My cat is acting fine but lately I have felt something

Customer Question

My cat is acting fine but lately I have felt something (feels like a bone) sticking out a bit on her neck, like under her chin and in between her shoulder blades. She is really fluffy so I can't tell how much it sticks out but I can feel it when I touch her there. Is this normal?

I am sorry you are worried about Sparkle.

This is not abnormal. It occurs if the cat has recently lost weight.

As long as it is not bothering her you do not need to be concerned about it.

I hope I have eased your mind.

Please let me know if you wish to discuss the further.

Kind regards,
