I am sorry Bloats has this trouble.
Is she an indoor kitty?
has this "lump" changed in size or color since you first saw it?
does it look like this?
It kind of looks like the last one. It's just a pea-sized, flesh colored bump. It doesn't move and it seems to cause her no issue.
Bloats is an indoor cat and the bump has really changed at all. No color change...nothing :/
It sounds like Bloats has a papilloma. This is a wart like growth usually caused by a virus. The same as a human wart.
You can read more here:
We don't usually remove them unless they cause pain or interfere with the cats life. That is because they usually grow back
Many times the cats immune system will take over and the wart will just disappear.
In the meantime just do not allow Bloats to bite or scratch at it.
here are two Vets that offer a free first visit: just in case you want her seen.
I would just leave it alone unless it gets bigger, spreads or hurts her.
If you still have questions just press reply and I will be here for you.
Thanks for the follow-up. You really helped ease my mind. I think you were 100% correct on the "wart." Bloats seem happy and overall healthy, with the exception of that. Thank you so very much!
It was my pleasure. I am glad Bloats is fine.She is lucky to have YOU!
