HI Dr. W here. I'm sorry to hear this. Is Chubbers eating and drinking normally?

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
He is drinking normally, but eating is a minimum. I just Fed him and he was eating a little bit.

Okay it's good that he's still eating and drinking. From what I can see in the picture these don't look infected, but they could still be causing a problem. They are originating from his abdomen and not his scrotum right?

Correct. I held Him up and had my dad look and it is in his abdomen. I’m going to call the local animal hospital tomorrow and I’m hoping they can help without much cost.

Small rodents do commonly develop different types of masses. These are not necessarily cancerous though. They could very well be benign. Is there a vet nearby that you can take him to to take a closer look at them and possibly even look at one under the microscope?

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question

Ok great! That's a good idea. If your vet feels they are just benign, you will just need to eatch them and keep them from becoming infected.
