Exclamation Is my cat sick?

Hello,

I have a 9-year-old neutered male cat who has normal appetite, drinks plenty of water (not an excessive amount), and behaves as normally as one would expect from a cat.

Although he appears perfectly healthy and does not strain while using his litterbox, he sometimes approaches us afterwards with what appears to be a small amount of milky/cloudy liquid on the fur at his posterior end. As the quantity of the liquid is so small, it is difficult for me to determine what it is, but I can only assume it to be urine from its location. This has occurred twice in the past three days.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...should I take Mittens to the vet?

It's hard to say,I have never really heard of that before,I hate to say this but could it be sperm Cats even if neutered still get sexual feelings,I know because I have three males,two who try to mount each other,gay cats (just kidding)
To put your mind at ease call your vet,if something is wrong,better nip it in the bud

I agree it does sound like sperm to me to if he was older when he was fixed he will want to mark his teratory and that could be what he is doing however I would call the vet they can put your mind to ease

If it is urine that is white and cloudy,it might be a discharge,proof of something not right,call the vet to make sure and if something is wrong,like with his kidneys,if caught early is curable.

Call the vet, but it sounds like anal gland fluid to me.
