Where are cats’ scent glands located?

I prepared a diagram some years ago which shows where a cat’s scent glands are located. Here it is:

Locations of domestic cat scent glands. You can read much more by clicking on this link.

If you want to read more the scent glands of the domestic or feral cats please go to the page presented below by clicking on the link. I am confident that it will provide the information that you are seeking. It is written in straightforward English but it is quite comprehensive so please give it a visit if you are interested.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
