Clear and googy discharge from my cat

My 7 months old himmie excreted clear, thick discharge this morning. I read some of the posts here and it could be an anal glad secretion but I can't be sure since I didn't witness it. The discharge has no smell and he excreted about 2 tablespoon size of it on my bathroom floor about 3 feet from his litterbox. This is the second time he's done it (last time was about 3 weeks ago). He doesn't seem to be in any particular pain or discomfort and his appetite is normal but I'm not sure if this is a normal behavior for a cat. Can someone give me some advice? Thanks in advance!

yes, he's neutered. It's been a few days since the incident and he isn't licking himself down there as he was previously (didn't realize how often he was doing it until now). I'm inclined to think it was an incident of anal secretion?

If it was an anal glad excretion, you'd know, it stinks to high heaven.

Do you know if it came from the anus or penis?

Anal gland secretions are normally yellowish-white may sometimes be a bit brownish, and very very smelly . A cats anal sacs are smaller than a pea so it would be extremely odd for two tablespoons to be expelled from them.
