a trip tot he vet might be the best option.

best wishes kate
