My adult cat has suddenly developed a golf ball sized, hard

Customer Question

My adult cat has suddenly developed a golf ball sized, hard mass in her anus. She doesn't seem to mind it, but she's unable to defecate. A couple of days ago I took her to my vet because she was vomiting and defecating a mucousy discharge. They put water under her skin and I took her home. She seemed all right then, but yesterday I found the mass and it seems bigger today.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the cat?
Customer: Yes. She is a rescue cat and won't drink water, so I add it to her food. She is otherwise healthy and happy. She is about 9 years pld and a domestic long hair.

Can you share pictures of the mass?

Is she still eating and drinking well?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Never mind. I asked for a miracle and I got it. It is completely gone.
I took her to my vet today to make sure. Thank you for answering me.
I'm sorry if I took any of your time. I will not need your services now.
