*grins* Sorry, but I just have to say here that "thank goodness for ascii
graphics!" *beams and dooks to all*

Well, you can't really see them, but you can see the swelling if they get
impacted. Here's my lame ascii art of a ferret anus: (# * #) the asterisk
would be the actual anus opening (hole) and the pound signs are where the
sacs are located in the pink skin surrounding the opening. When my
Bullwinkle had impacted sacs those areas looked greasy, swollen and red. He
smelled all the time and got his... juice (sorry for the lack of proper
terminology) on everything.
