The stinky fluid is just anal gland secretion which all cats have. Cats don't normally expel anal gland secretions when not pooping. Your cat's glands may be a little full so some leaked out. You can empty the glands at home yourself by following videos or you can have the vet or a groomer do it. The picture of your cat's butt looks fine to me.

Totally agree with LTS3 LTS3 . Third option...have your vet show you how to do it, if you're worried with just videos. It is NOT hard to do. It IS also very unpleasant, but far cheaper than a vet. My tummy is fairly strong, but I'm not the most confident person about things like that, so I'd opt for having the vet show me how to do it, myself.

It's not hard to do unless you have a very squirmy cranky cat and an extra pair of hands to hold the cat still doesn't help. Most cats don't like you messing around back there so having the vet do it is best. I can do my cat but he more or less holds still.
