What is my cat doing?

Every once in a while my cat will wipe her butt across the ground or whatever she's on, most recently, my pillow. She'll look like she's just sitting, but then she pulls her butt across the floor with her front paws and when she does it, she pees or something. It's like a brown-yellow color. Is that pee? I don't know what color cat pee is so, I don't know.. What's going on with her?

like the others have said, most likely worms, but there's also a slight chance the skin is irritated and causing liquid release when stimulated~

She might have worms, because that's what dogs do when they have them. Take her to a vet and have her examined. It's probably nothing serious.

It could be worms, especially if she's an outside cat. They frequently end up with tape worms from eating mice. Tape worms are VERY EASILY transferred to humans. Look for small white specs that look like small pieces of rice attached to the fur around her rectum. Another possible reason she's scooting like this is because she's emptying her anal glands. These are small sacs on either side of the rectum that supplies lubrication for poop exiting the rectum and to scent mark surfaces... Such as your pillow... Eww

Cats also have anal glands that can become blocked, irritated or infected as well. With this and the other problems described, you really need to consult the vet.
