Cat anal glands

Cat anal glands are semi-redundant and were used for territory marking and in some animals for defense.
In cats they are rarely used and can become blocked. This can cause discomfort and a visit to the vet.
My cat (see picture) has blocked cat anal glands, I think. See this post.
Cat's try to unblock the glands by dragging their bottoms along the ground. My cat's anal glands might be infected due to blockage for a time.
It is hard to tell what the problem is. My cat looks healthy and is relatively active for a cat in her mid-80s (she is about 16 years of age in human age terms).
See how old is my cat.
