Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Angel star. Is there a chance you can take a picture of the sore and post it with the paper clip icon for me to see what you're seeing? Is she indoors only?

Some are just not easy areas / lesions to photograph. Getting her seen by your vet is going to be the best thing! I'm glad you recognize this. When a cat has a "sore" a lot of them turn out to be abscesses that have happened due to being bit in that area. IF she's around other cats or if she's indoor / outdoor, then that could be the issue.
