Please be aware I am a licensed veterinarian, but I am not your pet’s veterinarian and cannot examine your pet, so I cannot legally provide you with any specific veterinary medical advice such as diagnosis or prescribing medication. However, I can generally speak to help you understand resources that may help you and advise you to seek medical attention.
I'm assuming you're referring to a blood clot? And I was wondering do you think this is attached to her or stuck in her fur?
Do you think this blob on your cat's tail is a blood clot and that it's part of a wound or it's from elsewhere that has just been wiped on the tail?
Without the answers to the questions I asked I can only give you general advice so I hope this helps. I do worry that you said she doesn't like when you touch this area which makes me think it's a wound that's bleeding or has dried blood that's clotted. Because she doesn't want you touching it, and especially due to that reason, I would want to know exactly what it is and if you are unable to examine that because she won't let you, you may consider taking her into the vet for that. It's possible there is sticky blood that has congealed to the fur and is irritating to her but there is no actual wound and then you have the question of where did that blood come from. I understand in a multiple cat household it's frustrating and if somebody vomits we don't know who actually did that so hopefully you will be able to figure that out. I'm happy to discuss this further if you wish. I thank you for reaching out to us here at Just Answer and I sure hope Passe is doing better soon.
That cat has beautiful markings.
Is this painful when it's touched? Could it be that she's been scratching his ear with his left back foot and scratched his skin by accident or do you think it looks like a growth of some sort? Part of it looks raised up and dark.
Any mites that I've ever seen are almost microscopic so unless you have different types of mites in your country, I would say no. In the second picture at the top left, above where it's red, it looks like there's a dark gray raised up part but of course it's a two-dimensional picture. Do you see what I'm seeing? This looks to be part of her body and if it was a might or some bug I would think you'd be able to pull it off.
Is this something that is moving? Does it seem moist like it's seeping any fluid or dry?
Is it painful to her to touch it? Does it seem like it's a boil and there's fluid or pus inside?
I would want to get this checked out and if it's a growth, get it biopsied. Again I'm not aware of any mites that would be something you could see with the naked eye and this does not look like an insect to me but either way if you are concerned I would recommend getting her to the vet to be sure. They could put a needle in it if it is part of her tissue and get some information on the types of cells involved and if it's anything to worry about. Is there anything else I can help you with today?
I hope I was able to answer your question. I sure to luck getting this diagnosed for Passe and hope it's nothing worrisome. I am available if you have any follow-up questions for the next few days.
