They tend to be more prominent in females than in males, especially if the female is either pregnant or has been recently pregnant. Dorsal to the genital region in both sexes and located directly below the tail is the anus, the external terminal opening of the digestive system. There are two sets of paired appendages, forelimbs, including the manus associated with the cranial portion of the trunk and hindlimbs, including the pes associated with the caudal end of the trunk [Figure 2–3]. Palpate the genital area to ascertain the sex of the cat.

Almost all mammals—including cats, humans, and giraffes—possess seven cervical vertebrae. Although specializations exist in all regions of the vertebral column, certain features are common to all. A vertebra is constructed with a solid centrum or body that forms the main ventral support for the spinal cord that rests in the obvious opening, the vertebral canal. The vertebral canal is completed by a dorsal pair of laminae whose dorsocaudal extensions form the spinous process and a pair of pedicles between the laterally projecting transverse processes or diapophyses and the centrum.
