Hello everyone I am a new member here! I have a question about my male cat. He, every now and then., puts his tail between his legs and rubs his butt on the floor...he just recently had a leg injury..a pulled muscle..so I don't know if maybe the two are connected. Maybe he is in heat! Any

Could be anal gland problems but I'm guessing worms. I'd take him to the vet, or at least have a fecal sample done. Please don't use any of the over-the-counter worm meds. Very bad and not effective.

Um, male cats can't go into heat, it's physically impossible. A vet's visit is in order to make sure he doesn't have impacted anal glands, worms or something other. Also, if he isn't neutered, please make an appointment to have him snipped :)

Welcome to the board and we'd love to see pics of your kitty. I agree with the others... a trip to the vet is necessary. :cat:
